The Light Forge Halberds were first encountered by Raziel when he traveled to the Light Forge in the cliffs of the Great Southern Lake, shortly after he arrived in the history preceding Blood Omen. Inside the forge, these halberds could be found adorning the walls of several of the forge rooms and they could freely be picked up and used against the Shade and Undead Thrall enemies in the forge.[Soul Reaver 2][Soul Reaver 2/4]
Light Forge Halberds were two-handed Trident/Halberd variant weapons; with a longer range and more power than sword variants, but at the cost of attacking speed. They were faster but less powerful than axe weapons[Soul Reaver 2][Soul Reaver 2 manual][Soul Reaver 2 strategy guide (Prima)].
- Like many of the weapons in Soul Reaver 2, Light Forge halberds are not explicitly named in-game. In many guides and sources, weapons are divided by generally into one- or two-handed weapons[Soul Reaver 2 manual], or into general weapon families[Soul Reaver 2 strategy guide (Prima)](with the light forge halberds a two-handed and Tridents/Halberds variant). The weapon is labelled as "ltstaff" in game files.[Soul Reaver 2] and briefly simply as a "halberd" in Prima's Soul Reaver 2 guide.[Soul Reaver 2 strategy guide (Prima)]
- Along with the Dark Forge staffs, Light Forge tridents and Air Forge axes, Light Forge Halberds are one of four weapon variants found exclusively in elemental forges[Soul Reaver 2] and they may therefore be Ancient vampire creations.
