Campfire materials, previously called campfire kit, is a camping kit used to place a campfire in any location.
To place it, right click on the ground and select "Build a fire" when the kit is in the player's inventory. The campfire will be placed but will not be on fire.
To light the campfire, the player requires a fuel item, and either a lighter, matches, or a notched wooden plank with a sturdy stick.
Upon lighting the campfire, a weak flame will appear. If a player adds a burnable item (logs, books, etc), the fire will grow brighter. Going near an active fire pit will warm up the character. Furthermore, it can be used as a heat source to cook food.
A fire can be put out by extinguishing (right-click option) it or waiting for rain to douse it. The snuffed campfire kit may be picked up and placed elsewhere, or left on the ground to re-ignite later. It is unnecessary to extinguish the campfire before picking it up. Any items inside the campfire will be placed on the ground if it is picked up.
Starting a fire inside a building will burn the building down. This can be useful for clearing property or devastating to home bases.
Zombies are attracted to the light that fire gives off.
