Is the Halbert a good weapon?

PvP it is rubbish. I love it for PvE though. Fire Gargoyle Halberd and Great Knight Halberd leveled all the way are awesome, especially in Oolicle.

I mained the halberd in both Dark & Demon's (even tho thrust vs slash) & it's a great keep away reach weapon.

It's really good, especially since TONS of players in PvP just haven't seen them more and will just walk right into its wide hitboxes.

I love it's 2HR2 on enemy wakeup, unless they dodge away (which a lot of 'decent' players won't do for fear of a chain stab) there's a great chance you'll catch them with it.

It's rubbish in PvP. Only new or inexperienced players are ever going to get hit by it, while everyone else will make you whiff and then BS you. It is't even good for stunlocking, because it only does 31 poise damage!.

Good points:
-Decent BS damage
-Can stunlock low-poise players
-2HR1 can combo (for example, after WoTG)
-All other polearms are worse (except great scythe)

As far as gimmick weapons go it's decent, but you should never use it seriously.

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'


So people who go crazy are doing it wrong?

Well, that would probably explain the discrepancy. I can lose terribly or completely dominate different halberd users.
