Molotov Cocktail

The Molotov Cocktail in Rust is an incendiary weapon that players can craft and use for area denial or to flush out enemies from cover. When thrown, it creates a fiery explosion on impact, setting the surrounding area ablaze and dealing damage over time to any players or creatures caught in the flames. Made from simple materials, it is an effective tool for raiding or defending a base. The fire from the Molotov can also damage wooden structures, making it useful for weakening enemy defenses.

Using a Molotov Cocktail is straightforward: equip it from your inventory, aim, and throw it at the target area. Once it shatters, the flammable mixture ignites, producing a fire that burns for several seconds. Players should exercise caution, as the flames can harm the thrower if not used at a safe distance. It is also important to note that the Molotov has a short fuse time, making it essential to throw it promptly after lighting.

A few tips when utilizing the Molotov Cocktail include throwing it from an elevated position to cover a wider area, using it at choke points to cut off enemy retreat or advance, and combining it with other weapons for maximum effect. Since the Molotov can spread fire over a considerable area, it is ideal for controlling space in combat situations or deterring wildlife from approaching your base.
