How To Throw A Molotov in Project Zomboid

To aim, hold the right mouse button and then aim at the desired location where you wish to throw the Molotov by pointing it with the cursor. Press left click to throw the Molotov and it will set the zombies in that location on fire. Be careful as the aiming mechanic can be quite inaccurate at times.

The Molotov itself does not cause any impact damage however it does set objects on fire which can be useful for blocking off an area or preventing zombies from attacking you. This fire can spread quickly and can even cause burns if you are not careful.

Make sure to maintain proper distance and not throw Molotovs at trees as they remain unaffected. The fire caused due to the Molotov can slow down zombies and stop them in their tracks.
