Default Blood for the Blood God

Reading the Khorne berzerker entry in the chaos index, it gives them the rule in the thread title and says simply that they can fight twice in each fight phase. Would it be right to guess that this means you can choose them at two different points over the course of the fight phase or would you conduct both of their rounds of attacks in the same sequence?

If the former, it means my opponent can fight the unit before it gets to fight a second time, possibly reducing its damage the second time. If the latter, it effectively simply doubles their attacks. Which would be the best interpretation of that rule? I think the former is more likely but I want to hear other opinions.

I think the first interpretation is more likely correct. You choose the berzerkers to fight when their turn becomes available, and then your opponent chooses their unit, and then you are able to choose the berzerkers again or come back to them at a later point in the fight phase.

I am curious as to what happens when they charge. Since charging units always strike first, do they exercise both of their fight rounds before the later sequences? Or do they have one sequence first for charging, with the ability to fight a second time later after all charges have been resolved?

They definitely activate twice at different points. When they charge they fight first twice but your opponent can interrupt using CPs.
