How would it help the game? Kicking barrels doesn't seem helpful during gameplay.

But barrels are supposed to be broken open for treasure


I like the idea throw it seems cool. Jigmed They can also be used for other things its not a MUST. Aswell hanah they would work like knives I believe. And since knives are useful this would be useful aswell.

How do you suggest you choose how to break or kick a barrel into the air

If you kick it it goes into the air, it you hit it with your weapon it breaks.

Throw, hit the wall, the enemy got a potion of treatment
