Physical Description

The Orc Berserker was a concept developed for Peter Jackson's film The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. The Berserker is portrayed as a juggernaut-type of Uruk of Saruman with a great two-handed sword. It wears little armor, and, according to the Weta Workshop designers, has a helm which it fills with blood before placing on its head and charging into battle, developing a blood-lust.[source?]

A Berserker Uruk-hai is also featured in LEGO: The Lord of the Rings in the set The Battle of Helm's Deep.[1]
