Basically, anything that came near a Berserker while in a trance-like fury was about to become hamburger meat!

One of the most famous and popular icons from the heathen Viking age is that of the berserker. The beserkers, referred to as "Odin's men" were Viking shock troops that were renown for their ferocity in battle. They are also associated with shamanism and would use various hallucinogenic plants, alcohol, and ritual practices to work themselves into a battle frenzy where they were reported by several historians to display feats of super human strength, and, reportedly, felt no pain. They would also not be able to distinguish friend from foe, killing indiscriminately.
Cú Chulainn is one of the most famous of all Celtic Irish mythological heroes. He rose to fame from his exceptional skills at the Irish sport of Hurling.

The berserkers were the most feared of all the Viking warriors. Known in the Norse poems as "Odin's men", they fought in battle with a rage unmatched by any warrior in history. They hacked through anyone that stood in front of them. Their blind fury did not distinguish friend from foe. They were there to kill. Period. In Norse mythology, Mjolnir was the war hammer of Thor, God of thunder, and was the most feared weapon in Norse mythology. Viking Hammer amulets were popular with the Vikings, and throughout their territories; including the British Isles. This original artwork depicts Odin, father of Thor, on the handle of a traditional Viking Hammer, and his beard twisted into Celtic knots that adorn the head of the hammer.
