Berserker in Bravely Default 2 is for players who like to swing around axes while doing a lot of damage. However, the raw damage output of Berserker is balanced by its lack of speed. Due to this, players can also try it as a Sub-Job with something that’s got decent speed. In order to unlock the job, players need to defeat Prince Castor. In this Bravely Default 2 guide, we’ve detailed everything there’s to know about the Berserker job, its abilities, speciality, proficiencies, and best sub-jobs for it.


Bravely Default 2 Berserker Job

The job is perfect for players who just want to go all out with the amount of damage that they deal – both to single target and groups. Berserker in Bravely Default 2 is sort of a glass cannon. While its abilities deal an incredible amount of damage, they sometimes come at the cost of decreased HP and defenses. Therefore, players who opt for Berserker should be careful with their tactics. First of all, let’s take a look at its abilities:

Crescent Moon 1 BP Land a physical attack on all nearby targets.
Vent Fury 18 MP It allows players to turn Berserk for the next 3 turns. During these 3 turns, physical damage is increased by +50%, physical defense is decreased by -30%, and only ‘Attack’ command is useable.
Double Damage 55 MP It allows players to hit a target twice.
Water Damage 32 MP It lets players deal water damage to targets.
Bloody-Minded 1 slot Players are guaranteed physical attacks but also take 20% of the damage dealt.
Free for All 1 slot While in the Berserk state, players are able to use abilities from the Main Job or the Sub-Job without any cost.
Shell Spirit 16 MP It damages the target and decreases their physical defense by 5% for 4 turns. The effect caps at 35%.
Scale Strip 16 MP It damages the target and decreases their magical defense by 5% for 4 turns. The effect caps at 35%.
Unshakeable Will 1 slot Players are immune to sleep, paralysis, fear, berserk, confusion, freeze, stop, and charm.
Level Slash 30 HP Attack all the nearby targets.
Indiscriminate Rage 1 slot Normal attacks target all full power enemies but at the cost of the next turn coming in late.
Amped Strike 120 MP Deals a massive amount of damage to a single target.
Flood Damage 80 MP Land a powerful water-based attack.
Axe Lore 1 slot Increases the aptitude of Axes to ‘S’.
Death’s Door 1 slot Land a powerful blow that deals more damage if the HP of the player is low.

Special Abilities and Specialities

When it comes to its Speciality, it lets Berserker land a powerful physical attack on all nearby enemies while also gaining +15% Physical Defense and +15% Accuracy. As for its Special Abilities, they let it completely ignore an enemy’s default and a +50% chance of regaining control of the character while it’s berserk.

Lastly, coming to Sub-Jobs, Vanguard is a decent choice. With the help of Vanguard’s support abilities, players will be able to enjoy the damage boosts provided by Berserker without any negative effects. Another decent option that players can go for is Monk.
