Main article: Weapon Types

Halberds are a type of weapon in Dark Souls.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Halberds offer a mixture of the spears' range and thrusting attacks, along with a bladed edge similar to an axe for attacks that deal Regular or Slash damage. Because of the increased weight at the end of the weapon, however, the attacks are not quite as precise as they are with a Spear, and each swing tends to take one slightly off balance. Most of the spears' quick strikes are lost too, in favor of slower, but slightly more powerful attacks. The ability to use a variety of attack types at range, however, can be a very useful thing, as it enables one to be effective against most types of enemies.

All halberds besides the Scythe, Great Scythe, and Lifehunt Scythe deal Thrust damage on their weak attacks and are therefore eligible for counter attack bonuses.
