A Bullseye lantern is a light source item which can illuminate darkened areas. It requires 49 Smithing to make the steel frame and 49 Crafting to make the glass lens; however, a sapphire or an emerald can be used in its place. 49 Firemaking is required to light it.
After filling the lantern with Lamp oil a player must use a tinderbox to light the lantern.
Confusingly, there are four different items with the same name, and all but the lit lantern are tradeable on the Grand Exchange. The examine text is different for each:
- You need to add a lens before you can use it (frame)
- You need to add lamp oil before you can use it (empty)
- A sturdy steel lantern (oil)
- A sturdy steel lantern casting a bright beam (lit)
Bullseye lanterns can also be stolen from chests in Dorgesh-Kaan, which require either 52 or 78 thieving (either one yields them very often). They can also be stolen from cave goblins or purchased from Miltog in the Dorgesh-Kaan marketplace. Some of these methods will still require the use of lamp oil to complete them, however.
This lantern is required with a sapphire lens to get a Sapphire lantern in the Tears of Guthix quest, as well as the While Guthix Sleeps quest. Another variation is the Emerald lantern, with an emerald lens, used in the Lunar Diplomacy quest.
This lantern can be used for one of the medium Falador Tasks: Light a Bullseye lantern in the Chemist's house.
