The halberd consists of a curving axe head combined with a long spear tip mounted onto an 8-foot-long pole. If you use a ready action to set a halberd against a charge, you deal double damage on a successful hit against a charging character.
You can use the hook on the back of a halberd to make trip attacks. If you are tripped during your own trip attempt, you can drop the halberd to avoid being tripped.
