Orcs Fact 1.jpg

Orcs are a race of green-skinned humanoid creatures encountered in Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep as enemies. They are generally brutish and primitive, residing in crude huts of animal skin and wearing ragged scraps of clothing. Their armaments are similarly crude, and tend towards spiked clubs, and mighty warhammers. Most orcs don't adorn themselves with armour, but a few are known to wear scraps of metal, or even a helmet.
