Halberd should have a melee weapon like Jack

Consider - copy the stab weapon from the Jack, put it on the Halberd, scale its power down to the Halberd's current DPS
it would be so cool
the Halberd is already a super short range attack so this wouldn't change much gameplay wise
plus, yknow, the name Halberd, is a polearm, the Halberd could have an actual halberd

Sounds very overpowered? Fast hover jacks sound like a nightmare to catch

It would go through shields and kill raiders. Sounds scary.

Halberd's ranged attack is the only thing keeping it balanced at the moment. Given its role, the fact that it opens up to fire before it is point blank with target is its biggest disadvantage, as it requires lots of attention to use correctly. If it had no range, it would make it way stronger. Arguably, it would also make it way less spammable as with melee range it would be naturally dps-limited.
