"The Billhook is a fearsome polearm that sacrifices a bit of range for significantly faster strikes."
It is the second Primary Polearm available for the Vanguard. In spite of its offputting appearance, the Billhook's playstyle isn't far off from a Claymore that traded some damage for range. The only major difference between the two is their sprint attack; the Billhook maintains the traditional stab motion rather than the Claymore's horizontal swipe. It's a relatively user-friendly weapon; just don't forget to take advantage of the weapon's lengthy stab when dealing with Vanguards and Knights.
