|“||As soon as the enemy had gained possession of the eastern end of the Fords there appeared a company of men or Orc-men (evidently dispatched for the purpose), ferocious, mail-clad, and armed with axes.||”|
– The Unfinished Tales, "The Battles of the Fords of Isen".
Uruk berserkers are the strongest Uruks to ever come out of the pits of Isengard.
These Uruks will attack any player or NPC with a negative Isengard alignment, and can normally run faster than the player. They have even deeper voices than regular Uruks. As of Public Beta 26, they no longer have smoke above their heads. They are easily recognizable due to the White Hand that has been pressed onto their helmets.
In the FilmsEdit
In the films Uruk berserkers were the elite of Saruman's army, and they wore no armour. They stood around seven feet tall, and weighed over three hundred pounds. Before going into battle, they drove themselves into a battle-frenzy that made them virtually immune to any pain whatsoever. They took no regard to personal safety, wearing no armour (unlike in the Mod), and were expected to fight to the death.
Their swords were five feet long, with a foot-long spike at the end; despite it being a cumbersome weapon, it was nevertheless effective; one hit from this weapon was sufficient to cut a man in half. Even more so, the effect of seeing such a huge weapon was very intimidating.
Even though there were only thirty or so ever present at the Battle of the Hornburg, they inflicted great losses; Gimli himself slew three of them! One with an axe to the hm-hm.
These powerful units can be yours with a Isengard alignment of +300 and 60 silver coins. Many people favour them as they have strong armour health and attack and they beat most mobs in one on one fights!
