Halberds are a type of Weapon in Elden Ring. Halberds strike a balance between moderate damage and long reach, combining straight thrusting attacks and wide swinging strikes. 

Halberds can be modified by a number of Ashes of War to change their Skills or Damage Type, so play around with them and see what you like as you acquire more.

      The best weapon class, by FAR
      - Good poise damage
      - Reasonable weight
      - The best ones are easily obtainable early in the game (Commander's Standard, Golden Halberd, Dragon Halberd) from cheesable bosses.
      - Excellent range. Only the Pike is longer than the Commander's Standard (Fallingstar beast jaw ties it, but moveset is lacking).
      - Stabbing moveset halberds (Commander's Standard, Dragon Halberd, Halberd) are very good with Spear talisman
      - No bosses (except Crystalians before you poise break them) strongly resist Standard damage, and you get Pierce damage as well (the glaives do Slash instead of Standard, which is only a problem against Borealis)
      - Moveset is extremely good on horseback.. The charged R2 hits multiple times and launches enemies into the air
      - Very effective for two handing, shield, or power stance
      - Malenia gets staggered out of attacks by a single thrust, and you have enough range to interrupt her without getting hit.

        Hot take but...

        I don't like running attacks generally in this game since there's barely any commitment to any of them and most opponents will pull out a halberd, thrusting sword, katana or whatever when they are losing a fight to just spam running attacks.
        They do this since the normal attacks are slower than the running attacks and the running attacks has way too fast recovery and even if it is a heavy running attack. Running attacks also has enormous phantom range issues. Another stupid thing is people who uses Commander's Standard, Dragon Halberd, Banished Knight or Halberd have an excellent thrusting moveset for defensive play and a quick heavy attack that perfectly works to roll-catch people who tries to roll into you.
        Despite this information most of these halberds are used for a running light attack since they are easier to roll catch with for the unexperienced player.

        The same information like the last could be applied to the weapon "Great Epeé" which I never see anyone use outside of running heavy attack. It can easily use a heavy attack for punishing people who rolls into you. But that is another topic for another day.

        But the absolute worst part of halberds running attacks are the fact they are thrust based attacks. You cannot poise through them because of the poise damage they inflict and if you trade with them you're most likely going to do more damage to you due to the thrust damage.
        Which is the most broken damage type in Elden Ring outside of Poison/rot/sleep/madness and frost/blood where frost is worse than hemorrhage because it weakens your defense even if it never hit you which will make your defense weaker towards the next attack. Because thrusting damage can be enhanced to such high amount of damage that you wont survive a single hit. Sorry, getting side tracked...

        Point is running attacks needs more punishment for the lack of commitment they have right now and I don't have the perfect solution. Maybe give us a tripping animation so we can make the fools fall to the ground and lose all their stamina for spamming these attacks or give guard counters the ability to be like a parry towards running attacks so shields/bigger weapons can be more viable.

        Anyways, that's all I had to say and thanks for reading and replying below : )

          it would be cool if they nerf the running r1 a bit, 95 % of people using these weapons only use that attack, fast as a jab, longer reach than a spear, high damage, very high poise damage and quick recovery, super hard to punish... on top of that i cant seem to parry this attack, ive parried most of the parriable attacks in the game but i cant get this one right

            People meme about the running attack, but the powerstance jumping attack for these weapons is exceptional in all categories as well.

              honestly i think everyone would use these if they didn't have the moveset of a sharp stick and the moveset of one of the most versatile weapons in history

                I’ve done so much PvP at base level 9 vagabond using only halberd and longsword offhand. During the first few months, overleveled phantoms would literally hit me once and I’d be dead (RoB, Moonveil, etc, all the broken sh*t) but I can say, this made me a monster at PvP. I’ve sent so many goofy coward hosts & over leveled phantoms straight to Davy Jone’s fu*cking locker using halberd running R1 R1 rollcatch.

                To dodge this skillful combo, roll left diagonally thru the halberd.

                  I’ve spent a year playing pvp, mostly halberd. But I’m just now experimenting with off meta weapons like mace or sword+board. And my God halberd/epee poke spam is actually a problem. I keep getting stabbed by people’s shoulder twice in a row. It’s not even a roll catch, it’s hitting me before I can roll from the last ghost range poke. I’m standing still and the guys are missing in circles around me... but each miss still connects. The biggest problem is the recovery, if you punish a missed halberd joust, you already got hit by the next halberd joust. Not a problem if you got a halberd or epee but it’s very oppressive when using off meta weaponry. It should have a really good joust, but it shouldn’t be a spammable joust with no commitment.

                    I gave my Redmane character a Halberd w Flaming Strike and an off-hand Crystal Sword when I was starting the game, because I thought it was cool and on point thematically for what the Redmanes are all about. People never pay attention to the more historically grounded weapons like halberds when fancy katanas and surfboard-sized slabs of rock swung around like a Shonen character exist, after all, right? I wonder a lot, how many of the folx I invaded trying to be friendly and show them around Caelid just thought I was a meta monkey there to ruin their day...

                      Coming from a longtime halberd enjoyer, I hate the buffs From gave them in this game. The running R1 slam from DS1/DS3 was both cool looking and effective but not OP. Now I cringe in guilt runpoking someone like some kind of DS3 katana user. Also removing the sweetspot completely destroys the skill curve and satisfaction of the weapon class. Earning a clean hit with proper spacing felt GOOD

                        halberd range is completely stupid, it doesnt depend on the size of the weapon, but where your character decides to hold the damn thing.

                          Halberds are probably the most accessible weapon class to people who are starting to pvp, theres some variety in the moveset with wide arcs, downwards slashes, and poking attacks.

                                    for those wondering, normal halberd has *slightly* better strength scaling than Banished, and vice versa with dexterity, making base halberd better for strength based builds, while banished is better for quality/dex.
                                    P.S. also keep in mind weapon length.

                                      I think some Halberd work much better with Reaper's default R1 moveset than the either the default R1s or poking ones. Mainly those shaped like a poleaxe: Dragon Halberd and Lucerne. Reaper's diagonal chopping moveset also fits both of Vulgar Militia weapons very well: one is a shotel on a stick, the other is a saw on a stick, so itakes sense and looks cool.

Like they point down and say get gud against practically every other build, but the moment they go up against dual greatspears or a Greatshield they cry that those players are on Ez mode. As if all thrust weapons aren’t problematic.

                                                  So the most recent patch says it improves the guard counter of halberds, but it's way worse than any weapon type, just a basic soldier with a dagger stuns me in one hit, with full bullgoat, but with a straight sword I can successfully guard counter, every time it's not fixed in the slightest.

It feels nice to be able to play reactively instead of planning ahead for every attack string. I didn't realize how much axes in particular were really lacking until I tried this class and straight swords.

I’ll use Int or Faith affinities, so I think the Banished Knight’s Halberd has better scaling, even though Guardian’s Swordspear has better damage overall. The ashes of war damage doesn’t seem to change. I have only enough materials to upgrade one. What are your thoughts?

                                                        • If that image is right then BK has slightly more range over its basic cousin. At least that's something to set them apart. I wonder if it uses a tiny bit more stamina too?

                                                            Hot take: I liked running attack from DS3 much more than the poke, that lets be honest, doesnt fit half of the halberds (how do you poke with shotel or saw, come on). At least they could make some weapons with poke running r1 and some with overhead swing.

                                                              Power stance halberd wreck like crazy. The running r1 catches people off guard like crazy because of the poke/thrust meta

                                                                I wish they would just ditch the spinning heavy attack on Halberds already. Not only does it take forever to charge, it takes forever to do the full damage. I always get hit before the second attack lands - which no other weapon class has to deal with. It looks silly too. Seems like the Japanese weapons are the only ones with realistic, well-thought-out movesets. I wonder why that is...

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            The only meh thing I can think about are slow guard counters (as compared, for example, with great spears) and maybe not so good charged R2s.

                                                                                      • In my opinion, halberds are the best non-colossal weapons for if you plan on two-handing (not dual wielding, holding it with 2 hands).

                                                                                        -The poise damage is very high, just barely behind greatswords.

                                                                                        -The running R1 is (in my opinion) the most effective attack for pressuring other players with its huge momentum and spamability.

                                                                                        -The damage for halberds is basically identical to greatswords. For example, a heavy Iron Greatsword and heavy Nightrider Glaive at 54 strength both have 725 damage (Both of these have the highest pure physical damage in their class).

                                                                                        The one downside is the slow horizontal R2 attacks. The exceptions to this are the Lucerne, Golden halberd and the nightrider glaive, having vertical R2's which are much better.

                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                          Halberd tips aren't the best. For instance the normal "Halberd" has a stabbing m1 animation while standing still but the "Glaive" has an overhead swing and etc. I prefer the stabbing animation but I think only 3 of them have it from the shape of the halberds (No clue since, again, the info of the halberds only lets us know the Swordspear and Loretta's has the under-swing animation).

                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                            • Anonymous

Strong attack (Sweep) will catch most dodging side to side if they're not careful. The light attack (Poke) is great at keeping enemies at distance and can catch people in PvP trying to get away to heal. If they run at you to attack just press dodge to step back and follow up with a forward step poke. I've done so many builds in ER with this weapon (Ice Paladin mixed with faith, Mad Knight, Necro Knight) and I would recommend anyone to take the time to plan builds around this with a shield or no shield.

                                                                                              • Anonymous

Pretty absurd that an r1 can shut down anyone who isnt wearing full bull goats. Even when they should have hyper armor. They do even more poise damage than ultras, have more reach and a higher attack speed. Worst of all they seem nearly impossible to parry.

                                                                                                TLDR Halberds are the most unbalanced weapon class in the game with no real downsides.

                                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                                  I personally struggle the make Halberds work. Some of them have the Reaper moveset, but don't hook behind shields as Reapers do. The others have the thrusting L1s, but you drop your shield when using them and there's no ramp up on R2 the way a Lance has.

                                                                                                  For all the ones I could check, they use the same powerstance moveset as Reapers, but without the hooking behind shields. And Reapers have similar stance breaking damage.

                                                                                                  I'm happy for everyone that enjoys these weapons, but I just can't see any real advantage to them.

                                                                                                  Not a hatepost and not suggesting we min-max the fun away, but an entire class of weapons could bring something unique. I wish we got a Poleaxe, which would do piercing or slashing or strike damage, whichever was max against any particular enemy when two-handing it. Because that was a real weapon and it actually was two-handed. That would be a fun and unique halberd.

                                                                                                  Or, did I miss something?

                                                                                                  • Anonymous

For strength I recommend the Nightrider Glaive or the Gargoyle Halberd. For dexterity or intelligence, I recommend the Guardian Swordspear or the Vulgar Militia Shotel. My favorite thing about halberds is their running attacks. All of the running lights and heavies of the four that I mentioned above are good for different reasons. My second favorite thing about halberds is the excellent range of weapon arts that are available for them: Giant Hunt, Sword Dance, Piercing Fang, Flaming Strike, Flame of the Redmanes, Thunderbolt, Loretta's Slash, Glintstone Pebble, Cragblade, Royal Knight's Resolve, the list goes on. What are your favorite ashes of war on halberds? What is you favorite halberd?

                                                                                                      * loretta's sickle

If you know the timing you can actively punish bad players who panic roll. Tip for others: don't panic roll when you get hit, especially against halberds. You will most likely get demolished.
