You’ll also need a lighter to throw a Molotov in Project Zomboid. So here’s how to get both of them.
1. Craft Molotov
A Molotov Cocktail can be crafted using Bourbon, a Ripped Sheet, or a Dirty Rag.
Alternatively, you can use an Empty Bottle, a Gas Can, a Ripped Sheet, or a Dirty Rag to make a Molotov.
In Project Zomboid, Molotov doesn’t cause physical damage but does spark a firing range of up to 4 tiles, making it applicable to burn out multiple zombies.
2. Get a Lighter
A lighter can be used as a trigger for the Molotov. It’s also a light source.
You can find the lighter in several places throughout the game, typically in most containers in buildings, rooms, vehicle glove boxes, or seats.

First, equip the Molotov and lighter in your primary and secondary, respectively.
Then, right-click the mouse button and move the cursor to aim at the zombies.
Left-click to throw the Molotov. Easy as that!
Remember that the flame will spread widely and may burn you, so keep yourself far from the fire or find a safe place.

If you’re getting chased by a group of zombies, you should keep running and throw the Molotov at the wall of the house or any construction nearby.
The flame will slow them down and kill them without you turning around. This is a smart strategy to increase your chance of survival further.
