The Mastodon Halberd is a halberd in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

Halberd of the Primal Knights that defend Drangleic castle.
The brutish and might Primal Knights wield this halberd like a feather-light twig, but to the ordinary warrior it is a chore to even hold up, owing to its great weight.
Terrible experiments were said to have taken place in a hidden manor in Drangleic. The mastermind presiding over the deeds was thought to be Lord Aldia.


Dropped by the Primal Knights in Drangleic Castle and Doors of Pharros.

Characteristics Edit

The Mastodon Halberd features one of the highest physical damage output out of all the halberds, and is unique in that it scales purely with the character's strength. As such, this is a halberd meant for STR builds, as it does not have any scaling in Dexterity.

Its moveset is identical to the standard Halberd, which means its 1H light attack is the overhead swing followed by a thrust.
