Batterhead is an epic neutral minion card, from the Rise of Shadows set.

How to get[edit | edit source]

Batterhead can be obtained through Rise of Shadows card packs, through crafting, or as an Arena reward. Regular Batterhead can also be obtained through the Highest Rank Bonus chest at the end of a Ranked season.

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Batterhead 400 100
Golden Batterhead 1600 400

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • If Batterhead attacks, leaving it exhausted, but kills a minion from a spell such as Mass Hysteria, it can attack again.[1]
  • If Batterhead kills multiple minions with one attack (Ex. with Sweeping Strikes), it only gains one additional attack.[2]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Batterhead is best against flood - type decks such as token druid. It can be used as a budget Baron Geddon. Play it when the opponent has nearly a full board for maximum value.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Batterhead is unique to Hearthstone. He is one of the henchmen of the League of E.V.I.L., and while not very smart, he has a very thick head and serves as the muscle of the operation.[3]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Because of Batterhead's interactions with cards like Spirit of the Rhino, it went through a number of iterations during development. An early prototype known as "Kobold Batterhead" had Rush and "Battlecry: Unlimited attacks this turn". A second iteration featured Rush and the text "After this attacks a minion, it may attack again". These iterations led to the final version of Batterhead, which is meant to fill a similar role to Primordial Drake from the Journey to Un'Goro set.[3]
