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.


Taught by the mightiest of lumberjacks, Berg emerged from the great boreal forests of Canada with a log of Mahogany in one hand and raw power in the other. He left Yellowknife for a warmer job in Southeast Asia to find a tropical paradise. He'd soon find out that chopping through zombies was a perfect use of his skills. The Lumbermancer never rests.
— Berg's lore

Berg wants to be in mid to close range, controlling and pushing enemies around. Using all his abilities quickly will keep enemies at a preferred distance allowing both Berg and his allies to gain an upper hand in the battlefield.


Berg is a middle aged man with short brown hair and large amounts of stubble. He wears an unbuttoned red checkered button up shirt, a white t-shirt with a yellow smiley face printed on the front, blue cargo jeans held by a grey belt, and yellow boots. He also wears brown gloves.
