Frost giant berserker is a type of monster in ADOM. They are strong monsters that can unleash multiple attacks in one turn. They can smash doors and attack from afar by firing rocks, and often drop the slings they use when killed.

Like most creatures of ice they are immune to cold attacks, but highly vulnerable to fire — something certainly worth bearing in mind for physically weak spellcasters trying to survive against them.

Frost giant berserkers appear somewhat often in the Frost Giant Jarl Caves, with a few of them guaranteed to appear in the lesser vault on the last level of the cave.

Monster memory[]

Sometimes among the giants of the cold there are challenges of strength for positions of power; when one who has long held power loses a challenge, they have been known to fly into rages of destruction that force their communities to expel them into the outer world. These berserkers seek only to destroy, refusing to acknowledge their loss of power by exerting it on all they encounter.
