Black Knight Halberd is a Weapon in Dark Souls and Dark Souls Remastered.

body into the attack reflects the great size
of their adversaries long ago.




How to Get / Where to Find the Black Knight Halberd




Hints and Note

  • Give to Frampt to receive 100 souls.

The Black Knight Halberd outdamages the Black Knight Greataxe and the Black Knight Sword at 40 strength and 40 dexterity but has a considerably bad moveset, especially for pvp but has a decent range. While it is a powerful weapon, The Black Knight Halberd has poor stat scaling, so other halberds upgraded along an elemental path out damage it, even at 40+ Dexterity and Strength. Additionally, it can not be enchanted, so for those looking for maximum damage with a halberd, a normal +15 halberd will be superior.
As with all heavy weapons, a plunging attack with the Black Knight Halberd is an effective way to kill the Taurus Demon and Asylum Demon.

DO NOT follow up the light attack with another light attack, it has about half the range and more stamina cost. Use the first light attack exclusively when wielding one-handed.
Note: Single-handed heavy attack has very long wind-up time, even compared to other Black Knight weapons. Two handed heavy attack has slightly shorter wind-up time and is recommended to be used instead.

          Its actually a fauchard (or maybe a glaive), not a halberd, but regardless of what it is, it definitely merks on fools in PVE.

            black knight weapons like this one are really overpowered in NG, with this halberd, i beated the***** out of almost every boss (except Gwyn, i didnt play DLC in my first NG ) with just few light attacks (yes,spamming light attacks) even in NG+, somehow it was still easy as ***** with the halberd

              Really fun to use in PvE once you get use to it, especially early on where it totally wrecks every boss up to and including O&S. Even after that point a fully upgraded BKH is still a very good and is only surpassed by +15 weapons. In particular I found it’s two handed light attack to have great overhead reach and probably one of the best melee weapons if you’re trying to cut off dragon tails.

                A fantastic weapon.
                1. High damage without 40str/40dex so you can use other build Paths like Faith for Lightning Arrows. 36Str/20Dex has 1h 493 / 2h 513 Attack Power
                2. Twinkling Titanite can be easy farmed in Seaths crystal cave, upgrading is no big problem.
                3. The range is fantastic because your attacks have a step forward in the Moveset. Very good for Bossfights when you Evade alot and cant poke the boss because range is lacking. Artorias was very easy and simply 2h Light Attack killed him.

                Dont use in small rooms, you need a free right side also when the ligth attacks are vertical slashs.
                Dont use 2 Light attacks, the second one is a horizontal slash with alot stamina use and windup. You are very vulnerable in this moment.

                The wepons is NOT entchantable or buffable.

                For me a good Upgrade from the normal Black Knight Sword which only need 20Str/18Dex because the Range and Attackspeed is lacking.

                  Question is the black knight halberd tradeable on dark souls remastered i farmed it and got it to drop on a random character i made and want to trade it to a buddy to give to my main playthrough character but every time i drop it he cant see it. Is there something i need to do or he needs to do so we can trade it?

                    Everyone should try and get one of these speedrunner's best friends at the start of a playthrough. I love to use mine two handed for co-op. You will wreck for the noobs and vets alike that tap you in. Not recommended for PVP. I carry a claymore when concerned about those folks.

                      Enchantable?09 Aug 2016 21:55  

                      The hints and tips say "It cannot be enchanted," while the summary on the right says it is enchantable. I would assume it's not, considering the other Black Knight weapons don't seem to be.
