In Max Payne

Molotovs are semi-rare weapons found mostly in Part 1. Jack Lupino's men and Jack himself are fond of using the weapon. Usage and appearance drastically decreases in Part II; for example, Vlad supplies Max with supplies for every type of weapon found up to that point in the game-aside from molotovs-and the Molotov is for the most part non-existent in Part III, being replaced by grenades and grenade launchers.

In Max Payne 2

Although their occurences are rare, when molotovs are found they are generally found in large numbers. Once again, they are much more common in Part I. In Act II, Mona cannot find grenades, but she does come across three molotovs to help aid her as she progresses through her level. Molotovs are unavailable in Part III.

Trivia

  • The Molotov Cocktail is a Secondary Weapon.
