The well known Viking berserker warriors were the most feared off all, believed to used herbal type drugs such as anmirifta to enhance their mood for battle, the eager berserker warriors are believed to have stood here biting their shields and swords in anticipation of the forthcoming battle and violence.
It’s said that there existed a Viking fighting style called “berserker,” which required warriors to use spiritual magic and work themselves into trancelike frenzies, making them impervious to injury. The Bersekers, as they’re now known, also ignored all common battlefield tactics of the day, choosing instead to base their strategy on brute strength, which usually ended favorably for them.
In battle, the berserkers were subject to fits of frenzy. They would howl like wild beasts, foamed at the mouth, and gnawed the iron rim of their shields. According to belief, during these fits they were immune to steel and fire, and made great havoc in the ranks of the enemy. When the fever abated they were weak and tame. Accounts can be found in the sagas
