The Abyssal walker is one of many monsters which can be found in the Abyss, and also in the Abyssal Area (fairy ring code: ALR). They are difficult to hunt as they seem to have a high defence, hitpoints, and strength, although they have low accuracy. It should also be noted that they are difficult to poison, although they are not immune to it. Abyssal walkers killed in the Abyss yield much lower experience. These monsters are aggressive, but will stop being aggressive after a while as well as the Abyssal guardian and the Abyssal leech.
If hunting Abyssal monsters for essence pouches, it is recommended to use magic against these, as despite their high magic defence, they have a very low magic level, enabling magic spells to hit accurately. At relatively high Defence and Magic levels (70+) a player should have little to no trouble with them, even accounting for the aggressive monsters in the outer ring of the Abyss. Alternatively, a crush weapon or a weapon with a secondary crush style can be used effectively due to their low crush defence.
