Berserker as Compared SPECIFICALLY to Behemoth

Not to play into the circle-jerking of “all Titans are just different colors of Striker,” but allow me to compare Berserker to Behemoth in particular. Both subclasses have lunge melees. Both subclasses supercharge their melee for light attacks within the super. Both subclasses prevent enemy movement (suspend/freeze) as a gap-closer for the melee/super. Both subclasses have long range/projectile heavy attacks in the super that prevent enemy movement (suspend/freeze). Both subclasses have multiple mobility options… Is this not a bit much? Like, writing off Berserker as green Striker may be a bit disingenuous, but it being green Behemoth… is rather convincing. Simply unfortunate. Hopefully the aspects shake things up enough to differentiate them over time.

One is an instant lunge towards enemies and the other is a press release melee that doubles as a movement tool. Berserker also has three charges and applies sever with the melee. Glacial quake also doesn’t have a longe ranged attack, lmao.

  • Literally everybody has similar utility if you want to really get into the semantics. It’s all about how it plays and depending on how Berserker goes it might have more of a focus on melee, hopefully. Since that’s just not really a thing in the other classes at the end of the day. The closest it gets is Sunbreakers functionally speaking.

    • I think if they just gave Berserker another item like the Hammer of Sol, Sentinel Shield etc. it would feel more unique and still be in touch with the class identity. I know they have those two green machete things but they don’t really do much beyond “SMASH”.
