Halberds (colloquially hallys) are long two-handed slashing weapons with blades similar to axes and handles made up of long poles. While halberds are among the slowest weapons, halberds can hit opponents two squares away, as opposed to the one square away most melee weapons can hit. This makes them capable of utilising safe spots. The area of effect abilities hurricane, quake and meteor strike also gain additional range when using halberds.

In addition to requiring a certain Attack level, some halberds have quest requirements as follows:

All metal halberds up to dragon may be bought from the Quartermaster at the Tyras Camp in Isafdar, except for the white halberd which can be bought from Sir Vyvin in Falador. It is not possible to make standard bronze to rune halberds using the Smithing skill; however, crystal and attuned crystal halberds can be made from harmonic dust after the completion of Plague's End.

Whilst not actually called halberds, the noxious scythe, Ivandis flail, Thalassia's revenge and Dragon Rider lance have the same attack range as halberds and can be considered as such. Masuta's warspear is technically a spear with the attack range of a halberd, and thus, it is the only halberd-range weapon able to deal full damage against the Corporeal Beast.

Update history[edit | edit source]

The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
  • patch 17 October 2016 (Update):
    • Halberds no longer require a Strength level to wield - only an Attack level.
  • patch 22 September 2014 (Update):
    • Some errors in calculating damage values have been fixed with two-handed weapons.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Despite being called halberds, some of them lack the defining top spike and back hook of real-life halberds, and are thus more similar to the bardiche or Lochaber axe.
