Matchbox
-You'll need to find a matchbox, these are common in standard houses. You just generally need to find a matchbox for it. Once you find one, create a campfire as shown above. Take the matchbox in hands, go over the campfire and hold RT to light it.

Flare
-You spawn with it, take it in the hand, ignite it. Then go over the campfire and hold RT to light it.

Hand Drill
-Go to a bush, cut it down using a sharp object. You'll get a long stick, use a knife on that stick to split it. Take the split wood pieces, combine it with bark. Tree bark is obtained by using a knife on a tree. Combine the split wood piece and the bark. Then go over the campfire and hold RT to light it.
