‘There are Orcs, very many of them,’ he said. ‘And some are large and evil: black Uruks of Mordor.'

The Fellowship of the Ring, The Bridge of Khazad-dûm

Gundabad Uruks are the elite unit of the faction Gundabad. They wield Gundabad Uruk weapons which have the same base strength as Uruk equipment and wear Gundabad Uruk armour. They are much stronger than regular Gundabad Orcs.

Despite popular belief, they are in fact canon, and are meant to represent the huge Orcs of Bolg's bodyguard.


They will make Orc noises like other Orcs and Uruks, they eat maggoty bread and attack enemy factions if they come within their sight range. They will see and hunt you down if you come within 16 blocks of them if you have negative alignment with Gundabad.


They spawn in the Misty Mountains and Grey Mountains at night, and commonly in the caves under the mountains. They will also spawn in Gundabad invasions anywhere. In Public Beta 29 their spawning rate was decreased.


They drop Orc bones, rotten flesh, maggoty bread, coins, Orc draught and Uruk steel ingots and rarely the armour pieces and weapon they are wielding.

Advantages Disadvantages
Strong armour and high health Relatively expensive
Strong weaponry Cannot ride Wargs
Can be hired pretty much anywhere in the West Need to pledge
Not weakened by daylight
