For the Dark Souls II variant, see Halberd (Dark Souls II).

The Red Hilted Halberd is a halberd in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Long-hilted weapon mixing spear and axe. The red-hilted halberd is associated with clerics.
Can be thrust like a spear or swept sideways like an axe, making it a versatile weapon effective against multiple foes.
Skill: Perseverance
Assume an unfaltering stance of prayer to temporarily boost poise. Damage reduced while activated.

Availability[]

Found in the Undead Settlement's sewers. The Grave Key is required to unlock the gate in the sewage system that gives access to this area. It is found at the center of the room where the player is attacked by Skeletons for the first time.

Characteristics[]

A favorite in PvP, the Red Hilted Halberd can be a very strong polearm in the right hands.

Utilizing the thrusting halberd moveset, the Red Hilted Halberd is generally incapable of taking advantage of Hyper Armor except when performing a two-handed strong attack, which has a long wind-up and leaves the wielder wide open if it misses. Compared to the normal Halberd, it performs better with physical infusions but is weaker than its cousin when it comes to elemental infusions.

What makes this weapon useful, however, is that it is the only halberd in the game with Perseverance, which grants the wielder passive Poise while also reducing any incoming damage. This means that unlike most other halberds, the Red Hilted Halberd has an option to stand its ground and fight enemies head-on if they manage to get inside of the weapon's reach.
