The Ferryman's Lantern is a melee weapon exclusive to the Fatal Falls DLC. It is a two-handed weapon that charges its powerful secondary ranged attack with ammo by slaying enemies with the primary attack.


  • Ammo: 7
  • Special Effects:
    • One soul is gathered after killing an enemy, or using the last hit of the melee combo on a boss.
    • Hold the secondary attack button to charge gathered souls. Every 0.2 seconds the button is held, a soul is charged. Release the button to fire all charged souls. If more than 3 souls are fired, they inflict critical hits.
