- Creating a campfire in Little Alchemy 2 requires a series of steps, including making energy, a puddle, a pond, a lake, and the sea.
- The process also involves creating primordial soup, life, land, a continent, a planet, an atmosphere, a cloud, rain, soil, a plant, lava, stone, a wall, a house, metal, a blade, a sword, a plow, a field, a barn, a phoenix, an egg, a chicken, philosophy, big, a tree, wood, and finally, the campfire.
- Alternative methods using ‘time’ and ‘pressure’ elements can be used to skip some steps, but they require unlocking 100 different elements.
- The campfire can be used to create various other elements, including ash, bacon, BBQ, cauldron, dog, fireplace, flamethrower, marshmallows, smoke, smoke signal, story, and more.
For those unaware, Little Alchemy 2 is a fun and addictive little game where players mix elements to create new things. The game can be downloaded and played on iOS devices through the Apple App Store, Android devices through the Google Play Store, and on PCs through the browser of your choice. The game offers over 700 unique elements to discover, some of which can be very complicated and confusing to make. You can play Little Alchemy 2 here!
This article is going to go in-depth on how to create a campfire in Little Alchemy 2. The process of creating campfires can be a little confusing and may require a lot of trial and error, but the benefits of doing so are nothing to scoff at. Once you know how to make a campfire, many new possibilities will open up for you, including the ability to create bacon and dogs! Who doesn’t love those?
The Best Method to Make a Campfire in Little Alchemy 2
For the sake of this guide, we assume that you are brand new and have nothing already unlocked. This is to ensure that this guide can be useful for everyone, but we will provide alternative methods later on for those further in the game!
Step 1: Make Energy
The first step to making a campfire is to make energy, and this can be done with the base 4 elements in the game. Simply combine fire with fire to create energy, the universal motivator.
Step 2: Make a Puddle
Next up on the list is to make a puddle! In order to make what the game refers to as nature’s kiddie pool, you should combine water with water.
Step 3: Create a Pond
This next step is very easy and involves the puddle you just made. Simply combine that puddle with either another puddle or with water and it will form a pond (“a really small lake”).
Step 4: Create a Lake
Once again, combine the pond you just created with another water element in order to create a lake. Naturally, the game refers to this as just “a big pond.”
Step 5: Make the Sea
Naturally, keep adding more water to a lake and theoretically it would become a sea, so that is what we’re going to do. Combine water with your existing lake and welcome the sea, which the game reminds us is not an ocean.
Step 6: Create Primordial Soup
Don’t worry, we are finally done adding water for now. Next, you’re going to want to add the earth element to your sea, which will create a primordial soup. The primordial soup element is a very important element that is used for many recipes in Little Alchemy 2.
Step 7: Create Life
Life will always find a way, particularly with your help. In order to create life, you want to merge the primordial soup you just made with the energy that you made in the first step of this process.
Step 8: Create Land
Leaving the life we just created behind for a little bit, you’re going to want to mix two earth elements to create land. Aren’t you happy it isn’t water?
Step 9: Create a Continent
You likely already know where this is going. Just like the water elements we previously created, this time we’re gonna stack some earth elements. Add earth to your land and you will create a continent.
Step 10: Create a Planet
The next step is to create an entirely new planet, which can be done by merging two continents together. Note that unlike the water elements before, adding simply another earth element here will not work.
Step 11: Create an Atmosphere
Now that we have a planet, it is time to make an atmosphere. You should go ahead and mix the existing planet with air in order to create this atmosphere.
Step 12: Create a Cloud
In order to create a cloud, you are going to need to mix that atmosphere you just made with some water.
Step 13: Create Rain
I hope you all missed adding water because we’re back to that portion of the guide. Add some water to the cloud in order to make it cry (rain).
Step 14: Make Soil
The next step of the process is to make soil, which can be made by combining life and earth elements.
Step 15: Make a Plant
The next step requires making it rain on the soil, so you should combine the new soil element you just made with the rain element you made the step prior. Combining these two elements will create a plant, the original solar-powered organism,
Step 16: Create Lava
Next up, you will need some Hot-n-Ready liquefied rock, as the game calls it. In normal terms, this means that you need to create lava, which can be accomplished by mixing fire and earth elements.
Step 17: Create Stone
Finally, we are making something that actually belongs on a campfire! Any survival-oriented video game in the world will tell you that stones are required to create a campfire, and they are generally pretty easy to make, too. In Little Alchemy 2, a stone can be created by mixing your newfound lava element with the air element.
Step 18: Create a Wall
Next up, combine the stone you just made with yet another stone, which will create a wall!
Step 19: Create a House
What is a house if not just a collection of walls? Combine that wall you just made with another wall and enjoy your wonderful new Little Alchemy 2 home!
Step 20: Create Metal
In order to create metal in Little Alchemy 2, you’re going to want to combine stone and fire. As the game mentions, metal can do it all, and it is used in a lot of recipes.
Step 21: Create a Blade
Once you have accomplished the production of metal, the next step is to turn that metal into a blade. In order to do that, simply combine the metal you just made with some stone elements.
Step 22: Make a Sword
Add some more metal to that blade you just made and it will turn into a sword (which is, according to the game, a really long knife!).
Step 23: Create a Plow
Putting the sword away for now, the next step is to create a plow. A plow can be created by mixing together metal and earth elements.
Step 24: Plow the Field
Using the newly created plow, you’re going to want to mix it with an earth element in order to create a field. Just think of this as if you just used the plow on the earth nearby to create a field.
Step 25: Make a Barn
The next step that you should take in the process of creating a campfire is to make a barn. The barn can be created by combining a house and a field.
Step 26: Summon the Phoenix
Obviously, the next step to creating a campfire is to create a literal phoenix. This can be done by merging together the fire and life elements.
Step 27: Cultivate an Egg
Next on our shopping list is an egg from our newly summoned phoenix friend. In order to get an egg for our alchemy, we need to combine two phoenixes. Creating an egg will also make the phoenix disappear from your element list, as the egg is its only use in the game.
Step 28: Hatch a Chicken
Next up, you’re going to place the egg inside a barn in order to hatch a chicken.
Step 29: Create Philosophy
What came first, the chicken or the egg? Referencing this famous question, the next step will be to combine the chicken and the egg, which will create philosophy.
Step 30: Make Big
The next step is to literally create the concept of “big,” which the game calls “when small grows up.” This is done by combining philosophy and a planet. Big is a very important element that is used for many things within the game.
Step 31: Create a Tree
What is a tree? If you think of what a tree is in the most literal sense, it is a very big plant. As such, the idea here is to combine a plant and the newly made ‘big’ element, which will create the tree that we need.
Step 32: Create Wood
The process is finally starting to make sense now, such as why did we create a sword? The answer is to cut down the tree for wood, which is what you need to do next. Combine the sword and the newly discovered tree in order to create wood. Wood is a very essential element in Little Alchemy 2 and it is used in the vast majority of recipes in the game.
Step 33: Create the Campfire
It is finally time to create the campfire! Combine the newly discovered wood with fire and enjoy your lovely new campfire.
Alternative Combos to Make a Campfire in Little Alchemy 2
There are no alternative ways to make a campfire in Little Alchemy 2 directly as it will always require the combining of fire and wood at the end. That being said, there are a few alternative ways to make it to this final step, such as using the ‘time’ and ‘pressure’ elements to skip a decent bit of the process. The process for that route is as follows.
- Water + Water = Puddle
- Puddle + Puddle = Pond
- Pond + Pond = Lake
- Lake + Lake = Sea
- Earth + Sea = Primordial Soup
- Primordial Soup + Time = Life
- Earth + Life = Soil
- Life + Soil = Plant
- Plant + Time = Tree
- Air + Air = Pressure
- Earth + Pressure = Stone
- Stone + Fire = Metal
- Stone + Metal = Blade
- Blade + Metal = Sword
- Tree + Sword = Wood
- Wood + Fire = Campfire
Time is a very difficult element to unlock in Little Alchemy 2 as it requires having already discovered 100 different elements. Due to wanting this guide to be beginner-friendly, we opted to not use that method in this guide.
What Can I Use a Campfire For?
Your newly discovered campfire element can be used to create a lot of different things, including the previously promised bacon and dogs. Check out the following table for all combinations that require a campfire.
|Element to Combine
|Water, Rain, Time, or Paper
|Pig or Ham
|Metal, Garden, Meat, Steel, or House
|House, Wall, Brick, or Container
|Water, Time, or Storm
How to Make a Campfire in Little Alchemy 2: Wrapping Up
As you can see, creating a campfire in Little Alchemy 2 requires a lot of steps. Without a guide, this could be an extremely complicated and difficult process to complete successfully on your own. Some of the steps make a lot of sense while others seem quite silly. We hope that having access to the campfire makes your Little Alchemy 2 journey a lot more enjoyable!
