Grunts are the first and last line of the Horde's defense. These powerful fighters arm themselves with mighty battle-axes and display all of the savagery and cunning of their race. In past generations, Grunts were characterized by their depravity and brutality. But now, under the visionary leadership of Thrall, the Grunts more closely resemble their savage, yet noble ancestors.
Brutish Orc warrior. Can learn Berserker Strength. Attacks land units.
With their Berserker Strength upgrade and Pillage ability Grunts can continue to be a useful unit throughout the game. Grunts have more hit points than Raiders. You may wish to switch to Taurens once available which are much more powerful, but also are more expensive and require more food.
