Ah, Shadow of Mordor orcs. So silly. And also so, so creepy when they want to be. Reddit user ootinii captured this particularly… vivid taunt from a nemesis I have yet to come across in my own orc-slaying adventures.
I’d put it right up there with insane giggling as one of the most unsettling ways an enemy can taunt you in this new game:
Also I have to wonder: what happened after this video was captured? If the player defeated the chomptacular orc, did he come back again — as so many of Mordor’s orcs do? And if he did come back, what was the follow up conversation like? “Er, sorry Talion, I think we got off on the wrong foot there… next time I’ll try to communicate my complex and mixed feelings about our relationship with more tact and grace than just gnashing my teeth together to mimic what I plan to do with your corpse.”
