The Molotov Cocktail is a thrown weapon in Fallout and Fallout 2.

A home-made flammable grenade.

— In-game description, Fallout

Characteristics

Usually made from either a high grain alcohol or petrol in a bottle, Molotovs are the urban terrorist's weapon of choice, being relatively easy to use and produce.

Its damage type is Explosive (not Fire as could be expected), so it's useless against wanamingos and other creatures with little fire resistance.

Locations

Fallout

Fallout 2

Notes

  • Good for killing rats and wolves, and also destroying earlier doors.
