The Petrol Bomb (also known as the Molotov Cocktail or simply Molotov) is a thrown explosive weapon, similar to the Grenade. Unlike a Grenade however, it explodes on impact, and scatters fire that lasts for a few turns after detonation. The flames fall in accordance with the angle of impact, but are also affected by wind.
Select the Petrol Bomb, adjust the Worm's aim, and hold the Fire Button to power up a throw, and release the Fire Button to lob the Petrol Bomb.
- The Petrol Bomb should be used in areas where its initial explosion will not throw your victim clear of the ensuing flames. Enemies trapped in tunnels and craters make the best targets.
Tips & Tricks
- Sometimes, because of the wind, the flames may travel up or down the walls of a previous circular explosion, which may provide extra damage. Keep this in mind when an opponent's Worm or one of your Worms are in a hole.
- It will do up to 100 damage if you throw it correctly.
