Equip to mute sneezes and coughs.
— In-game tooltip

Toilet paper is a miscellaneous item.


Toilet paper can be equipped in a player's secondary slot to muffle coughs and sneezes when suffering from a cold. It can also be placed or dropped for the purpose of clutter, creating more realism for the player when looting.

It serves a second purpose as fuel. With 32 sheets each having 12 minutes of burn time, the whole roll can sustain a fire for a total of 6 hours and 24 minutes when added as fuel, compared to 12 minutes when used to light fires, making it the lightest item to carry per burn time.


The loot distributions can be found in the table(s) below.
