The Gargoyle's Halberd is a halberd-type weapon in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Halberd of the gargoyle guarding the Bell of Awakening in the Undead Church.
Perfectly standard bronze halberd without any special power.

Availability[]

This weapon is commonly dropped by the Bell Gargoyles boss in the Undead Parish and the non-respawning enemies in Anor Londo. The final gargoyle in Anor Londo always drops its halberd as a fail-safe if the player wasn’t lucky enough to have a previous gargoyle drop it, since none of the gargoyles respawn.

This weapon can be farmed by killing one of the Gargoyle bosses at the Undead Parish. If it doesn't drop it, quit and reload to reset the boss fight; repeat until you have obtained the number of halberds desired.

Characteristics[]

The Gargoyle's Halberd has slightly higher base damage than a regular Halberd but slightly lower scaling, making both weapons about equally damaging. However, this high base damage and low scaling makes the Gargoyle’s Halberd ideal for elemental upgrade paths.

The Gargoyle's Halberd has a different moveset than the regular Halberd: the weak attack is a vertical chop followed by a swing. This can make certain foes easier to hit, but is harder to use in confined spaces.

Despite its claim to be perfectly standard with no special power, the Gargoyle’s Halberd increases base resistance to Poison, Toxic and Bleed by 25%. As with other equipment that increase status resistances, equipping it looks like it creates a small build-up of Poison, Toxic and Bleed, but this is not the case; see Buildup for an explanation of this effect.
