Horde - how to kill Berserker

    • Level   2

    Anyone here have any tips on how to kill the Berserker?

    It's incredibly hard!

    Good question me & some randoms got to wave 20 and ended up giving up after a number of tries cause the berserkers would F us up. HOD worked on Gears1 :) but I did look and didn't find one - but I did notice the Flamer Thrower slowed her down but that was it.

    I have a very strict gun control policy if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.

    While using the flame thrower on the berserker you can then get your mates to use standard weapons as the flame thrower removes the shield the berserker seems to have that stops you shooting bullets.

    Thats the tactic me & a mate used, we killed one that way but the 2nd & 3rd berserkers that came at the same time soon destroyed us.

    it seems to do more damage if you shoot in the back but takes a *** load of bullets and tag her on back thats how i kill her but that was on casual .

    Flamethrowers spawn throughout the map when the Berserkers spawn. Flamethrowers are key. Flame them as much as possible while teammates bombard them with bullets. My friends and I finally beat the 50th wave of Horde using this tactic. Good thing it only took us 4 hrs and 40 min... haha Good Luck!

    Yeah the flamer is the only way, I snuck around the map using the sawn off shotgun to take out all the grinders and kantus first, then my friends and I took turns to burn him and shoot him, takes a ridiculously long time, but rather rewarding, although and unspectacular death.

    boom shots help as well as anything that explodes

    Yup, flamethrowers or hammer of dawn if it's on the level. Your HUD will show you the location of a flamer whenever a Berserker pops up. You gotta torch it to make it vulnerable, then have someone take it down. Preferably with a turret or something that blows up.

    What ups if anyone is checking this forum like i did, i found the answer but thanks to some of you guys tellin me they are weak against fire, i killed one bymyself and it only takes a lil time actually. If u have a partner to play with someone with a scorcher would be good but if ur solo dolo or even wit a partner its good to throw a incenderairy grenade to burn them up and then riddle them with bullets. i just did it while on this page and it works. Good Luck and see ya'll around. :D

    Flame thrower and incendiary grenades also work great! I am going to try getting one of my friends to use the falmethrower and see if I can tag the beserker with a grenade. Anyone try this yet?

    get a flamethrower say "Flame On" burn her

    call in some friends have them shoot her and you do a lot of work. turrets and silver backs do wonders while she's a blaze and tag her with frags too.

    did this at wave 40 and we went Ham

    i may get beat but that don't mean i aint sweet

    Make sure your cross hair turns red when you hit him, when it is white you are doing no damage!

    For the lambent Berserker, you hit it in the middle of its chest just as its about to run when his rib cage like thing opens and you crosshair turns red!

    I prefer playing on Sandbar, that way I know where the Hammer of Dawn and Scorchers will be, Get someone to unload with the scorcher on him, this will weaken him allowing him to take damage from regular weapons fire.

     

    Perform this same tactic with the Hammer of Dawn if a Scorcher isnt available.

    Grab a flamethrower or two, light it up (within range obviously), and shoot the berserker during the point where it is being flamed. The tough skin of the berserker weakens under fire and standard weapons will have greater effect only during that time. Otherwise shooting it outright would be waste of ammo.

    As numerous people have stated, use the flamethrower. It's possible to kill them without one, but it takes a hell of a long time and more bullets than you can count.
