What was halberd especially effective against?

mounted cavalry
mob
swordsmen
archers
Halberd was quite verstile in battle, but it was es­pe­cial­ly ef­fec­tive against cavalry. The hook opposite the axe head was used to pull horsemen to the ground. Its ver­sa­til­i­ty made the halberd a court body­guard weapon for cen­turies.
