Intimidate is an ability used by both Mutons and Berserkers in XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

Reacts unpredictably when wounded, provoking panic in enemies.

– In-Game Description, XCOM: Enemy Unknown


Typical behavior includes roaring or chest thumping, which forces the soldier who wounded the alien to pass a Will test. Failing the Will test will cause the soldier to panic and take a random action: Hunkering down, moving to a nearby location, or firing at any target in range (which can potentially lead to the soldier shooting one of his allies, or shooting the alien in question again).
