The lantern is a tool item found in Stranded Deep. Lanterns can be found hidden inside lockers and hard cases contained within shipwrecks.

Once acquired, the lantern can be used to light up darker areas either underwater or during the night. It can be turned on and off by equipping it before clicking the 'use' button (default 'LMB'). Being solar powered, it will never stop working, but presumably will require sunlight to recharge. The lantern can be used both on land and in the water, but will not work when exploring the deep sea areas.

Like the flare, the lantern can be placed on the ground while lit to allow the player to do other activities without having to hold it.


  • The lantern only appears to be turned on while standing less than a meter from it. It will, however, still emit light.


Trivia Edit

  • Like other loot items, despite spending a considerable amount of time inside underwater shipwrecks, the lantern manages to remain almost completely well-preserved, to the point where it is still able to work in perfect condition.
