The Lantern is an Equipment item in Sea of Thieves that acts as a portable light source to illuminate the immediate area.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Every Player Pirate will receive a Lantern during their Maiden Voyage, which they can use at any time during their adventures on The Sea of Thieves. The Lantern can be accessed from the Equipment Radial Menu. The Lantern can be lit and unlit with the Primary Use Button. It can also be held higher with the Secondary Use button to slightly intensify the lighting output or light other Lanterns. The Cosmetic design of the Player's Lantern can be switched at Equipment Chests. These designs can be purchased from Equipment Shops and only change the visual appearance of the Lantern. Players can check out their own Lantern in 3rd person view with the Lanterns High Emote, which is available for purchase from the Pirate Emporium for Ancient Coins.

The colour of the Lantern's Flame can be changed at the Well of Fates on the Ferry of the Damned when a player has died in a specific way. Players will have to raise their Lantern by the beacon to take a coloured flame. These coloured flames are called Flames of Fate. If Players raise their Lantern by another Lantern, they can ignite it with a coloured Flame of Fate, or pick a coloured Flame from it instead.

Lanterns can also be used to light Beacons on Large Islands, which can then be seen from afar on the Seas.

Players are required to raise their lit Lanterns to make Shadow Skeletons vulnerable to damage during night. Shadows of Fate Skeletons require a specific coloured Flame matching their colour to be made vulnerable to damage.

Some Riddle Map riddles require the player to raise their Lantern by a specific Landmark. Players need to stand still when performing this action.

Variants[edit | edit source]

All new players are equipped with a basic Sailor Lantern by default. Other versions are available for purchase from the Equipment Shop or Companies.
