The Torch is the most basic light source in Darkwood. Like the flashlight and the military flashlight, the torch has to be equipped to be used. It projects a dim but usable circle of light around the Protagonist when equipped, and loses durability while in use. An intact torch will last exactly 5:36 minutes before it's fully consumed.
The torch can be swung like a weapon, albeit with poor damage and with each strike diminishing its durability by 25%, so even a new torch breaks in a mere 4 hits. However, this does have other benefits besides direct damage: a strike with a torch can be used to clear away Worms and Black Substance within its attack range as well as to light Gas trails or pools.
- In earlier builds, the torch was one of the few items in Darkwood that used to have several crafting recipes.
- Torches are decent for building reputation with the trader NPCs, as they are very cheap and easy to produce and can be sold for a decent profit.
