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.

      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

        Commonly found within the hands of someone wearing ruin armor with like a dozen other weapons they can swap to.

            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.

                    Oh god let’s all spam the weapon art and have us all look like retarded lawn mowers and better yet get parried because of the lack of skill with the pkcs you don’t have to worry about that and you will win

                        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.
