The Oil Barrel is an environmental object in Day Z that can be used to create a small fire from its top. It can be lit on fire by selecting the "Put on Fire" command when a player is close enough. The fire can also be put out once lit by selecting the "Put out Fire" command. You do not need a Box of Matches to light the Oil Barrel on fire, which makes the Oil Barrel an effective means of cooking for survivors without the need to create a Fireplace.


Oil Barrel Uses[edit source]

  • The Oil Barrel emits a glow radius of approximately 5-10 meters when lit up.
  • It can be used to cook Raw Meat when lit.
  • Can be used as a source of increasing body Temperature. It will warm up nearby players.
  • The Oil Barrel can be used to attract the attention of other players or zombies when lit.
