The Symmetrical Lance is a spear-like melee weapon, which makes all hits critical for six seconds after rapidly killing two enemies.

Killing enemies quickly with this weapon is the best way to maximize its damage. However, the area of effect of the attack is a very narrow horizontal line so you will find it quite difficult to hit bat-like enemies and those slightly below or above you. It does hit slightly behind you as well.

Cannot be stored in a backpack.
