Barrel

The Barrel is a loot container which spawns in component piles, near roads, or on monuments. In it are different low-tier components, with a chance for rare ones like Metal Springs, Gears, or Semi Automatic Bodies. Red barrels contain only fuel (low grade and crude oil). The tan and blue colored barrels contain identical loot; the only appreciable differences are that their colors and HP. The tan barrel has only 35 HP and the blue barrel 50.

The best melee weapon for farming barrels is the Salvaged Cleaver

On roadside trash piles, the Blue [entity=2394597732] has 50 health, whilst the Tan [entity=2394597732] has only 35 health.
In monuments, however, it seems as though that it is switched. Tan [entity=2394597732]s have 50 health while the Blue [entity=2394597732]s have 35.

The blue and tan barrels give scrap and components. And the red barrels give low grade fuel and crude oil.

The *NEW* best meta tool for farming barrels are paddles. Slightly faster than the cleaver, only takes two hits. They're very cheap to craft, have a long reach, good durability, and can easily knock down road signs without taking much damage.

Crafting a machete is a very efficient tool to destroy barrels fast. - You can craft it as soon as you recycled 1 metal containing component + 100 wood (Requires no workbench to craft) - It swings fast and destroys barrels in 2 hits
