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.
  • Despite the description saying it "has the power to break poise", its poise damage is no higher than any other Halberd.
  • Champion's Charge Weapon Art spin attack causes knockdown.
  • Is a weapon with a huge outlier for durability, standing at a whopping 500 durability! This equals to about 5000 hits before breaking.
  • Among the longest Weapons:
  • Despite being called a halberd, it more closely resembles a bardiche.

      When I see people using this in PvP and there are ledges nearby, I deliberately jump off as they wind up the animation. That locks them in place and they all follow me to their doomn it's hilarious to watch. No matter how hard we try, no one can best gravity.

        Wait a minute...

        That's a bardiche, not a halberd!

        Thank you for reading my useless trivia nitpicking comment.

          Lmao why are folks so salty about this weapon. I've been hardswap gundyr'd before, and yea, it wrecks me pretty often, but it doesn't really make me all that mad. Seriously, just a game, y'all

            I got this Halberd on my second playthrough (NG+), after I got the ring. I think the weapon art is pretty good.

              Here, you´ll find: people crying about hardswaps, people crying about JeeNine, and people crying about not having the Gundyr kick. Saved you a read :)

                Gundyr's Halberd, Murky Hand Scythe, Pontiff Knight Curved Sword, Estus Cancelling.
                You will see countless copy pasted clones online running around with these above things. Same setup, no emotions (besides BM'ing after a fight of course), and private profiles usually. There must be a factory somewhere churning them out or something. Anyways, the best counter to finding one is hitting alt f4 and blocking them. They will always be back though... for another one will just be shat out into the wilds of DS3.

                  The single most important step towards PVP success for me was learning how hilariously easy it is to parry this WA

                  • The spin is possible to parry; not sure where that misinformation started. It's just that 90% of people that'd be standing by the time the spin happens are usually getting stunlocked by the charge, so it's rare to see.

                    • Anonymous

                      I use L2 time to time, but what I do a lot is use a three hit r1 and roll away tactic to make sure I can avoid stunlocks.

                      so a pro tip for this thing is don't spam L2 or your going to get backstabbed by some players, instead use the high poise breaking attacks like R1 to stun lock enemies and use L2 to close of distances with archers or mages. So doing this can make this weapon decent, but the main upside is its high durability and not champions charge. But at the end of the day, I love this weapon.

                        Is this hyperarmor 360 spinning 2h R2 good for counter backstab?
                        I always have a hard time to backstab everyone who're using this moveset

                          If you randomly pull this weapon out of ur @ss (hotswap) for a surprise WA attack in duels just know you are a joke and most decent players are probably rolling their eyes and not taking u seriously after that.

                            Amazing how all it takes to ruin a weapon for everyone is one supremely sweaty goober who sounds like a quacking duck.

                            • "ha ha ha i click L2 R2 Thanks for tongue host :D" - actual message I received after getting killed by someone who spammed the WA.

                              Is it my fault for relying on my dodge button to give me iFrames so I would be able to use those frames in an attempt to survive? Yes. Is this thing's spin hitbox annoying and broken as hell? Yes. Would I rather get killed by a Greatlance wake-up? A million times, yes.

                              Pardon my salt. Watching tryhards with ten of these in their inventory to hardswap has made me somewhat bitter.

                              • I was watching JeeNine's videos on Youtube, and the way he uses this is just amazing. I have a Wheel of Time cosplay Gamertag of Matt Cauthon and am going to use this with him.

                                  Missed opportunity From, the WA should've been the war cry Gundyr does which turns your kicks exactly like Gundyr's and heavy attack into the charge

                                        Perfect weapon art to punish the hell out of parries. You're probably wondering "Huh? No it isn't it is easily one of easiest to punish". But both are actually true in this case. The part of the weapon art that is parriable is the basic charge part of it, the spin is not. We can use this to our advantage in a lot of situations. When you charge at them, just quickly turn to the left and then quickly turn at them. The tracking on the spin is pretty ridiculous and it can infuriate players who are expecting an ezpz parry. Use this weapons poor reputation to your advantage. Half of the time they'll just stand still making hitting them with the 2nd part of the weapon art super easy. You're welcome/I'm sorry.

                                          i don't know how well this tip may work, but...
                                          if your opponent is trying to do the WA in a wakeup scenario, i think your best chance to avoid it is unlocking and rolling behind the charge.
                                          it's kinda ridiculous how great the tracking of this Weapon Art, specially compared to other Charge Weapon Arts lol

                                              Probably one of my favourite Weapons due to the fact that I love Halberds (technically a Bardiche) and I love Gundyr. Despite this weapons spammy nature, especially with its WA I still am gonna love it and whenever I run through the game I always struggle to choose between this or the Prisoners Chain, even if I’m not running a viable build. I do like the fact that at any point you can press parry and **** those guys who spam the WA.

                                                    Description is wrong, it does deal more poise damage than other halberds. Other halberds deal 20, this one does 30, which is the same as great axes.

                                                      So, i saw some streamers with like 5 or 6 of this in their inventories, silly question but they really go to ng+7 just for pvp purposes? Or is there like a tool to get all items fot pvp?

                                                      • The "has the power to break poise" statement may suggest, as i noticed in PvP, it can make people struggle even if they are using perseverance (and havent tested this ones but theres no reason ironflesh/body of rock would be different).
                                                        I kinda dislike this weapon, its almost a joke that they deleted poise as it was in ds1 and meanwhile added a weapon that makes you have infinite poise while using the weapon art, even if ur naked, deal massive damage and at the same time break the stance of anyone even with perseverance.

                                                              Its fun to use and quite strong, however easy to counter.
                                                              Sadly, i think it has one of the most fun WA in the game when using any strength weapon.
                                                              Wished the weapon had more advantages because it doesnt stay viable very long, as i would love to continue using it for the WA but simply wouldnt due to its severe disadvantages.

And Gundyr's also the first boss you fight in the game. So what if poise doesn't exist in DS3 because Gundyr just kinda smacked it with his halberd so hard that poise broke?

The moveset is pretty much identical and the only real differences are the WA and the Glaive's lighter weight (enough difference to carry a parrying tool). Even the stamina cost per attack seems identical.

                                                                                              I must be missing something.

Then point down for thinking they can get a parry and get so confident, lol.

                                                                                                    Just invaded some guy, he really liked his charge.
                                                                                                    Doesnt change the fact its the easiest parry in the game.
                                                                                                    After he suffered the loss of half his HP he thought: "He can parry, maybe its better to spam r1."
                                                                                                    And, as you probably can guess, he pulled the plug as my beautiful lightningpaper-buffed sword ripped trough his stomach.
