Molotov cocktails are ranged (non-smeltable) weapons that set a 3x3 plus shaped (+) zone on fire where it lands.

Acquisition

They can be crafted at a machining table for Cloth.png 25 Cloth, Chemfuel.png 80 Chemfuel and 6,000 ticks (1.67 mins) of work. They are also a common drop from raiders.

Analysis

  • Equip a colonist with Molotov's
  • Draft the colonist
  • Press B to select target area.

Accuracy is poor on moving targets.

A way to defend a base using it is to make coming raids softer after dropping on stone floors/walls so that enemies have a difficult time getting in, without burning the base itself.

Good for disposing of corpses or equipment rapidly, though fireproof flooring and walls are recommended to prevent spread.

Molotovs fire faster than the incendiary launcher, but has poor range and projectile speed. It is also significantly cheaper than the launcher.
