When making a full attack (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/combat/actionsInCombat.htm#fullAttack), a dragonic berzerker uses his full base attack bonus with his bite attack but takes a -5 penalty on claw attacks. The Multiattack (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/monsterFeats.htm#multiattack) feat reduces this penalty to only -2.

At 3rd level, a dragonic berzerker gains a minor breath weapon (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/specialAbilities.htm#breathWeapon). The type and shape depend on the dragon variety whose heritage he enjoys (see below).

Dragon Form (Su): Whenever Dragonic Berzerker enters a rage or frenzy, he can choose to assume young dragon form(similar to the polymorph (http://dndtools.eu/spells/players-handbook-v35--6/polymorph--2854/)spell). He must remain in young dragon form until the end of his rage or frenzy. When his rage or frenzy ends, the Dragon warrior immediately returns to his own form. The number of times a Dragon warrior can assume Dragon formis the number of times per day he enters a rage or frenzy.The bear warrior retains the normal +2 bonus on Will saves and —2 penalty to Armor Class while raging. As normal for polymorph (http://dndtools.eu/spells/players-handbook-v35--6/polymorph--2854/), the Dragon warrior gains the dragon form's physical qualities (including size, movement, natural armor bonus, natural weapons - exept breath, space, and reach), . The transformation lasts for the duration of the rage or frenzy.Unlike with the polymorph spell, a Dragon Warrior doesn't gain the dragon's Strength, Dexterity, and Constitution scores when he takes bear form, nor does he regain any hit points when he transforms. However, his current hit points increase due to his new Constitution, as normal for a rage ability.
Dragon incarnate: a dragonic berzerker may choose to use all dragonic berzerker abilities exept dragon form when not in a rage.
