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 600 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.

A player performs the abyssal bludgeon's special attack, Penance.

Special attack

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.


The bludgeon has the same attack speed as the Abyssal whip, and although it does not match the strength bonus of a whip combined with a Dragon defender, the bludgeon has the highest overall damage of any crush weapon, making it the superior option against monsters weak to crush, such as Gargoyles or Kalphites.

The Abyssal bludgeon is considered to be the second best weapon to train Strength with, behind the more expensive Ghrazi rapier. 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.

  • 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.
  • Upon release, the abyssal bludgeon's special attack did 0.3% damage per missing prayer point. This was buffed in an update on 22 October 2015.
    • The abyssal bludgeon weighed 0 kg, despite the components required to create it being 2 kg each (adding up to 6 kg). This was changed in an update on 11 January 2018.
