Berserk (EvilHack)

From NetHackWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

In EvilHack and Hack'EM, certain monsters can enter a berserk state. This property is governed by the M3_BERSERK flag, which is connected to the is_berserker pointer.


When a monster with the M3_BERSERK flag is at 13 of their maximum HP or lower, and they are not currently going berserk, they have a 115 chance of going berserk with each move. A berserk monster has a 13 chance of dealing increased damage for that round of attacks, but may hit any and adjacent monsters besides the one they target. A monster in a berserk state will continually pursue monsters that it is hostile towards, regardless of previous behavior: if the monster was scared prior to going berserk, it will become unscared, and it cannot be scared by magical means. A monster will exit its berserk state when its HP is restored to half of its current maximum or more.

The following monsters in each variant can go berserk - lists will vary between variants.
