Berserker Weapons are weapons used by the Berserker Tribe during the series.


Berserker weapons are seen throughout the Dragons: Defenders of Berk TV series, when Dagur the Deranged, young chief of the Berserker Tribe, attacks the Dragon Riders and Berk. Many Berserker soldiers and sailors wield and operate the weaponry.

Berserker weaponry is seen again in both Dragons: Race to the Edge, Season 5 and Season 6 when episodes take place on Berserker Island. In "Something Rotten on Berserker Island", stationary catapults are seen, as well as various hand-held weapons of the soldiers. The catapults are again seen - in use - in "King of Dragons, Part 2".

List of Weapons


The crossbows are the main weapon the Berserkers use, mostly due to the fact that it id Dagur the Deranged weapon of choice during Dragons: Defenders of Berk and he is their chief.


One of the main weapons are the catapults, used to launch boulders towards dragons. Large catapults are stationed around Berserker Island on sea stacks and cliffs. The catapults can fling large boulders, as well as flammable objects.


As told by Stoick and seen in "A View to a Skrill, Part 2", the Berserkers can actually control a Skrill into shooting lighting at command. Though the Berserker Tribe does not have any captive Skrills at the start of the TV series, historically Berserkers used to subdue and tame Skrills by simply entrancing them with a metal dagger, as told by Viggo Grimborn in "Triple Cross".


The Berserkers also use a type of spear that appears to have a blade split into two parts at the end. Hiccup is also seen using it to attract lightning in the episode, "When Lightning Strikes". This type of two-pronged spear is seen again in "Something Rotten on Berserker Island". However, Berserker soldiers are also seen with simpler single-pointed spears as well.


Swords are also occasionally seen used by the soldiers in the background. They are simple broad swords with no decoration.
