The explosive barrels are an environmental object found in Amnesia: The Bunker throughout the many areas of the titular bunker.

Summary[]

Explosive barrels are a physics object that cannot be put into the player's inventory. Instead, they can be dragged around, knocked on its side, and rolled. Like other physics objects of comparable size, they can used to climb to higher ledges or places, and can also be used to block entrances, doors and tunnels.

Explosive barrels can be detonated by shooting with the revolver or shotgun, by blasting with frag grenades, or by lighting fires. The fire and grenades will give you time to take cover or hide from the blast (and the Stalker inevitably coming out to inspect the noise). Doing so can be very beneficial, as they can be used to open doors in the case that Henri has neither other explosives inventoried nor a brick nearby.

Due to their nature, the explosive barrels also make for good offensive tools, being able to clear a room full of rats in a single blast. They can also damage the Stalker and cause it to retreat; or break other enviromental objects, such as tables, chairs, and boxes.
