Berserkers are the Chuck Norris type characters of this game. They have very high health but not that much armor, but what do you expect? They fight shirtless. These lunatics shine in melee fights, with a very powerful axe and pretty high speed, they can dominate battlefield. Although they have no shield or ranged weapons, their sword and axe combo usually makes archers just a good dinner for them. Nobody likes raging berserker, specially if you are on the opposite team. Berserkers battle cry is usually the last thing you hear if you are nearby. They are also sometimes referred to as "doggies".

Probably a distant ancestor of Chuck Norris, they have exceptional health, but because of their huge muscles are unable to wear either shirts or armor. If you're not on their side, their howling battle-cries will be the last thing you hear.

Seeing it here and now I feel that it needs a few semi-colons, but it flows better. It retains and plays up the Chuck Norris reference, shows their toughness instead of mentioning their health statistic; provides a manly reason for their power, shirtlessness, and lack of armor; plays up their weapons, and retains the character-building terms "howling" and "lunatic" while adding new terms such as "furiously "butcher" and "bite-size".
Each of your additions undermines your apparent intentions. The reference to Chuck Norris was not to draw attention to the man you mention in your post, but rather to an idea of manliness that the Berserker most certainly embodies. The sort of manliness that could stand up to a bullet and win. It's also supposed to be funny.
Audie Murphy... Killed Nazis. The Berserker hasn't killed a Nazi in his life, and the reference isn't funny. If the data gathered by Google is anything to go by, relatively few people even know who Audie Murphy is, so the reference would be completely lost on most people.
The "(or just a show of manliness)" bit interferes because if it's not a show of manliness, his bare-chestedness is simply pure manliness and the line is redundant, but if it were just a show of manliness, then it's merely a show and not an effect of manliness, which makes the Berserker seem less manly.
Finally, "Now, we all know Lone Wolves are dangerous, but ever dare facing a pack of wolves?" is not only slightly sub-par English, but it diminishes the manliness of the Berserker as a character, instead drawing attention to the characteristics of a group and contributes nothing to the description of the Berserker as a character or as a class. Its implications are easy enough to figure out with the information already provided, it breaks convention, and sticks out.
It's not that every single piece of medium made nowadays references a tough guy from the 1980s' pop culture in both subtile or less subtile ways. Maybe it's just me, though.

something to be more "historically accurate"
Chuck Norris became an internet meme that symbolizes manliness.
Using him on the wiki page is a pop-culture nod that gets the point across way better than someone nobody's heard of, regardless of historical accuracy.
