Molotov Cocktail is a throwable weapon in BATTLEGROUNDS.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Molotov Cocktails create an area of fire on the ground around where they impact. Players hit by or passing through this area will be set aflame, doing constant damage over time. Molotov Cocktails can be used offensively, but don't bounce like other throwable weapons. Another potential use of a molotov cocktail is area denial. If you set the staircase on fire, players will not be able to pursue you up to higher floors, and you can use this extra time to set up a kill zone or escape off a balcony. Molotov cocktails can also be used defensively to obscure an enemy's line of sight, similar to a Smoke Grenade.

Throwing a Molotov Cocktail is a two step process-

  • Press and HOLD the left mouse button to prime your molotov. This will start the detonation timer.
  • When ready, release the left mouse button to launch your molotov along the parabolic arc outlined for you.
Highly flammable. Do not drink.
