Oh yeah, don't get me wrong, I love the berserker class. I have 2 main characters, 1 is the commando (mainly for spider farming, but also because he's AWESOME once leveled up to 50 and decked out with some red runes) but the other is my zerker which is definitely the funnest to use. They can just do some much damage, especially when you start throwing ruiners around.
1500 drops still will take probably around a couple hours or so (maybe more) just doing the spider farming, but that's not too far away. If there's anything I might be able to help out with in game (I might have some commando weapons, but I don't know how low a level they are) just holler.
