- Four are found in a chest in Firelink Shrine, under the elevator to Undead Parish.

Cracked Red Eye Orbs are identical to Red Eye Orbs, except that they are single-use items and that players do not need to be in the Darkwraith covenant to use them. When one is used, the player attempts to invade another person's world as a black phantom. Like Red Eye Orbs, the player must have reversed their hollowing in order to use a Cracked Red Eye Orb.
- The level range for invasions using the Cracked Red Eye Orb is the same as the Red Eye Orb; 10% lower than that of the player's or higher.
- Level range is not accounted for when invading players within the Darkroot Garden forest, so care should be taken when invading there at low levels.
- One Cracked Red Eye Orb per playthrough can be traded to Snuggly the Crow for two Purging Stones.
