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.
