A Hunter Orc as seen in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

The Hunter Orcs were a ruthless group of Orcs who served Azog the Pale Orc and followed Fimbul and Yazneg. The Moria Orcs and Gundabad Orcs who roamed the lands east of the Misty Mountains were among those recruited by Azog, as they were known to be particularly aggressive Orcs. Mounted on Gundabad Wargs, they could quickly cover and control broad territories.

Orcs denoted specifically as "Hunter Orcs" are never mentioned by J.R.R. Tolkien, and were invented for The Hobbit film trilogy.
