A WMolotov cocktail is a bottle-based improvised incendiary weapon. It is a breakable glass bottle containing a flammable substance, such as gasoline, and usually a source of ignition such as a burning cloth wick held in place by the bottle's stopper. Due to the relative ease of production, they are frequently used by protesters and non-professionally equipped fighters in riots and urban guerrilla warfare. They are primarily intended to set targets ablaze rather than instantly destroy them.

The Molotov is an incendiary weapon featured in the Insurgency in the Insurgency: Molotov Spring content update.

A Molotov may be used to destroy a weapon cache, disperse concentrated units, and as an area of denial weapon.

The Molotov does not have a fuse time. It is instantly set off when in contact with any surface, and does not bounce off walls, unlike the AN-M14.

The Molotov cannot be put away when set alight, whereas the AN-M14 can simply has it's pin reinserted back. This means for the player to switch weapons would mean to throw the Molotov away.
