|“||Charge in a straight line through cover to unleash a devastating melee attack.||”|
– In-Game Description, XCOM: Enemy Unknown
Though rarely used, this ability grants the Berserker the capability to charge through destructible cover elements (like walls) to attack its target(s).
If a player Mind Controls a Berserker or is using one in multiplayer, this ability can be used to simultaneously attack an enemy and destroy their cover. Should the enemy survive the attack's massive damage, the Berserker will be in prime position for a follow up a melee attack on the next turn. Also can be used for an effective surprise attack through a wall if used in combination with a spotter with Ghost Armor, Mimetic Skin or Bioelectric Skin.
It can only target cover and destructible debris, and cannot be used to target units. They simply take damage from the area of effect shown.
