Orcish Berserkers are iconic. When someone thinks about an orc, the idea of a howling, frothing murder machine with a huge axe is what often comes to mind. Orc Berserkers have earned that reputation through lots of bloodshed and slaughter. When a Berserker enters the battlefield, he aims to kill all opposition, though they also welcome dying in battle as well; this mindset makes forcing an Orc Army to retreat a tricky proposition at best.
Orc Berserkers tend to be at their most effective when they are fresh; their blows are more powerful and more likely to kill. Grievous wounds can curb the more destructive strikes, but any who think that a Berserker isn’t dangerous at that point tend not to live much longer.
