"He led his attackers into an explosive trap. The destruction could be seen from the slopes of Oroduin."


  • Kill 30 orcs with explosive barrels
  • Bonus: Don't get hit


  • You are situated on top of a bluff; enemies will try to surround you from all angles. As they are archers, it is wise to dodge whenever you are not attacking.
  • There is plenty of ammo around, so it is actually quite difficult to die in this mission.
  • While the explosive barrels are necessary to complete the mission, don't be afraid to cut down the number of archers the old-fashioned way. Allowing the enemy to completely surround you greatly increases your chances of getting hit and losing the bonus.
