The most fanatical and ferocious of the Rotblood tribe, the Savage enters battle with an axe grasped tight in each hand, throwing himself at the enemy in all-consuming frenzy. A level-headed defence and precisely-timed counter-attacks are key to surviving his assault.

Savages are a type of Chaos Infantry, and also part of the Marauder group.

Sometimes called "Frothers" by the Heroes, Savages are brutes that carry dual hand axes. They attack quickly with a leaping charge and a barrage of blows. Savages don't wear armor or much clothing, instead showing their naked, tattoo-covered torsos.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • Once they start swinging it it best to keep your block up until they finish their combo, as they deal high damage and don't leave enough space for you to strike back between blows.
  • Savages have increased stagger resistance during their flurry of attacks (comparable to the Monster class), it is however possible to knock them back before they barrage you.
  • They are highly susceptible to a quick head shot when they charge at you, since they won't bother at all to protect their head and will simply run at you with open arms.
  • Due to their raw damage output, dealing with Savages should be prioritized over dealing with accompanying Maulers.

Notes[edit | edit source]

The term "Frother", used by the Heroes to alert the others of Savages, probably derives from the expression "to froth from the mouth", which can mean "being very angry or raging".
