Were Berzerkers of the ancient world equivalent to todays spec ops? What were the common weapons, such as rapier?

Pic partially related, it is a berzerker healer
>>
Berserkers did not have rapiers. They were drugged out Norsemen who broke out into a violent fervor during battle.
Berserkers were definitely not spec ops. They were normal fighters, just on shrooms.
Idk if this was b8 but it almost sounds autistic enough to be sincere.
>>
"Berserkers" did't exist. There were those who went berserk, but they didn't go into battle planning on doing it.
>>
>>28873170
this was brought up by the berzerker healer being able to take down a small army of mages by herself, but then thought of the historical basis of it

>>28873111
A berserker, literally bear chest or bear shirt, was a champion, usually part of an earl's retinue. There are no indications that they ever went berserk, there were no mushroom brews they took, and they didn't break from their formation to charge the enemy's ranks.

As for their weapons, typical Norse weaponry. Sword, shield, spear, and ax.

op here back on topic
the sleeping night guild would use berzerker up front then archer in the back. is this consitent with warfare in say ancient rome?
>>
>>28873111
Not in hell. They often fought by themselves with no coordination.

Janissaries, Immortals, Kunoichi and Mongol Horse Archers were the true ancient spec ops. They coordinated the efforts and small groups were able to decimate large forces.

Women didn't fight in ancient times

>>28873797
Not necessarily true. There are accounts of female warriors, but they are definitely the oddity. Once we get out of antiquity and into the latter half of the 1st millenium, you start getting more confirmed reports of females fighting. Mostly as ladies defending their holdings while their husbands are away. This is not unique to Europe, mind. This happened in Japan as well. I don't know Chinese history worth shit, but I'd bet you it happened there as well.

They fought a bunch of people who belonged in the special olympics, but that was about it.

I would say that in general the average female warrior wasn't as good as the average male. And there are some funny things that happened. In one case in Japan, a young woman was leading the defense of a castle. She ended up sallying out with the defenders, but was captured. She ended up living out the rest of the war in the other guy's castle in pretty much house arrest. A minor lord ended up falling in love with her while she was there, so following the war they got married and by all accounts had a fairly good life together.

Let's be honest here...there's not much else out there that's not either blatant pandering or marketed to the least common denominator. The budgets just aren't there for much else.

Anime is dead, you have to guarantee BD and merchandise sales with safe cliches to even warrant funding. Gone are the 80'd and 90's days of taking an idea to some coked out suit with more money than sense to get your show idea animated without a billion editors butchering your idea.

For those that thing that bezerkers were something you just did and didn't not refer to any group of people, i'd like to point out that Bezerkers were declared outlaws as a profession in 1015 in norway.

>>28874134
In Japan they were all Samurai in the social class and expected to be warriors, both to protect the home and ride in the man's place if he was deceased/unable. They had to be skilled archers like the men of the class, and trained with the naginata rather than yari, which was more optimal for them.

Berserkers were the equivalent of shock troops, or otherwise people high on meth.
