Tar is a resource Item introduced in the Shipwrecked DLC. It can be gathered from Tar Slicks using a Tar Extractor and is required for a variety of crafting recipes.

Tar can be used as Fuel in Camp Fires, Fire Pits, as well as their endothermic versions, and in the Tar Trap. It can also be used to refuel the Tar Extractor and the Sea Yard.

Tar may also be harvested with a Trawl Net.

Tar can be planted on the ground to produce a flammable Tar Trap that slows down anything walking on it, including the player. Tar Traps can be refueled with Tar, restoring it to full durability regardless of which stage it used to be on (this includes the "full" stage).
