- Fast and furious
Berserkr are fleaudian and demonic fast troops. They are pretty efficient when fulfilling the same job as units with a Movement of 2. In close combat, they are mainly offensive, so most of the time many enemy units in their tile end up very badly hurt or completely defeated, just like the Berserkr themselves since they have poor defences.
The Berserkr’s real specialty is their ability to run around close combats while throwing axes at the enemy. They can inflict high amounts of damage if not taken care of quickly enough.
- Offensive Shooters: Shooting does not break Offensive Stances.
- Athletic: Fatigue Rate (Move) 50%.
- Berserk: Morale Sensitivity is halved when adopting an Offensive Stance.
With the majority of their actions related to the movement part of the game, Berserkr can be very annoying for an opponent who decides to let them run everywhere on the battlefield. Being able to deploy this unit cunningly can give the controlling player such an edge that its opponent will well remember that mistake.
One of the main aspects that make this unit so versatile is its ability to reposition easily. It can even go around close combats to reach the opponent's back lines.
