Abyssal bludgeon detail.png

The abyssal bludgeon is a two-handed crush weapon created by having The Overseer combine three untradeable components — the bludgeon axon, bludgeon claw, and bludgeon spine. If the player already had the Overseer create one, they can use the three components on the book it left behind. Level 70 Attack and Strength are required to equip this weapon.

The components can be obtained from using the unsired, dropped by the Abyssal Sire, on the Font of Consumption. In terms of probability, it takes approximately 618 kills on average to get all three components.

The bludgeon features a unique characteristic: regardless of which attack style is selected, only aggressive attacks are available, meaning it is only able to be used for Strength training.

Special attack[edit | edit source]

The abyssal bludgeon has a special attack, Penance, which increases damage dealt by 0.5% for every prayer point that the wielder is missing, consuming 50% of the wielder's special attack energy.

Uses[edit | edit source]

The bludgeon has the same attack speed as the abyssal whip, and although it does not match the offensive bonuses of a whip combined with a dragon defender or Avernic defender, the bludgeon has the second highest overall damage of any crush weapon, making it a good option against monsters weak to crush, such as gargoyles or kalphites. However, against enemies with a high Defence level that are weak to crush, the elder maul may be a better alternative.

The abyssal bludgeon is considered to be the second best weapon to train Strength with, behind the more expensive Ghrazi rapier, Blade of saeldor, and Inquisitor's mace. It has superior damage per second of every other non-degradable weapon to feature an "aggressive" attack style, making it a common weapon choice for mid-wealth players. Saradomin's blessed sword does possess a slightly higher Strength bonus than the bludgeon, but it is not cost-effective as it consumes Saradomin swords.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The process to create the weapon is similar to RuneScape 3's Spider leg; both items require the player to obtain three untradeable pieces in order to create the said item.
  • Even though the special attack creates bubbling pools which closely resemble an attack by the Abyssal Sire which can poison the player, the special attack will not poison the victim.
