Granite maul detail.png

The granite maul is a two-handed melee weapon that requires 50 Strength and Attack to wield. They are dropped by gargoyles (75 Slayer required), which are in the Slayer Tower.

Players can use a granite clamp, obtained from the Bounty Hunter Store, to cosmetically enhance the granite maul, creating a granite maul (or). This only alters its appearance, and becomes untradeable. The clamp is effectively consumed by this process, as while the maul can be reverted, the clamp will not be retained.

Special attack

A player performing the granite maul's special attack, Quick Smash.

The granite maul's special attack, Quick Smash, consumes 50% of the player's special attack energy and deals an instant attack. This can result in two or three hits in a very short amount of time, making it a popular choice for player killing. If the three hits are timed correctly, the granite maul can kill instantly. However, one drawback is that unlike most special attacks, Quick Smash does not increase accuracy.

It is commonly used in the Nightmare Zone in conjunction with the Power surge power-up. Because Quick Smash can be performed rapidly under the effect of Power surge, the granite maul is able to put out more total damage than other special attacks for as long as the power-up is active.

Note: Initiating combat with the granite maul's special attack is wasteful as the player character will not deal an instant hit afterwards, with the regular delay occurring instead.
