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 Weapon Art features good tracking and an effective followup for catching players using R2 following the charge.
  • The weapon's moveset is almost identical to Halberd-type weapons in Dark Souls 2.
  • Breaking the weapon does not grant another moveset.

      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.

      • poise break actually a thing?10 Sep 2016 23:48  

        I might be wrong on this but if poise has to do something with hyper armor then it should break hyper armor more easily right? Then that should explain why this thing seems to break my UGS hyper armor with one hit it could be heavy lag on my end but it seems to be the only weapon that does it consistently

        • Damage output concern!!09 Sep 2016 10:41  

          I like the weapons look, moveset and weapon art, but im concerned about the weapon damage output, i just got it yesterday and ill invest all my titanite scales to see if it inflicts good damage.

          • Parryable?05 Sep 2016 10:02  

            Can this weapons' charge art be parryed like Champion Gundyr's? If I am not mistaken I think I have seen players parry The Champion while he is using his charge, is it the same for Player Vs Player? Thank you.

            • useless weapon, + range explained30 Jul 2016 08:34  

              The durability is unnecessarily high, as it fills every time you rest. This makes the stat useless, as well as the already useless repair powder even more shamefully useless. Transposing it is useless, because giving up this useless weapon for an OP ring is what most smart people will do. The item description brags about how it breaks poise, which is useless, because poise itself is useless, and non existent.<br/>Also I did some research, and I figured out the broken range.<br/>The halberd itself has a smaller model to fit the player size, like almost every other transposable boss weapon. When the weedheads up in the poise department at Fromsoftware were converting it, they made the physical weapon smaller but not the range, thus meaning that the weapon has the same hitbox as the one that gundyr uses.

              • Another devastating halberd24 Jul 2016 04:13  

                R1 L2 R2 may be a fake combo(maybe it is true),but it do wreck the enemy.The damage is insane,with a standard glaiveR1,easily outrange other players,and charge them when they are not ready for parry.

                • Rare type of weapon01 Jun 2016 14:41  

                  In dark souls universe the weapons are either fun or useful. This one is both extremely fun to play and very strong. A few of ds weapons hit this category.<br/>I also consider Gundyr's an advanced pvp weapons, because of it's variety in a playstyle. And halberd class is one of the strongest if not the strongest in the whole game. <br/>Weapon Skill is amazing and can be made unparryable: just unlock the opponent, charge a bit to a side and then lock back and hit him with combo finish. This move will not only be surprising, but also devastating, cos the finish damage is insane.

                  • Now that we know how poise works...16 May 2016 17:39  

                    This weapon is even better. While this weapon doesn't have the spin to win combos of the BKH, it has the ability to break more poise: IE reduce both roll length and the number of I-frames you get outta rolling. This means that two R1 hits while devastate your ability to avoid subsequent attacks, making both the weapon art and the Two hand R2 spin to win land even more consistently.

                      The weapon is good it's in no way at all op and It is easily countered. Just because a weapon is powerful doesn't make it OP. It's an optional boss weapon near the end of the game. It should be good
