Rat Ogre

Rat Ogre portrait


About twice the size of a regular human, the Rat Ogre is the result of horrendous surgical and crossbreeding experiments (mainly, but not limited to, between Skaven and Ogres). A feral, primal, nearly unstoppable killing machine, the Rat Ogre has the strength and size to cause the ground to shake as it charges. Should our heroes fail to move and be caught in the charge, they'll find themselves on the receiving end of the Rat Ogre's claws. The Rat Ogre is also known to grab nearby victims (like a hero, for instance) and throw it quite a distance. For the hero, sailing through the air might be exhilarating, but the abrupt and painful landing is definitely not. On the whole, the Rat Ogre is a mindless brute, relying on aggression and muscle to get the job done. It will focus its attacks on one hero at a time, enabling the rest of the party to assist in taking it down, while the Rat Ogre's attention is focused on its sole target. As always, the key to victory is teamwork.


Battle Tank Made Flesh

Once the Rat Ogre has got you in its sights and charges, you'd better run if you hold your life dear. Let your teammates whittle him down and keep moving, until the Rat Ogre switches targets.

Slams And Throws

The Rat Ogre will not only slam his gigantic fists into the player, it will also throw the player into the air and several meters backwards. Be especially careful around ledges or big groups of Clanrats.

Work As A Team Or Die Alone

You will need to work as a team to have even the slightest chance of surviving a Rat Ogre's attack. Approach him from different angles and assist each other when it starts focusing on one player.
