The Tar Lamp is a craftable Light Item in the Shipwrecked DLC. It requires a Seashell and some Tar to craft. It has the same burn time as a Torch (75 seconds), and is similarly affected by Strong Winds and Rain. It can be equipped to the hand slot, or placed on the ground similar to a Bottle Lantern, where it can be turned on or off. Tar Lamps can also be attached to Boats in the lantern slot.

Tar Lamps can not be refuelled, and when depleted will disappear. If the Tar Lamp is on the ground when it is depleted, it will drop ash.

Placeholder TriviaEdit

  • Tar Lamps were added to the Shipwrecked DLC more than a year after its official completion in the Home Sea Home update, after being tested in a beta branch for several months.
  • When right clicking on a Tar Lamp equipped to the hand slot, instead of being unequipped, it will be turned off, but remain equipped.
