|“|| Lump of Coal.|
Coal is a material in The Long Dark.
Coal is the only fuel source that can be used to heat a furnace up to 150 C for forging. Unlike wood, coal can only be added after 30 minutes since the fire started.
Coal has a fire duration of 1 hour and adds 20 degrees celsius to the fire. This makes it the most weight efficient fuel in the game, both temperature-wise and duration-wise.
Coal is mainly found in mines, randomly laying on the ground with a respawn cycle of a few days.
