Perk Breakdown[edit | edit source]

  • Activates when attempting to use the Pickaxe Power Attack while it is on cooldown.
  • Increases the damage of regular Pickaxe strikes by 8 while active.
    • This increase does not provide any real benefit, as it will not reduce the amount of strikes needed to kill most creatures.
    • This does not apply to Power Attacks, only regular swings
  • Pickaxe Power Attack cooldown divided by 20
    • With the default 30 second cooldown this allows the Power Attack to recharge in 1.5 seconds
    • With the Better Weight Balance mod 20 second cooldown, Power Attack recharges in 1 second

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Highly effective against enemies with natural weaknesses to Melee damage, such as Glyphid Oppressors or Mactera Spawn
  • Counting the 2 Power Attacks needed to activate Berzerker, it is possible to chain up to 8 Power Attacks in one use of the perk.
  • Remember that you're highly vulnerable to damage when engaging enemies at point blank range. Aggressive use of the perk is not recommended unless you have a clear advantage
