Gaming’s favourite prop rated by our resident cooper
Sea Of Thieves The sight of these poor, abused barrels trapped underwater makes my heart ache. Forget the treasure – rescue those unfortunate waterlogged souls.
Far Cry 5 What kind of sick individual forces an innocent storage-loving barrel into joining their violent cult as a prop device? These people shame the profession.
Assassin’s Creed Origins A history lesson for you here: barrels first originated in ancient Egypt as storage pots until they finally morphed into the woody frame we know and love today. True fact.
Wolfenstein II It’s well known that barrels are impervious to the effects of LSD, so no matter how disastrous the trip your good ol’ spherical buddy will be there to talk you through.
Beyond Good And Evil 2 The most useful tool in surviving a dystopian future is the barrel. You never know when you might need to store something on a roof.
