Creates a fire.

Saints Row: The Third
As with real world Molotov cocktails, they are bottles filled with a flammable liquid with a soaked rag hanging out of the bottle. The rag is lit before throwing, and when the bottle smashes on the ground the liquid spreads and the vapors burst into flames.
Saints Row Edit
In Saints Row, Molotov Cocktails can be bought from Friendly Fire stores at any time for $150 cash. The player can carry a maximum of 101 Molotov Cocktails. As with all thrown weapons in Saints Row, tapping the left trigger will do a small under-arm throw, whereas tapping the right trigger does a long over-arm throw, making for some poor accuracy. It is recommended the player uses the left trigger when throwing, as it is slightly more accurate.
Saints Row 2 Edit
In Saints Row 2, they are once again unlocked at Friendly Fire through game progression, Molotov Cocktails cost $100 cash. They are often seen in riots during the FUZZ Activity, and are sometimes used by enemy gang members. Compared to the previous game, the player can now carry just 11 Molotov Cocktails, although they are far more accurate as The Protagonist will now throw them directly towards the reticule.
Saints Row: The Third Edit
Molotovs were first revealed to be in Saints Row: The Third in a leaked gameplay video. In the game, the Molotovs can be upgraded to increase range and power. Level 4 Molotovs can destroy most small and mid sized cars with one hit. Curiously, Molotov Cocktails do cause fire to the surface it hits, but the 'fire' effect seems to be purely graphical; the fire doesn't cause any damage whatsoever.
Molotovs are sold at Friendly Fire at $25 a piece.
