I believe it is also recorded (until I find the actual map file and try it myself) but in theory it should be easier on the CPU since the barrels have no "crush value" (unless they are shot *duh* ) and don't break apart into several pieces like the wooden boxes.

The big "wooden box man" from the first extreme-physics video had a box count of 3200-3400 (my estimate).
