      The comments on farming this weapon and how gargoyles drop it confuse me. The weapon always drops for me when cutting off the tail of the gargoyle in Anor Londo who appears when you open up the elevator shortcut leading into the main cathedral. If you aren't opposed to doing the early game before O&S without it, feel free to save yourself the headache and try it this way.

      People are also asking about upgrades. I've used it for multiple playthroughs and would say it's one of the better weapons in the game if you aren't dedicated to dumping stats into STR/DEX/INT/FAI at all, which is how I prefer to play this particular souls game. At that basic 16 STR/12 DEX requirement, your best option is Lightning. Other infusions have their advantages for various builds in various situations, but this is your best bet.

      I hope people find this helpful.

        once you get to a certain point (maybe 30/30 or something) this thing actually outclasses the BKH due to it's higher scaling and it can be buffed too, it's probably one of the best PvE weapons imo.

          It's not true that gargoyles drop only one thing. U can farm this halberd, shield and helmet as many times you want.

          Step 1: Enter the fog gate leading to gargoyles.
          Step 2 (Optional, only one time possible): Cut 1st gargoyle tail to get his elastic rubber axe if u like it.
          Step 3: Kill one of the gargoyles leaving second one alive.
          Step 4: You will get: nothing OR halberd OR shield OR helmet (sometimes even more than one item at a time)
          Step 5: Run to the entrance and jump to your death nearby or let the other gargoyle finish you (just to leave blood stain near fog gate)
          Step 6: Return, pick your remains and repeat whole process as many times u want to get desired ammount of gargoyle's stuff.
          Step 7: Profit? (when u done finish both and u may even get item from the second as well)

          Tested on few characters while playing PTDE so should work on Remaster too.

              The elemental infusions are great, but on a quality build this thing also rocks. For some reason all its attacks benefit from leo ring whether they're thrusting or not. Insane counter damage.

                My personal favorite weapon. Much like the halberd but with slightly less thrust damage and more regular damage. The moveset chops instead of stabs. The resistance bonus only sweetens the deal.

                When fighting the gargoyle bosses, make sure the first one gives you it when he dies. Otherwise just jump off the building and try again. Sooooo worth getting it.

                  This thing got me from the Gargoyles all the way to the Kiln (Farmed & swapped up to Black Knight Halberd +5 right before Artorias), no other weapons in-between. +5'd immediately, +10'd right after entering the depths, and +15'd right after Anor. Fantastic weapon if you keep it levelled. Finishing off Kalameet & Manus before going at Gwyn, and paired with a similarly maxed grassroots shield, I'd say it was almost perfect throughout.

                    Farming method has been patched for years, you only receive awards after bell garg fight is over now, not during. Only thing during is tail axe.

                      Here's the thing, the regular halberd gets a slight damage boost in terms of elemental infusions like enchanted. I think the halberd gets A scaling while the gargoyle halberd gets B. So you will do a bit more damage depending on your build with the normal halberd. However, if it's an infusion with no scaling, like lightning, the gargoyle halberd leaves the regular halberd in the dust. The exception being chaos, which although does not scale with stats, but with humanity, this creates a very special weapon that I would agree is a bit broken given that you can get it so early and it gives you end game stats. Also the gargoyle halberd gives you a bump in all resistance categories.

                        Chaos Gargoyle Halberd = Broken. You can get it to +5 before Sen's Fortress if you know where to go. Insanely OP weapon that early with low stat investment. You'll never have trouble with invaders again, unless they are also rocking a one. Ideal for gankers or people that want an easy road through the game. The only thing that's tricky is the humanity.

                          In the Chaos+4's magic defense, it says it is 32,7 while it should be 32.7 but it works either way (Max chart). It also doesn't reflect those stats when you do click on the Chaos upgrade chart

                            Been playing since 2013 and for some reason did not realize that gargoyle weapons could be infused or buffed. I think I confused them with dragon weapons. With every infusion this halberd gives you about 45 extra AR than the regular halberd. It doesn't have the thrusting attack that the normal halberd has, but it still seems to have the same range hit wise, and the vertical into the horizontal swing makes this a much better option for PvP.

                              A straight direct upgrade to the normal halberd in every way. One of the top 5 best weapons in the entire game, best chaos weapon in the game, even with 0 humanity it has a 497 AR (601 AR with 10). I still use this weapon with my Max Level character when I am up against enemies that are very weak to fire damage. It's just simply that good. If there is a downside to using this weapon, the only one I have found is from getting hate mail from PvP.

                                I was playing around with the mungenmokey AR tool checking out the highest AR for chaos weapons. This appears to be possibly the best chaos weapon in the game, and somehow I missed it all these years. When maxed out at +5, with 10 humanity, this has a 601 AR. And it only weighs 6, has excellent range, has a fast move set and 360 damage, and you only need 16 str and 12 dex. And it gives you added resistance like all gargoyle items. You can get this weapon very early game as a chance drop and if can beat Quelaag early on, you can make a dash for both embers needed in the Demon ruins with ease, and then take the shortcut to Vamos. There is no scaling to worry about except for the humanity. My SL22 character has a 601 AR on NG without even ringing the second bell and I only needed to kill two bosses. I never really messed with chaos weapons before because of the liquid humanity required but this is crazy. I have not seen this mentioned on this wiki, did anyone else know about this?

                                  Without a doubt the best weapon in DSR. It’s easily obtainable from the beginning of the game if you farm the Gargoyles by killing one and waiting to see if they drop it, and if not, just dying to go back in. It has relatively bad one handed capabilities but if you two hand it and run a strength build or quality build, by god you will be unstoppable. As long as you can time dodges and understand enemy timing, you can dish out enough damage to put black knights to shame in just a few hits. This thing absolutely shreds bosses, not to mention basic enemies and has fast attacks, as well as low stamina cost per hit. The ONLY possible weakness that this weapon has is its lack of poise, hence why you need to be good at dodging, but as long as you aren’t brain dead, this weapon can carry you through the entire game without a hitch

                                    Since obtaining the first lord soul, this became my main weapon along with the Zweihander. This thing wrecks the catacombs and the tomb of giants if divine. I then used it for the rest of the game at lightning +5. Amazing damage with all attacks, fast R1 attacks, Doesn't consume much stamina, decent weight, good attack range and increased resistances, making it very useful for blightown and many other places. Good weapon.

                                        You can get this weapon from the initial boss fight with the twin gargoyles, or later on in Anor Londo from the two gargoyles guarding the path. I believe it's a guarantee in Anor Londo, but from the Twin Gargoyles it's about 20%ish on the drop? Something close. Either way, you can increase your chances of acquiring the weapon by consuming five humanity and slaying them. Cutting off one's tail gives you a war axe, which is not what you seek. It's the halberd you seek. Some people are in these comments spreading misinformation. The halberd drop sadly is a pure luck drop and if you want it to bust in the teeth of other low SL players? You'd have to run that boss fight and if it didn't drop, leave out, make a new character and go through all that crap again.

                                          If you're looking for a good Chaos weapon this is an amazing choice, it hits 601 AR at +5 Chaos with 10 Humanity (making it the 8th strongest Chaos weapon), it weighs pretty much HALF of the other top ten Chaos weapons in terms of numerical AR. Not only that it has the lowest Strength Requirement as well so you don't need to put as much into those stats for a powerful Chaos weapon that you can one-hand that won't weigh down lighter characters either.
