For other uses, see Oil (disambiguation).

Oil is an organic substance, used as fuel in the games of the Amnesia series.


Oil required to keep Daniel's and Tasi's lanterns lit in Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Amnesia: Rebirth respectively. The oil in the lantern will slowly burn until it is depleted, at which point the lantern will automatically go out and cannot be lit again until more is added. Oil containers can be found all over Brennenburg Castle and throughout Amnesia: Rebirth, albeit less frequently than tinderboxes and matches. They come in small, blue, glass containers and shimmer faintly, making them significantly easier to find.

Oil comes in containers of two types in Amnesia: The Dark Descent and three types in Amnesia: Rebirth: small and large (former); small, medium and large (latter). In the first game, small container fills approximately one-quarter (1/4) of the lantern, and a larger container which fills about half (1/2) of it. Large oil potions are absent from the main story (except for one bottle that rolls across a fallen down bookshelf during the revenge ending) but are still implementable in custom maps.

In Rebirth, small container adds two (2) points of oil out of ten, medium container adds three (3) points of oil, and large container add five (5) points of oil.
