Tools are items used to assist the player in certain tasks. Many of them are found scattered around the Peninsula (with some being crucial to plot-progression), while others can be crafted at any stage of the game.
Currently no tools are needed to construct buildings or to craft other items. However, specific tools, specifically axes, may be required to cut down trees to get the materials needed for a building. The first tool you obtain in the game is the plane axe, which can be found right after the introduction sequence.
The primary function of axes is cutting down trees to clear areas of forest and gather building/crafting materials. All axes can also be used as weapons, though they may not be the fastest or strongest options. The following lists all axes ranked by their efficiency for cutting down trees:
Handheld Light Sources
While fires are a handy thing to build and cook meat on, sometimes the player needs some portable light. The melee weapons require a fire upgrade to be light-able, by attaching cloth first. Attaching cloth and booze to triple the burn length is no longer possible. Below are the handheld light sources available to the player.
These items can provide additional storage or allow the collection of items.
Additionally to cutting down trees and illuminating the player's vicinity, there are some tasks that can only be fulfilled by more specialized tools. The list below contains all such tools in alphabetical order:
