Gundyr's Halberd is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.

Halberd of Gundyr the Champion, received when he was charged with his duty.

This old cast-iron halberd has the power to break poise, and is said to never crumble, seeming to suggest that Gundyr was fated to eternal service from the beginning.

Skill: Champion's Charge
Hold spear at waist and charge at foe, and use momentum to transition into sweeping strong attack. 

Notes and Tips:

  • Cannot be Buffed or Infused. 
  • Upgraded with Titanite Scales.
  • The longest Halberd in the game when 2-handed.
  • The second strongest halberd behind Splitleaf Greatsword.
  • Despite the description saying it "has the power to break poise", its poise damage is no higher than any other Halberd.

      If you're really good (like me bwahaha), you can chain this mother*****er ad-Infinitum. It really is broken...surprisingly how not many people have exploited this. If you can't parry, you're *****ed against it...well, against me at least...

        I use Gundyr's on my strength build and it is better to be pure strength even if you stop at 120 or 125 it gets great damage. My build is currently at sl 116 with 50 strength and 20 dex which gives me an AR of 473 while one handed. Two handed puts you at a solid 494.

          Whats the best strength and dex stats to use on this weapon?

            this needs a buff to hyperarmor/poise dmg & maybe slight buff to scaling
            maybe nerf the WA a bit in exchange for that to make it viable w/o just repeating L2 combo
            it looks amazing & has so much potential but it's hard not to get frustrated by 2H attacks getting stunlocked by greatsword class 1H R1s

              I kinda wish they never removed it's poise damage. Because from a lore standpoint and the size, it makes sense. Would of been a good weapon to use against annoying Hyper Armor centric weapons. Oh well, DumbSoft does it again.

                "This old cast-iron halberd [...] is said to never crumble" 500 Durability? Could as well be 30 with the current system where weapons automatically repair themselves and wear down even slower than in ds1. The only way to break your weapon is to not know what to do in Deacons bossfight or when doing a no bonfire run.

                  surprisingly effective WA against the current meta nerds spamming L1 with the ringed greatswords :^) might be worth a try if you have trouble against those.

                    Be careful when using its WA, super easy to parry due to the many "attacks" in the animation that are parryable

                      Tip against wannabe parry lords: Dead angle the weapon art since it has god tier tracking. Do the charge but don't go straight, go to the right of the person and for the spin go behind them and it should hit them (spin can't be parried)
                      It's what I do to juke L2 spammers and then I use the full weapon art on wakeup for a nice kill.

                        I don't really have a problem with this weapon, except for the spinning attack on the WA. The hitbox on it is a bit broken from my experiences. I move out of the way of the charge, then dodge the spin, yet it still hits me nearly every time.

                          This weapon is my most favorite PvP weapon in the game. It has a variable moveset, decent AR, and it being a pure strength weapon it can have point put in other stats when using a build with this weapon.
