For the Dark Souls variant, see Scythe.

The Scythe is a halberd in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

A scythe fitted with a large custom blade.
Has an extended slashing reach when swung broadly, but beware, these attacks make the wielder very vulnerable.

Availability Edit

Characteristics Edit

The Scythe is a very basic weapon. Similar to the Halberd, it is what could be considered a "stock weapon", it has a basic moveset, a very good reach, it is very lightweight, being the lightest out of all Halberds in game, yet it has moderate damage.

This means that the Scythe is great for low leveled players, or for players who want an Halberd that can deal good damage, while also being light.
