"A weapon which scatters fire when it is thrown"
— Item description

The Molotov Cocktail is a handmade throwing weapon in Resident Evil Outbreak and its sequel, Resident Evil Outbreak File #2.

Any character has the ability to make this weapon by combining a Newspaper, Alcohol Bottle, and a Lighter. (each successful creation will make five molotovs)

This flammable weapon is effective against any regular enemy, burning them to a crisp. However it will not harm most bosses. They have a basic attack power of 500HP and will continue to inflict further damage as long the flames continue to burn. Once thrown it also produces a small area of flame that lasts for a few seconds, repelling any enemy from coming in making it somewhat useful for blocking a path.

In Resident Evil Outbreak File #2, the molotov cocktail is extremely powerful against bug foe types. Specially the Scissor Tails, Mega Bites and the Giga Bite boss.
