Synergies[]

  • Soul Shot benefits quite largely from Ammo Mutation Icon.pngAmmo, as it doubles the possible amount of available to the player.

Notes[]

Trivia[]

  • The name of this weapon, as well as its use of souls, is likely a reference to Charon, the ferryman of the underworld in Greek Mythology.
  • It is also similar to the lantern that the Apostates carry, including the slam attack and soul use.
