Safety warnings

It is possible to collect crates while using the blowtorch, but be very careful! If walk directly with the “hot” part of the blow torch into the crate, it will burst into flames and hurt you!

Digging directly into a barrel with a blow torch will make it explode instantly, even if it was frozen.
