A Molotov Cocktail is made from Cheap Vodka, Cloth and a Match. If a party member has all three items select one and choose "Make Molotov Cocktail". The other option is to make a bandage. Molotov Cocktails can be used as a single-use fire weapon when thrown though are less easy to aim that guns. They can also be used to set fire to structures and are sometimes used by looters attacking your base if you are using wooden fences. To fire a molotov at an enemy (npc/infected) use left mouse button (PC) but take care of the longer trajectory. This will set the target on fire.
|“||Molotov Cocktails are unwieldy in combat but can be useful in a pinch if you've run out of ammo. They can be used to burn down wooden structures.||”|
