A Gas Barrel is an item that can be picked up and placed. After a Gas Barrel is shot with a gun or attacked with a Torch, the barrel will explode destroying blocks around it and dealing damage to anything nearby. Gas Barrels are most commonly found in Gas Stations. They can destroy blocks in a 3 by 3 radius, depending on durability of blocks. The explosion can detonate Sedans, TNT, and unlit Pipe Bombs. Gas Barrels can be detonated by Wooden Bows or Crossbows.


While the Burning Barrel uses the same model, it is not explosive.

As of Alpha 17, they have been replaced by Rusty Barrels, which are containers and not explosive.
