A barrel is a quest item which is obtained during The Tourist Trap.
Multiple empty barrels can be found around the mine cart and the lift and, according to Ana, is the only way rocks get out of the mines. This gives the player character an idea and uses one of these barrels to get Ana out of the mines. Ana is forced into the barrel by the player, and is then taken to Irena.

- If you search a barrel while having one in your inventory, you get a message saying you can handle only one. However, multiple can be obtained by the drop trick.
