Rats attacking B.J.


A rat, ready to strike

Mutant Rats[1] (often known simply as Rats) are enemies unique to the SNES port of Wolfenstein 3D. These critters are huge mutants used as an attacking force by the Master State. Mutant rats were added to the game in order to replace dogs, because of the strong censorship of the port.

Tactical analysisEdit

The rats attacks very much like the dogs, so the same strategies should be used. Where possible, try to avoid wasting ammunition on them: the Knife is sufficient to dispatch them.
