Molotov Cocktail


The molotov cocktail is a thrown weapon, unaffected by wind, but shatters on impact with land, releasing a hail of sticky flames onto the land and any hedgehogs in the way. The impact itself does not do damage.


  • Impact damage: 0
  • Bursts into 100 sticky flames
  • Charge to shoot: Yes
  • Affected by wind: No
  • Ends turn: Yes
  • Retreat time: 3s
  • Crate type: Weapon

How to use

Pressing and holding the Attck key (default: space bar) will charge up the throw. Hold space till you have the desired amount of charge and release. It will fire automatically once the charge hits full.


  • The fire the molotov cocktail releases burns longer and slower than normal fire.
  • The molotov cocktail can be devastating in small crevices.


  • As of 0.9.19 the molotov cocktail (among other weapons) can be fired from underwater using flying saucer. The water will not render the molotov cocktail useless, unless it explodes below the water surface.
