What's your dumbest death so far?
I shot a barrel and then died to glass. I knew the barrel was there and that it would explode, I just thought I'd be slick and get away in time. No enemy short of the SOB could have killed me on that floor, and I had already found the elevator.

I'm not even sure if it's possible to deserve to die any harder then that. But I'll probably find a way!

Stepping on your own mine.

My favorite is trying to pro-strat kill an SOB by shotgunning an exploding barrel at it. The SOB tried shooting me, missed, but the force of his bullets as he was trying to shoot me was enough to knock the barrel back to me.

Full flopsweat panic as I just rapidly smashed the fire key while my dumb Waster was cocking the shotgun.

Oh shoot, just remembered another one (also having to do with explosive barrels). I've made it a point to shoot explosive barrels before I get anywhere near them, just so that I don't risk blowing myself up with them. One such instance had me doing that, watching the barrel get primed, and then seeing a stupid Mutamutt hear the gunshot, run towards me a full speed, bumping into the barrel taking impact damage and killing itself, but not before knocking that primed barrel down a hallway right into my face.

Oh yeah. I forgot about that one.

The recurring death inducing scenario for me is the one where I want to preserve ammo by using up all the ammo in a pistol/rifle/zapper before I ditch it, or use a weaker one instead of the strong one I also have in my inventory. And end dead while my enemy has something around 2 hp left.

Ended my 1st courier run on 4th level with low health by running into a room with two barrels and a mine I overlooked. Whoops.

S.O.B. Purifier pathed around a set of square wall blocks/obstructions in the generators area, I ran the other way to set mines up. Purifier paths the other direction without my knowedge and surprises me with a volley of bullets, launching me into my mines.

I miss my cutana already.

Opened locked door, was greeted by a shotgun trap to the face along with 2 mutant dudes with assault rifles

I was at 50 hp being chased by a rottyman, and I decided meleeing a barrel would be a fantastic idea and definitely give me enough time to run away before it exploded. It did not give me enough time, and I took the barrel explosion and the rottyman explosion directly in my stupid face. I survived until the knockback wore off and I landed in the corner filled with radioactive goop

The word "barrel" appears on this page 13 times. Whoops, 14 now.

Tried to unload a trap wasn't paying attention to where it was aimed blew a barrel up down the hall that explosion flung a crate\box at me and killed me. Moral of the story when you have 5 hp don't stop for bullets

Can we have a sticked thread for barrel kill count
I think there needs to be emphasis on the fact that barrels can and will explode you into multiple dead peices
