A flare that burns with a bright red light. Commonly used to indicate obstacles or advise caution on roadways at night. — In-game description
The Road Flare is a type of equipment in DayZ Standalone. When ignited, it lights up the near environment for 20 minutes.
In order to ignite the flare, the player must press the action button (F by default). Once lit, it cannot be unlit, and cannot be put in your inventory or other containers. It will continue to provide light if dropped or thrown.
This item, when lit, can also be used to ignite a Fireplace.
