Molotov Cocktails are extremely useful as a distraction. As the enemies try to put themselves out, they leave themselves open.
The Molotov Cocktail is a very cool weapon. It's a bottle, with a cloth in the top, and it is filled with some form or another of a highly flammable and explosive liquid. When it makes impact with an object, it explodes in a great cloud of fire. Be sure to remain clear of this, as it has a fairly large range, and can harm you. As with grenades, use this to take out groups of enemies, though the fire doesn't always kill them, so use it as a distractor. Set them on fire with it, then as they run to put out the flames, shoot them. Done and done.
Molotov Cocktails are arguably more deadly than grenades; they do more damage to Max if he is unfortunate enough to get hit by one, they do not have the delayed fuse of the grenade, and they cause enemies to be distracted long enough for Max to easily finish them off. However, their maximum throwing range is less than that of grenades and they cannot be thrown around corners. Also, since they explode on contact, they can be more haphazadrous to handle than grenades.
