With the update 1.19 of the survival hit DayZ, another useful tool, the Blowtorch, found its way into the game. In this guide, we'll tell you where to find the torch and how to use it.

What it's about: The new Blowtorch in DayZ is a very versatile tool. In this guide, we will not only show you how to find and use it. We will also show you what the torch can't do at the moment.

Here you can Find the Blowtorch in DayZ

In the world of DayZ, there are currently two different official maps; Chernarus and Livonia. On both maps, you can find the Blowtorch. It is mainly found in areas with industrial loot. This includes garages, warehouses or even trains.

We have compiled both maps for you to give you an overview of where you can encounter the Blowtorch.

How to Use the Blowtorch in DayZ

Now that you know how to find the Blowtorch, we'll tell you how to use it properly. However, the torch first needs fuel in the form of gas. We will also show you which fuel you can use and where you can find it. For the burner, you can use all three canisters that you can find in DayZ. These include:

  • Small gas canister: 330 units of gas.
  • Medium gas canister: 650 units of gas
  • Large gas canister: 800 units of gas

You can find these in villages or hunting areas. In Chernarus there are up to 120 gas canisters by default, but in Livonia, there are only up to 45. So far, the consumption of the Blowtorch is 12 units of gas per second. To repair objects with the Blowtorch, you need about 72 units of gas per part.

Among other things, you can of course also use the gas burner for cooking, for which you will need additional equipment like a camping stove. You can find this attachment in residential buildings or barns. Then you put a pot on it, add meat or vegetables, and you can easily cook something delicious.

Use Blowtorch for Vehicle Repair

The biggest use for the Blowtorch in DayZ is repairing vehicle parts. You can use the torch not only to refresh individual parts, but also to get parts like the engine running again. Just take the torch in your hand, go to the damaged part and hold the corresponding button to repair it.

Tip: Epoxy Putty is less efficient in terms of repairing car parts, but it is worth having Epoxy Putty with you to repair helmets, vests, or gas masks.

How to use the Blowtorch in DayZ

The Blowtorch is versatile. Not only can you use it to maintain your car, but you can also use it for different tasks. We'll give you a little insight into what you can use it for.

Repairing Cooking Equipment: Aside from vehicles, you can also easily use the Blowtorch to refurbish your utensils that you need for cooking. This includes, for example, pans, pots, and cauldrons.

Other Repairs: You can also use the Blowtorch to renew various metal objects. Here is a small list of things you can repair with the Blowtorch:

  • Barrels
  • Generators
  • Construction Spotlights
  • Metal Sheets

Making Fire: Since the Blowtorch produces a flame, you can also use it to start a fire. Just use it like matches or a lighter.

What you can't do with the Blowtorch

Of course, there are some limitations to using the Blowtorch. For example, you can't use it for wound healing. Here's a quick summary of what you can't use the Blowtorch for, at least so far:

  • Repairing melee weapons.
  • Cauterize wounds or stop bleeding.
  • Repair helmets, vests, or gas masks.
  • Repair the stove or the tripod.
  • Food or water cannot be boiled in a pot with the Blowtorch.
  • You don't do extra damage from fire when you hit someone with a Blowtorch.
  • You also cannot repair walls made of metal.
  • Sewing kits also cannot be disinfected by the burner.
