- Main article: Weapon Types (Dark Souls III)
Halberds are a type of weapon in Dark Souls III. They are characterized by their long range and diverse attacks. Halberds have a considerable amount of flexibility. Most are capable of dealing damage on par with much heavier weapons. There is typically a moderate to high investment in strength and dexterity to properly wield these weapons. Some halberds such as the standard Halberd and the Red Hilted Halberd will deal thrust damage. This can be useful during trades with enemies while the Leo Ring is equipped as the halberd is much longer than most weapons and benefits greatly from the Leo ring's counter damage buff.
