Molotov Cocktail is a Projectile in Bloodborne.
- When the Hunter throws a Molotov Cocktail and hits an enemy, it deals fire damage.
- It also deals splash damage to the surrounding area of impact.
- You can use an Oil Urn first to double the fire damage dealt.
- There is a slight delay between activation and when the Hunter actually throws the cocktail.
- Keep this in mind against fast moving targets.
- It's best to use them when the enemy won't move from a spot for a time, or they move in a predictable manner.

- Molotov Cocktails deal a considerable amount of fire damage, are fairly cheap, and do not have a stat requirement in order to use them.
- They do have an "A" rank in Arcane, making them useful for arcane builds in need of a long ranged fire attack.
- It should also be noted that they do have a "D" rank in STR, although this is negligible for the amount of damage it gives you.
- In general, anyone can use them since they deal effective amounts of fire damage from a safe distance.
- There are multiple versions of the Molotov Cocktail in this game. All of them are used in a different manner and thus can broaden your strategies:
- You cannot harm yourself with your own Molotov Cocktail.
- Molotov Cocktails are used in the same exact manner in this game as its real life counterpart.
- They were cheap and easy to make, which is likely one of the reasons why the citizens of Yharnam and Hunters alike use them.
- Regular fire was also effective against the beasts, and since they can be thrown safely from a distance, it's yet another reason why they were a popular item.
- When the Hunter throws a Molotov Cocktail, it will already have its cloth lit on fire the second it's shown in his/her hand.
