Day Z, the survival shooter from Bohemia Interactive, has landed on Xbox Game Pass and has reached a whole new audience – with hundreds of thousands of players hopping in for the first time.
If you're new to the game, you might be wondering how to make a fire. This is a key part of avoiding contracting hypothermia and cooking meals, but can also give away your position.
Here's how to keep yourself warm and fed.
DayZ: How to make a fire
Making fire requires some items that are fairly common in Day Z's world. You'll need one of the following combinations:
- Rag and stick
- Bark and stick
- Paper and stick
Once you have these, combine them in your inventory. You'll also need to use matches, a road flare, or a hand drill kit to ignite it.
Starting a fire can take longer depending on the weather, so be prepared to spend some time.
If you're looking to cook, you'll need not only a cooking pot but a tripod to rest it over the fire, as well as the items you'll be cooking.
