The Incendiary Grenade is a type of projectile weapon featured in Dead Island and Dead Island: Riptide, made from volatile chemicals such as Potassium Chlorate.


When thrown, the incendiary grenade explodes after several seconds and spreads fire around the immediate area of landing. Unlike the Grenade, the Incendiary Grenade does no fragmentation damage to objects around it, but sends out a blast of heat and fire that will cause the surroundings to be cover in flames and inflict a certain amount of fire damage. It can be seen as a better, but rarer, version of the Molotov Cocktail. The reason it's so rare is because it's not sold by any Merchants or found anywhere in the game world. Despite it not doing any initial explosive damage, the grenade does a lot of residual fire damage to enemies standing in its radius, making it good against hordes who will stand in the fire. It's not advised to waste them against Butchers however, as the Butcher can regenerate health if not being constantly hit, so they're likely to heal some or all of the fire damage before you can close in to strike them. They are however very effective against slower moving targets like Thugs or Wrestlers.
