The Golem is an enemy encountered in Heretic.

The Golem is a humanoid creature mostly encased in some kind of stone. They are one of the first enemies encountered and are very common through most of the game.

There is a more powerful variant of this creature known as the Nitrogolem.

Attacks & Strategy

They have only one form of attack, in which they can punch the player at close range. Upon their death, their body bursts open, releasing their spirit. They also have a chance to drop a Wand Crystal at this time.


Like the other ghost variants, a Golem Ghost cannot be hit with certain weapon projectiles.


Notes & Trivia

  • The Wand Crystal drops are worth less than a normal pickup (4 shots instead of 10).
