The Firestriker is a tool for lighting fires.
Powerful, re-useable fire starter, this tool increases the probability of lighting a fire by 15%.
Discovered in random states of condition. Each try to light a fire or a torch reduces its condition by 2% so a new firestriker can be used 50 times before it breaks down.
Occasional spawns: Rarely spawns on shelves or tables in place of more common lantern fuel. Rare discovery while searching large toolbox drawers. Found in one of the randomly occurring Prepper caches that is dedicated to fire and fire starting implements.
- It is advisable to use the firestriker in the early parts of the game when you are starting a fire so you can boost your firestarting skills for later in the game with matches and other fire starting implements. This way, you can start fires more efficiently with a higher firestarting skill.
- Modeled after ferrocerium-and-steel type fire starters that provide oxidizing cerium sparks as a temporary ignition source. Popular amongst outdoorsmen and survivalists due to their compact size, durability and resistance to water.
- The firestriker is based off the Aurora Fire Starter 440C.
