The '''Molotov Cocktail''' is a weapon cut from ''Half-Life 2''. It can be found in the Development of Half-Life 2 game|''Half-Life 2'' leak and ''Half-Life 2 Survivor''.

As it name implies, it is a standard WikipediaMolotov cocktail|Molotov cocktail with identical effects. When thrown, it produces a large circle of fire which will remain for a while before dissipating, and could presumably be put out with the Fire Extinguisher, also cut.

==Behind the scenes==
*It was originally to be used by Citizens against Combine forces in the ''Half-Life 2'' test level ''Get Your Free TVs!''.

*It was originally part of the Brickbat props, thus its Headcrab appearance when spawned in the leak, as well as the Snark HUD icon from the original ''Half-Life''.

*In the ''Half-Life 2'' leak, the fire sprites are so small that it is almost impossible to notice them.
*The bottle model and its textures exist, but the texture is broken in both the viewmodel and worldmodel.
*Hammer shows that Citizens have two weapon choices named "Beer Bottle" and "Beer Bottle2", related to the Brickbat and the Molotov cocktail.
*In the ''Half-Life 2'' files, several texture files for HUD weapon icons can be found, most of which still containing the icons for almost all of the cut weapons. The Molotov Cocktail is among them.
*The Molotov cocktail is also present in the story mode of ''Half-Life 2 Survivor'' as an unfinished weapon and can only be obtained with cheats (impulse 101 or give weapon_molotov). It uses Pheropod's HUD icon and name and Fragmentation Grenade (Half-Life 2) | grenade's models. Unlike the leak Molotov, the fire is fully functional and deals small amount of damage once per second. The player can hold 6 Molotov cocktails at the same time.
*In both ''Half-Life 2'' leak and ''Half-Life 2 Survivor'', a message "Drawing Molotov..." appears in console when each Molotov cocktail is drawn for the first time.
