Gargoyles are Slayer monsters located in the Slayer Tower and the Stronghold Slayer Cave (requiring a slayer task), requiring 75 Slayer in order to be harmed. Gargoyles, like rockslugs, cannot be killed normally.

In order to kill a gargoyle, a rock hammer must be used when they reach 9 or lower hitpoints. This can be very click intensive and is not always preferred; fortunately, you can buy the "Gargoyle Smasher" perk from the Slayer store (requiring 120 Slayer points), which will automatically smash the gargoyle when it falls to 9 or lower hitpoints (you still must have the rock hammer in your inventory for this to work).

Gargoyles are the only monsters which drop granite mauls and adamant boots.

Many players believe that using the crush attack style when fighting gargoyles is ideal, even when the crush bonus on their weapon is weak. In reality, the only weapons that benefit from switching to a weaker crush style when fighting gargoyles are Dharok's greataxe, Zamorakian hasta with Dragon defender, the Abyssal bludgeon or a Guthan's warspear. In all other cases, players are better off using the best style for their chosen weapon. The Abyssal bludgeon is the most efficient weapon to use against Gargoyles, followed by Abyssal whip with Dragon defender. Leaf-bladed battleaxe with Dragon defender is also a favorable and affordable option.

Due to the amount of rune item drops, it is recommended to bring High Level Alchemy runes to reduce the frequency of banking and save inventory space.

You cannot use a dwarf multicannon in any locations where gargoyles are found.
