Matches are a drainable item that can be used up to 10 times.

Usage

Matches can be used to light candles, molotov cocktails, cigarettes, campfires, or antique ovens, burn corpses, or as a light source. In order to use a molotov or cigarette, 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.

Light source

The light provided by matches is the worst of any light source and will function similarly to that of the lighter, forming a ring of light around the player, but at a reduced radius. If another light souce isn't in the player's inventory, pressing the 'F' key (default) will equip matches and light one. Once equipped, pressing 'F' will light and extinguish them.
