Orc Grunts are enemies encountered in the DLC Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep. They are smallish orcs that wield large axes.



Orc Grunts will charge at their enemy to hit them with their melee weapon. In most cases, Orc Grunts will perform a leaping melee attack, instead of getting up close to deal damage. They can also stop in place and hurl their axe from a distance.

Orc Grunts are not especially tough. Their head is a critical hit point, and they are vulnerable to incendiary damage.


  • Killing an Orc Grunt contributes to the Orcs Must Perish challenge in the challenge list.
  • Orc Grunts have different names for each difficulty level:
    • Normal Mode: Orc Grunt
    • TVHM: Orc Hireling
    • UVHM: Orc Minion
