The Uruk Chieftain can be found in camps. You must have an Isengard alignment of at least +150 to hire troops from him. You can hire various Isengard units from him if you have enough alignment and silver coins. If killed, the chieftain will drop Uruk steel ingots, rotten flesh, maggoty bread, Orc bones, orc-draught (rare), and rarely a piece of armour in addition to a large floating coin showing were he will respawn. The only way to destroy it is to break it in creative mode.

Upon hiring a unit from an Uruk chieftain, the player earns the achievement "Pillaging Time".
