I used a boss soul before knowing you get weapons by it, is there any chance to get the soul back, but i have'nt beat the game yet, so i cant go into NG+ (if a specific boss it's "Dragonrider")

[Minor spoiler ahead]

You can get 2 dragonrider souls in each NG cycle without using bonfire ascetic (the second one will come somewhat later in the game).


You can get it by burning a bonfire ascetic which resets the boss in that area, but also increases the level of enemies in that area to the difficulty of New Game +.

But be careful because burning an ascetic means that when you do get to NG+, that area will be an even higher difficulty (NG++), as progressing to NG+ raises the difficulty of all areas by 1.

So while the enemies in the area are harder, the Boss is back and you can get the Boss soul.

    Other than completing the game (which just pushes all bonfires up 1 level) this is the only way!
