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:

      I remember people voting me down to hell when I stated it is a str weapon in summer 2016. What happened? Came to your senses?

        Honestly, the damage is not something you'll be impressed with if you're running a STR build, but the range, speed and moveset more than make up for it. It's like your enemy will ask to get sprint-chopped

          "Among the longest weapons". Yeah...I'm afraid I lost count of the amount of times I completely misjudged the range of this halberd, leading to one horrible death after another.

            Counters include any hyperarmor weapons, parrying, a decent shield, unfaltering prayer, quickstep, etc. For quick results, just equip a shield and block, watch the chip damage and laugh.

              I believe the notes to be wrong about poise damage for this weapon. Normal Halberds do 20 poise damage while this one does a massive 30 on the same tier as greataxes and greatshields

                  If you're pondering if you should spend the boss soul on this weapon, the regular Glaive available from Greirat does ever so slightly better damage with a Sharp infusion when putting points in dex than this will on a similar investment in strength. 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.

                    The durability is a huge outlier compared to the rest of the weapons. Is it like the santeir' s spear when it breaks?

                        Sees Gundyr using it gracefully
                        Decides to cosplay
                        One hands it for full experience
                        Staggers midswing with a bare hand punch
                        Duel welds it and has a hyper armor of a tooth pick
                        Gets astonished by epic design logic while losing all immersion ...
                        Moves on

                          People are saying the damage is good on this weapon, but 502 at 40/40 ? That's actually quite horrible. BKS does way more damage, swings faster and requires less stamina.

                          I must be missing something.

                            Retardedly OP: monstrous damage, range, and even more phantom range, WA has godlike, instantenous tracking and can be made unparriable just by freeaiming.

                              When people try to parry the weapon art it's so funny because if you free-aim, you could skew and avoud the parry and mess em up. Then point down for thinking they can get a parry and get so confident, lol.
