Is the Halbert a good weapon?

Seems easy to punish people who use it.

Yes. Most weapons are good weapons if you know how to use them.

A wiff can cost you dearly, but its not a bad weapon if use properly.

Yes it's good.
Stunlocks great, powerful, even more powerful with the leo ring

wide angle attacks great for dead angling.

Most weapons are good in the right hands. The Halberd is an excellent weapon.

It's my favorite weapon. Reach is great, damage output is very good. Averages +11 base damage per level-up, although scaling is only so-so. And the 360 degree sweeping R2 attack is great in many situations. The R2 is why the plain halberd is better than the gargoyle halberd by the way.

The scaling is good. C/C scaling is good scaling lol.

I just noticed it's actually D/C scaling at max level. My mistake!

Too easy to backstab people who miss with it, I have yet to be killed by one.

Thats why im asking too, it seems like everyone who uses it against me is a scrub with it.

No but the halberd is

Good for a defensive (and I mean REALLY defensive) playstyle to a certain extent. Think of it as a 'greatspear'
