    Event Requirements:
    Get it for 150 Sour Candies from the Sour Candy Market within !event. Only during the Halloween 2017, 2018 and 2019 events. Obtain it from the Bitter Chocolate Box for 15 Cupid Tokens, letting you get the buff at random from the list of buffs you don't yet have.

    <✖ VS>
    (Command: sm_berserk)


    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • The Berserk Buff, when activated can be a great way to do some DPS on a tank and bring its health down, especially if some of your other buffs that give attack bonuses are currently active. Using the buff effectively with time can help you out in the long run.
    • When piercing immunities with any weapon, it means that you will be able to use anything at your disposal to damage the tank, but it won't be affected by attack bonuses.
