Lords of the Fallen: How to Use Ranged Weapons


Ranged combat has always been part of Soulslike games, but Lords of the Fallen introduces a new mechanic that makes projectile use essential regardless of build.

Throwing projectiles and killing foes from distance is a key concept in the title game, and many players want to maximize it to make it easier. How to utilize ranged weapons in Lords of the Fallen:

How to Use Ranged Attack Weapons

Players should access the inventory menu to equip a ranged weapon and ammunition. Put the Throwing Hand in your ranged weapon slot, and then load up your ammo slots with grenades, hatchets, and javelins.

Before using a ranged weapon or throwing an object, the player must equip one and assume Ranged Stance by pressing and holding Left Ctrl/LT/L2. Choose your ammo, then press LMB/RB/R1 for a fast shot, or press and hold RMB/RT/R2 for an accurate shot.

Players’ ability to fire or throw is not tied to the quantity of bullets or darts they have on hand, but rather to the number of Ranged Slots they have available. When employed, more powerful ammunition types will require more spaces to store their ammunition. Spending on Health raises your maximum number of Ranged Slots.

The player’s Ranged Slots are represented by the bar below their stamina. The number of available slots that will be used up by the player’s next attempt is displayed in yellow segments. When no more Ranged Slots may be used, ranged weapons cannot be employed.

When players run out of Ranged Slots, they don’t have to go scavenging or world-hopping to find more arrows and explosives; instead, they can simply rest at a Vestige to replenish their supplies. You can reload your weapons without stopping to rest if you have an ammo pouch or satchel with you.
