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

Matches are 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, matches must be equipped in the secondary slot of the inventory. Corpses can be burnt if matches are in the primary slot and a gas can is in the secondary slot. Matches can be found in many kitchen counters.

The light provided by matches is the worst of any light source and will function similarly to the lighter, forming a ring of light around the player, however at a reduced radius. If another light souce isn't in the player's inventory, pressing the 'F' key (default) will equip the matches and light one. Once equipped, pressing 'F' will light and extinguish them, being a handy way to save matches, rather than having it on all the time.
