Description

The Halberd buttons down into its armored hull when not firing, offering 4x damage resistance. Its slow, short-ranged weapon is unsuitable for use against highly mobile targets.

Tactics and Strategy[edit]

Set the Halberd's fire state to "hold fire mode" to keep it from opening up its protective hull to fire at enemies, thus keeping its damage reduction capabilities active (for, say, when it needs to speed past some modest defenses).
