The Torch is a tool which provides light and warmth to players, which is especially useful during the night or while in caves. Players automatically know the torch Engram as soon as they enter the game.

As long as the Torch is equipped, its durability will decrease. A Torch lasts for about 15 minutes of use. An Apprentice Torch with 101.47% durability will last approximately 40 minutes.

Torches can also be thrown and will continue burning for 13 minutes and 15 seconds wherever they land.

The torch will provide 50 points of hypothermal insulation and -25 points of hyperthermal insulation.

Torches can ignite small bugs, like Meganeura and Titanomyrma, which will cause them to take some damage over time.

Torches can be attached to most dino saddles the same way a skin is (allowing you to use a two-handed weapon mounted while still benefiting from a torch).
