Rule quote:

'A Berserker may move up to seven (7) squares in any direction or
combination of directions, and must attack at the end of the move; that
is, must end the move in a space occupied by an opposing piece. 

A Berserker may not: 
- pass through/over occupied squares, 
- end a move in an unoccupied square, 
- end in a square occupied by a friendly piece, or 
- attack the opposing king.'

First, all the intermediate squares in the Berserker move must be
unoccupied, so there may not be a clear path less than eight squares

Second, a Berserker may not attack the opposing King, so it doesn't
matter anyway.
