How to make a Campfire in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

The main way to make a Campfire in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom is to take flint and place it next to a bundle of wood. You can then strike the flint with a metal weapon to ignite it, turning the bundle into a campfire.

If you'd rather not use a piece of flint, anything that will ignite the wood will do. This can be Fire Fruit, Red Chu Chu Jelly, or any other fire items you have on hand. Consider throwing them by holding R and pressing up on the d-pad, which will save you an arrow. Flint can be found in caves and inside rock deposits (use a hammer for these), while wood can be dropped from logs that you chop with an axe, or around stables.

What can you do with Campfires in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom?

The primary function of a Campfire is that it can be interacted with, allowing you to sit and skip time. This is perfect for waiting out the night, or if you're following an objective that only occurs at a certain time of day.

In addition, you can drop ingredients onto a Campfire to cook them. Fruit, mushrooms and pieces of meat can quickly be cooked, increasing the amount of hearts they replenish. But if you want to make more serious meals, you're going to want a cooking pot and know a few good recipes.

Another great use for a Campfire is to stay warm. This can be a lifesaver, especially in areas like the Hebra Mountains.

Finally, consider throwing a Hylian Pine Cone into a campfire to create an updraft of wind. You can ride this using your Paraglider, allowing you to reach high-up places.
