Muton Berserker

A hulking monstrosity, Muton Berserkers are modified Mutons who are consumed by a constant seething rage and hatred for all things human. They are given very tough armor in order to survive focus fire that usually comes their way.

Instead of a gun these Mutons are given fist mounted blades that can tear even the toughest soldiers to shreds. Instead of reaction fire, Muton Berserkers will run (during your turn) after the last unit that shot them, ready to shear them up next turn. Kill them quickly, as an instant death at their hands is a looming occurrence for any soldiers that stand in their way. They do tend to run straight into ambushes though, keeping your squad on overwatch can severely weaken or even kill Berserkers as soon as they are within firing range. Laser weapons are often enough to kill Berserkers but you will need extremely tough armour (Titan Armor is enough to barely survive their blades) or Chitin Plating in order to survive surprise attacks from these titanic terrors.
