The Fire Bomb is an optional weapon in Metal Slug.
Often called the "Molotov Cocktails," these are simple glass bottles filled with flammable liquids. A cloth soaked with the same flammable liquid is inserted in the opening of the bottle and lit before the bottle is about to be thrown. When the bottle hits the ground or target, the flammable liquid is sprayed over a considerable area. Then, the fire lit on the cloth ignites the liquids, creating a temporary firestorm over the area. It still remains one of the most potent weapons for civilian military around the world today.
These grenades cover much more area than standard grenades, so it's best to use it on large groups of infantry. It has the same damage output as standard grenades, despite it having no explosive power. It is not as effective on vehicles as it is on infantry. It can char enemies on contact, even shielded ones.
