All locust enemies have a set life value. To kill them outright you need to do that much or more damage in a single attack. If you fail to kill an enemy in a single attack they then become wounded. Most locust have 1 healthy and 1 wounded state, the Berserker has 2 wounded states.

This means that if on your first damaging attack against the Berserker (which requires the Hammer of Dawn) you do less than 7 damage you place the '5' side of the wounded marker under the Berserker (even if you scored 6 damage on that first attack). If on your next attack you do 5+ damage (once the Berserker is wounded the Hammer of Dawn isn't required) you kill the Berserker, if not you flip the wounded marker to the '3' side.

And just to be clear, once it is on the 3 side, any attacks that only deal 1 or 2 Wounds to the Berzerker essentially have no effect.

So usually attacks on her are as follows:
- 1 damage? Oh, k, put her on the 5.
- 1 damage again??? Ok, put her on the 3.
- 1 damage, she's not dead!
- 1 damage GAHHH
- We're all bleeding out!!!

this is so true. I dealt 2 damage 4x in a row with the Hammer of Dawn, a grenade, and 2 overkill lancer shots. Each time I was in disbelief
