| Damage required for special: 200
A moderately armored viking with ranged capabilities and a shield to guard against the attacks of all opponents. The Huscarl may not be as crazy as the Berserker, but maybe that's a good thing. What lunatic goes into combat shirtless anyway!
The Huscarl is considered sane by the Vikings, which is not surprising when he's compared to the Berserker. Huscarls have a hardy constitution and tough armor, but are a little slow. They are a semi-heavy force that can take and deal considerable amounts of damage.
Specially trained in the art of axe-combat, they wield a heavy battleaxe for fighting, and a set of smaller axes for throwing. With their nigh-impenetrable shield, these Viking troops are prepared for anything and lack any serious drawbacks. Valhalla!

| More glamorous than the Berserker's crude hunk of stone, it matches it in power, but is surpassed in speed. Much like the Huscarl and Berserker themselves.
|| The Shield offers good protection, and the sword slices faster than the axe. The damage is unimpressive, but it charges quickly. The Shield's main purpose is to protect the Huscarl and his teammates from ranged weapons and kegs. But you can always bash with it if that's what you favor.
|| Huscarl's ranged weapons. Deadly accurate, as well as just deadly. Charging increases the damage and range of the throw, and the axes are able to ricochet off of hard surfaces if thrown at the right angle.
The Huscarl can carry 6 of these with him.
| Damage: 95 (charged), 70 (not charged)
|| Damage: 37 (charged), 24 (not charged)
|| Damage (far): 60 (charged), 25 (not charged)
| Forward interval: 21
|| Shield bash charge: 37 (charged), 34 (not charged)
|| Damage (close): 33 (charged), 14 (not charged)
| String: 13
|| Special Damage: 30x5
| When your special meter is filled press the special button to quickly charge forward with the Shield, heavily damaging and knocking back enemies in your path.
- The Huscarl was used as the "mascot" of Odin's Pizza Place, a joke/slang first used by the PVKII community but popularized by the Garry's Mod community by the time Pirates, Vikings and Knights II was released on Steam, on February 2010. Many Gmod videos starring the Huscarl (with the old Vikings voice clips) demonstrate a morbid obsession of the title character with pizza.
- There's a bit of a debate about whether or not the Huscarl is older than the Berserker and vice-versa in terms of character. Huscarl's short height and grizzly hair suggests that he's the older one, however, by comparing both characters' faces, the Berserker has a more wrinkly visage. Some people suggest that they have roughly the same age, which seems to be the most plausible theory.
