Torches were a one-handed weapon variant. They were slower and more powerful compared to Claws; but were faster and less powerful compared to sword, trident/halberd and axe variant weapons.Template:Ref-SR2Template:Ref-SR2-ManualTemplate:Ref-SR2-Prima Torches had a unique finishing move - igniting the enemy and setting them aflame. This move could only be used once however, as it extinguished the torchTemplate:Ref-SR2Template:Ref-SR2-Prima; unlike Legacy of Kain: Soul ReaverTemplate:Ref-SR1, torches could not be re-litTemplate:Ref-SR2.
- Torches in Soul Reaver 2 were presumably based on the Torches seen in Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, with a similar appearance and similar moves, animations and attributes to their Soul Reaver predecessorsTemplate:Ref-SR1. Notably the Soul Reaver 2 torches are unable to be re-used or reignited.
- Like many of the weapons in Soul Reaver 2, Torches are not explicitly named in-game. In many guides and sources, weapons are divided by generally into one- or two-handed weaponsTemplate:Ref-SR2-Manual, or into general weapon familiesTemplate:Ref-SR2-Prima(with the torches given their own unique one-handed variant class).
- Torches are labelled as "hndtrch" in game files.Template:Ref-SR2. The game manual and Prima guide both refer to them as "torches"Template:Ref-SR2-ManualTemplate:Ref-SR2-Prima.
