be careful of his passive, if you both swing at the same time he will still hit you and for berserker there goes 1/3 of your health. So wait to dodge/parry an attack, then hit him once to remove the passive. After that he will get melted, just be careful in case he gets it back. Gb can also break the passive. Just be ready for his charge once he gets down to 1 bar, as it insta kills all characters. Most shigoki try to go for it at that point, you just have to dodge back or to the side, then hit him once and he will die

As a Shugoki main, I can tell you that he's not hard to play against if you're fast enough. Don't initiate him with heavy attacks because he'll just eat those and hit you. You need to initiate with light attacks to get past his armor. Once it's down you can rush him, and if he runs out of stamina he can be easy bait against an unskilled player. The only problem with Berserker is that his entire kit relies on his chains. If you get parried you're rendered almost useless.

I may be biased because I main both berserker and shugoki, but i feel like berserker is one of the better counters to shugoki. Once you break shugoki's stance he takes extra damage; with the berserker's ability to chain fast light attacks, if you dodge and chain shugoki goes down fast.

@m0nk3y.exe how does Zerker chain fast light attacks if the only chain they have that uses light attacks has to be rotated between light and heavy attacks in order to maintain the chain?

This thread was last posted in the game's launch week, so I'm going to close this up. Please don't necro threads if at all possible.
