In Old School RuneScape, Gargoyle is a slayer monster which can be found in the top floor and basement of the Slayer Tower. If you want to defeat this monster, you need to use the best weapon. So, what is the best weapon for defeating Gargoyle in OSRS? Here, we will inform you about it.
The Best Weapon for Defeating Gargoyle
If you want to defeat OSRS Gargoyle, you need to have 75 slayers and enough slayer points or gp to be able to buy the hammer items and gargoyle smasher perk. You can buy a rock hammer which can be bought from a slayer master.
The best weapon that you are able to use for defeating Gargoyle is the abyssal bludgeon. It is a two handed crush weapon. It is created by having The Overseer combine three untradeable components including bludgeon claw, bludgeon axon, and bludgeon spine. If you have had the Overseer to create it, you are able to use the three components on the book it left behind. To equip this weapon, you need level 70 Attack and Strength. You are able to get the components from using the unsired, dropped by the Abyssal Sire, on the Font of Consumption.
If you want to finish a full budgeon, the average number of Sire kills needed by players is 619.4. The number of kills most players need to get to complete a bludgeon is at least 552. The bludgeon has a unique characteristic where all of its attack styles are aggressive. It means that it is only able to be used for Strength training. Besides, all of its attack styles use crush.
