Cutting and stabbing weapons are a Berserker's first choice. Swords, metal claws and lightsabers are typical tools of the trade. Not being burdened by cumbersome weapons or ammunition, a Berserker is more agile than a heavily armed runner an advantage which he puts to good use in combat situations. Anyone underestimating a Berserker might well find himself floored and resting in pieces in no time at all. Gentanks and Private Eyes most commonly use their physical prowess for this job.
