Joel can create a Molotov Cocktail by binding an alcohol-soaked wick to the top of a bottle of hard liquor with a high alcohol content. When the wick is lit and the Molotov Cocktail is broken, a ball of fire will explode from it.
The player needs an empty beer bottle, a toilet paper, and a match or lighter. Then, they have to wrap the toilet paper around the beer bottle and then put the toilet paper on fire with the match or lighter.
- The Molotov was first seen in the E3 stage demo where Joel crafted a Molotov Cocktail and ignites it to kill a hostile survivor in an abandoned hotel.
- In the PAX Prime demo, an enemy barely misses Joel with a Molotov, forcing him to charge at Joel, who kills him with his pistol.
- In the E3 2012 demo, Ellie seems to be affected phsycologically by Joel using the Molotov on a hunter, as upon seeing the burned body she says "Holy sh*t Joel" Joel responds by saying "Keep it together".
- Easily made, the Molotov cocktail seems to be a perfectly designed improvised weapon in a world like the one of TLoU, since ammunition has become scarce.
