Blunderbores are a type of demon.
Blunderbores were originally bred as slave labor. However, they were pressed into service by the forces of Hell, and alchemical enhancements increased the physical muscle mass of these warriors far beyond normal proportions. Their heads, and minds for that matter, have suffered in the transformation, making them quite single-minded in their need to fight. As a sign of dominance and intimidation over smaller opponents, they commonly use the bodies of those they have defeated as weapons. Their tactics consist of lumbering up to their foes and pummelling them with their enormous fists.
Blunderbores eat any meat they can find, in any condition. They will not put it down even as they fight.
There are a number of types of Blunderbore. The original type served as the prototype for all variants to come. While these Blunderbores are not as advanced as their breathren, they are still a menace when taking orders from their masters. Blunderbore variants include:
- Maulers: These Blunderbores take thick-witted joy in pounding things. If they have nothing to attack, they will punch buildings, the ground, or each other.
- Urdars: The newest and smartest of the line. Their power is great enough that the lords of Hell keep them as bodyguards and as highly resistant torture subjects. The spine of the urdar is known to possess unique magical properties that unlock arcane secrets for those brave enough to wield it.
Blunderbores are ogre-like monsters found in later acts of Diablo II. Because of their enormous strength, their attacks will stun anyone unlucky to be hit. They are quite easy to outwit, but should still be considered a serious threat. They also possess twice the health recovery rate of normal monsters. Blunderbores are often found wandering in old temples and underground tombs.
Blunderbores come in three other variants: Gorebelly, Mauler and Urdar.
These monsters have a 15% chance of Crushing Blow in Nightmare and a 25% chance of Crushing Blow in Hell. On Hell Difficulty, Blunderbores are immune to Fire, Gorebellies to Cold, and Maulers to Lightning. Urdars do not possess any immunities.
There are Super Unique Blunderbores.

- If one looks closely, their "clubs" are actually chainbound corpses (best visible on the artwork).
