Berg is one of the four main characters of Dead Island: Epidemic.

In-game Berg can be seen in three forms. Survivor, Armored and Mutated. Each form has different abilities and strategy.


As the Epidemic went on, Berg started to think he'd never get to don hockey gear again. Then Isys set him up with some reinforced armor and he could stomp into battle better than ever before.
— Armored Berg's lore

Armored Berg's main strength lie in dishing out a good amount of melee damage and chasing down enemies.


Berg is a middle aged man with short brown hair and large amounts of stubble. His face is completely covered with a black skull mask. He wears the same button up he wears in his Survivor form, but wears a black t-shirt instead of white. He wears orange cargo pants with the same boots as his Survivor form. He also has two pieces of concrete with three rebar attached to his shoulders, which are secured with two belts crossing his chest, with the left strap having three cylinders attached to it. On his biceps and knees, he has hockey guards on. He wears one of his gloves from his Survivor form on his left arm, and has a piece of green fabric wrapped around his right arm secured with white packing tape. Underneath the shoulder straps, he has green body armor on over the shirt.
