"Lob this into a crowd to get them fired up!"
—Combo card description

The Molotov is a combo weapon in Dead Rising 2, Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. It is created by combining whiskey with newspaper.

It is a whiskey bottle with a burning roll of newspaper sticking out of it. It can be thrown like a grenade, causing a fiery explosion when it hits the ground.

In Off the Record, looters throw Molotovs at Frank. Chuck also uses Molotovs as weapons during the mission People Like Us. Defeating him will reward Frank with the Molotov combo card.
