Berserker is one of the two available skill trees for the Hatchet Mastery in New World. Berserker abilities mainly focus on boosting the player's melee attacks and increases both their speed and the player's. Hatchets mainly benefit from Strength, but Dexterity also contributes although on a secondary level.
