Explosive Barrels
Obstacle Type Explosives

The Explosive Barrels (also Exploding Barrels, Fuel Barrels, Fuel Tanks or Propane Tanks) are a special kind of obstacle in the Tomb Raider Games. They pose no threat in their normal state, however if hit by gunfire, they can turn into a deadly trap for anything standing nearby. They can destroy weak structures and they can kill Lara or most kinds of enemies.
