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



Halberd of the black knights who wander
Lordran. Used to face chaos demons.

The large motion that puts the weight of the
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.

      I do mid level invasions (lvl 60), sometimes up to 100 in a day, this and the greatsword are BY FAR the most popular weapon choices for players within my level range. I could doge these in my sleep now. Both have too much recovery time and make for easy pickings. I will say these against light armor are devastating if contact is made but then again, ninja flips...

        First play on the Switch. Extemely lucky with the drop since it's a rare weapon. You don't understand how much fun this weapon is especially in PvP where they get hit even though, visually, they are out of my halberd's range.

          Well, there's that...

          I decided to do a faith/dex build and was doing all the leg work to get all the good stuff before starting the main story progression. Started as a cleric and armor sucks so I wanted to get the brigand and crimson armor set. Wile I was already in that area I thought I might as well get the grass crest shield as well plus the bonfire would come in handy in case I got fried by the drakes. Of course there's the black knight there but I usually lock on and just keep my shield up until I'm past him. Got the shield and was about to reset at the bonfire when souls came in and so did the halberd! This game has screwed my luck so many times that I'll accept this as compensation lol.

            Was going on casual run, wanted this weapon. Made about 7 new games until this beast dropped, tried with 5 liquid humanities, you get one for Asylum Demons, 3 at firelink, 1 on the road through walley of the drake's in cave behind first drake after undead dragon, uh don't forget 2k souls at left claw of the undead dragon, need master key for this, takes about 10 mins a run. Then get your ass to andre buy dyi kits, and get your ass to Great Hollow for those twinkling goodies. Make your BKH +5, get minimal stats for wielding, and you have yourself made game. No regrets, having too much fun. I advise you to have deprived class because of mace and stun it gives to crystal lizards.

              BKH best weapon for a strength build! Just one shots anyone if you have it +5 and have the Hornet ring equipped. For those who say it sucks in PvP it's because you suck a** at PvP.

                This thing wrecks everything in PVE (not tried it in PVP) . At +5 it is (imo) the best all round weapon (for a full melee, filthy-casual type character) and will carry you through the whole game. Effective against all enemies and bosses. From skeletons to dragons. It appears more effective than the fully upgraded (Lightening) Zweihander (even against dragons) or the very good (Chaos) Gargoyle Halberd (albeit without any humanity scaling).
                As a bonus, you can pick it up and upgrade it fairly early. Biggest downside is the drop rate (from the non-respawning BKs).

                    On a bad connection, this thing is an absolute nightmare. Also remember that there will NEVER be a situation where this thing does real damage.

                      Why do you shake when using the 2H light attack? Am I missing stats or is that just the normal animation for it?

                        Um, I don't know if this is known, but I found a pretty broken glitch with this weapon. I was in Blighttown in the swamp, and did a running light attack. The attack skipped all the startup frames and only had the damaging frames and it was instant. This can be easily recreated by doing exactly what I said. It's seems really broken
