so pretty simple question . Are Power Fists or Power weapons mor effective on Khorne bezerker Skull Champs? I have heard both ways and i just want a clear answer from a bunch of people all in one place I run into this topic a lot in other threads
mostly it boils down to this
-the sheer power of the fist-
-the ability to take advantage of the furious charge initiative bonus-
so which is better?

Berserkers have enough attacks at S5, I5 that taking the PW won't really be needed. They will generally be killy enough on the charge that taking a PF is more for safety than killyness. Getting your zerkers charged by a dred will be the end of them without the PF. Sure they have krak, but 1 krak each hitting on 6 glancing on 6 is not a good way to take down a dred.

All my Zerker squads have fists, and I would never take a PW on them. I would take a fist, or leave the champ bare.
sorry, but walkers havea weapon skill, meaning that you will hit normally, not on 6's like normal vehicles. i would go for a fist because berzerkers get an insane amount of attacks. where an SM champ would get 3 attacks on the charge, a skull champ gets 4, hitting on 3's against most normal infantry. the fist is highly beneficial for pulping ICs and big stuff, like monstrous creatures.
