Shadow Man is armed with the Shadowgun, the Deadside representation of Mike 's handgun. Although similar in appearance, the difference lies in the fact that Shadow Man has the power to channel the power of the Mask through it. Rather than firing normal bullets, the Shadowgun literally focuses the power of Death itself from the Mask and unleashes spectacular destruction in the form of shrieking wraiths, ripping through its victims to leave their souls behind. The ShadowGun does not use any bullets because of it being channeled through the Mask. The more Dark Souls The Shadow Man obtains the stronger his life force meter becomes which also makes the ShadowGun stronger. Most of the standard enemies in the game die in two fully charged (120 Dark Souls) gun shots.
