Ettins are enemies in Hexen.
They are two-headed monsters outfitted with armor and maces, the mutated remains of the Legion's soldiers, and are essentially the lowest tier of monster and very straightforward to kill, even with 175 Hit points. Ettins are the most common enemy in the game, found in every single stage, and are the first encountered. In addition, they spawn randomly (about a few per 4 minutes on most maps) as long as the player is on a given map. Their melee attacks consist of mace swings; however, these only cause a small amount of damage and are easily dodged by the player. However, they can be dangerous in high numbers or even as meat shields for some of the more powerful adversaries. They gib when they take too much damage or get killed by the Quietus, Wraithverge, or Bloodscourge weapons or the Mage's or Fighter's exploding Flechette. Generally, against a lone ettin or a couple, you're best off using your first weapon to dispatch them as its not worth wasting mana.
