This article contains lore or information taken from Warcraft: Orcs & Humans and/or its manual.

Grunts are the first level of warrior in the service of our armies. Trained for close combat, these soldiers make excellent fodder for wading through Human forces. Use of the ax and shield is their specialty, and they are hearty fighters with a taste for blood.[1]

Information

The backbone of any army, Grunts are the most basic attacking units that can be built. While not very powerful or resistant, they are well prepared to take on any unit, are cheap and don't require any lumber or any additional buildings to train, making them both the first line of attack of an army and a resourceful last-ditch defence. They also come in handy as cannon fodder, to take on Water Elementals or Daemons while the latter are being attacked by Spearmen and spell casters.
