Lighter 120px.png

Primary use: Start Fires
Other uses: Light Source
Weight: 0.1

The lighter is a drainable item with various uses. It can be used to light unlit candles, molotov cocktails, campfires, antique ovens, burn corpses, or as a light source. In order to use a molotov, the lighter must be equipped in the secondary slot of the inventory. Corpses can be burnt if the lighter is in the primary slot and a gas can is in the secondary slot. The lighter can be found in many kitchen counters and on zombies.

The light provided by the lighter is inferior to the flashlight, however it will provide a ring of light around the player. If a flashlight isn't in the player's inventory, pressing the 'F' key (default) will equip the lighter and turn it on. Once equipped, pressing 'F' will turn it on or off, being a handy way to save fuel, rather than having it on all the time.
