For an overview of all Molotov cocktails in the Fallout series of games, see Molotov cocktails.

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

A home-made flammable grenade.— In-game description, Fallout


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. In Fallout 2 though, this peculiarity makes Molotovs useful at blasting open stronger (those that can't be broken by normal attacks) locked doors as the cheapest explosive available.



Fallout 2Edit


As with other explosives, it can be used to destroy doors.

Behind the scenesEdit

It was named after Russian Premier Vyacheslav Molotov.
