Mordor is an evil faction in all three Battle for Middle-earth games, and the most expansive of the evil armies. It comprises all who made up Sauron's armies in the Third Age, as well as Mordor's allies.

Game performance Edit

The faction of Mordor is made up of the servants of the Dark Lord Sauron. Mordor's orcs are medium-strong, and take up a lot of command points, but are free (in the first game). Haradrim are cheap, taking few command points but are weak unless in groups. Trolls are expensive, but take very few command points, so troll armies are feasible.

Mordor has three siege weapons, catapults for bombarding, rams for demolishing in close proximity, and siege towers for getting on castle walls. Múmakil are enormous, scary, and destructive to all infantry.



Mordor Orc swordsmenEdit

Orc warriors are the backbone of the Mordor army. They are weak, but the orcs are well known with the term "strength in numbers". Though they are not powerful, they are a very useful early game unit and later in the game, they could be used as arrow fodder.

Mordor Orc ArchersEdit

Orc Archers are expensive for archers, but this is counterbalanced by the free prduction of their warrior counterparts. Use orcs archers against  swordsmen, as they can easily be killed by enemy archers.


Mordor's only pikemen, but also effective against cavalry and heroes.

Corsairs of UmbarEdit

Available in BFME II - another swordsmen and ranged unit

Mordor battering ramEdit

Seige unit which easily destroys buildings, and is cheap and fast producing.

Mordor catapultEdit

This weapon doesn't need a fire munition upgrade, as it already uses flaming shot.

Siege TowerEdit

Only used as a protective ladder for infantry; less dextrous than Isengard's ladder.

Attack TrollEdit

Unlike the weaker Cave troll, Attack trolls are not only powerful, but they have armor, and the Attack Troll weilds a huge club.

Mumakil (the Oliphaunt)Edit

Mordor's powerful unit donated by the exotic Harad. These are giant elephants carrying lots of archers on its back. Mumakil can only be brought down by large groups of archers or pikemen, and can destroy most everything else. Beware of silverthorn/fire arrows.


Named after the Mace used by Sauron's former lord, Melkor, Grond is the most powerful battering-ram in all of existence. Unfortunately, Grond can only be used during the campaign of The Battle for Middle-earth, and is not available in skirmishes.

Buildings Edit

Powers Edit
