Chaos Warriors (Great Weapons) are a Warriors of Chaos melee infantry unit introduced in Total War: Warhammer. Chaos Warriors come alive in the midst of bloody battle; they thrive when slaughtering similar foes.
Chaos Warriors are fighters of unmatched prowess. Their strength is infernal and their bodies are as tough as the Iron Mountains. Imbued with the power of Chaos and encased in suits of hell-forged armour, a Chaos Warrior is equal to several battle-hardened mortal men. They are no longer truly human, but living weapons, honed perfectly for the bloody tasks before them. A Chaos Warrior has no need of food, drink or sleep, for he is nourished by the carnage that he wreaks. He has nothing but contempt for the weak or the cowardly and goes about the business of murder with a vengeance, for there is always a part of the man who was that rages against that which he has become. A Chaos Warrior's only solace is in slaughter - the fulfilment of his new existence as an instrument of his blasphemous God's will, and at battle's end, his armour is spattered with the lifeblood of the slain.
Strengths & Weaknesses
▲Armour-Piercing: The damage of armour-piercing weapons mostly ignores the armour of the target, making them the ideal choice against heavily-armoured enemies. They are often heavier and attack at a slower rate though, making them less efficient against poorly-armoured targets.
▲Armoured: Armoured units can block damage from any source apart from Armour-Piercing damage.
While they do give up their shields and some melee defense, their AP damage makes this great weapon version much more effective against armoured infantry. If fighting more armoured large units, use halberds instead.
