Don't you think the Berserker Uruk-hai could have been killed at Helm's Deep?
they could have something like a spear and just throw it at him.
There were so many there with deadly precision.
I really don't get it...

Firstly, because by the time they noticed him, he had already built up great momentum, and was almost at the wall, and even if hit by arrows or a spear, someone running is going to take a bit of time to stop when they're running that fast. Secondly, he was a berserker, which means that he in all likelihood didn't feel pain the way we do, or even the way a normal Uruk-Hai does.

This is the Wikipedia explanation of the word berserker:
Quote:
Berserkers were Norse warriors who are reported in the Old Norse literature to have fought in a nearly uncontrollable, trance-like fury, a characteristic which later gave rise to the English word berserk.


Someone like that isn't going to stop what he's doing just because he's being attacked. Short of actually having his head cut off or something like that, there is very little anyone would be able to do to stop him.

If only they had something like razor-sharp boomerangs at that time...
if they did, they could've cut the guy's head off.
or something like that.

^^ It was powerful, but much more sad. When Theoden, Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli and the rest of the rohirrim ride out from the castle of Helms deep, the scene when Gandalf has just arrived, there's no more elves except Legolas alive anymore. So, all members of Haldir's army died. Realizing this makes me cry even more in that part..

Lets consider this... They had how many men on the top of the wall with bows and arrows? As well as spears as you mentioned.... in a matter of seconds they COULD have filled that guy with 50 arrows instead of JUST having Legolas shoot him....So YES they COULD have killed him.



However, to be fair, I am not %100 sure they realized exactly what was happening. Aragorn saw the path everyone had created for him and that was a red flag.... but they very likely might have not realized the seriousness of the situation.
