— In-game description

A can opener is a device used to open canned food without a pull tab in DayZ.

A can opener occupies one inventory slot and can be commonly found in supermarkets. It can also be found less commonly in residential loot spawns.

A can opener is used by dragging it over a closed can to open it so the contents inside can be consumed without any spilling. Canned food with a pull tab, like canned tuna, does not require a device to open it.

Canned food can also be opened by using a sharp instrument like a knife or bayonet, however this causes the instrument to slowly become blunt and some of the can's contents to spill.
