Molotov Cocktail - Lethal Traits
Leaves the Strike Area Ablaze
Molotov Cocktail leaves a flaming blaze on the impact point, damaging those near or enters it. It is a powerful area-denial weapon that can turn the battle, or annoy your teammates.
Don't Set Yourself On Fire
The area that is set ablaze is quite wide, so suicide by Molotov Cocktail is a very real threat. Make sure there's no obstacles between your impact point or its you who's going up in flames.

Optimize your command key so you can throw your Molotov Cocktail lethal item fast. The side button on higher-end mouse is recommended, but the standard G key is viable if you practice.Check out Best Setting Guide Here!
Throw To Shut Down Firing Ports
Some areas of the map have windows & openings with good lane of fire that will be constantly filled by enemy combatants. Throwing a Molotov Cocktail into it will shut down the firing port allowing your team to advance.
Avoid Using In Close Quarters
The Molotov Cocktail is best used when thrown into tight spaces such as small rooms, but shouldn't be used when YOU are in tight spaces, as it explodes immediately when hitting something.
Perfect For Point Defense
A well-tossed Molotov Cocktail can wipe an entire point capture team and prevent key areas from being taken by brute numbers piling on top of capture areas. Bring a Molotov Cocktail if you're on defense.
