Sure beats the heat. And darkness.


The Endothermic Fire is a craftable Light Tab Structure introduced in the Reign of Giants DLC. It requires a Science Machine to prototype and costs 2 Nitre and 3 Cut Grass to craft.

An Endothermic Fire provides light and cools the player. It can be fueled with the same items as a regular fire (see Fuel), in addition to Nitre. An Endothermic Fire is unable to cook food. When burnt out, it drops Ashes.

I could watch it for hours, even though it's cold.


The Endothermic Fire Pit is the permanent version of the Endothermic Fire. It requires an Alchemy Engine to prototype and costs 2 Nitre, 4 Cut Stone, and 2 Electrical Doodads to craft.

The Endothermic Fire Pit is more fuel-efficient than the Endothermic Fire. Each fuel item burns as long as they would in a Fire Pit, which is twice as long as the burn time in a Campfire or Endothermic Fire.

Prototype.png Tips

  • An Ice Flingomatic will attempt to put out an Endothermic Fire the same way it does with regular fires.
  • Building an Ice Box to cool Thermal Stone may be cheaper and more effective than building an Endothermic Fire Pit, due to there being a lack of a maintenance cost. A Thermal Stone cooled using Ice Box is also cooled to a lower temperature compared to Endothermic Fire, allowing the Thermal Stone to remain cooler.

Placeholder.png Trivia

  • In thermodynamics, the term endothermic describes a process that absorbs heat energy from its surroundings, "endo" meaning 'inner' as in "going into" thus "absorbing", while the term exothermic is the opposite, "exo" meaning "outer", as in "coming out of" thus "dispersing".
  • The Endothermic Fire is blue, meant to represent a lack of heat, but in reality, blue flames are hotter than yellow flames.
