Really? Pretty sure I've lost a few to barrels in the past. But that would mean that there was no unique in that level, which would indicate a bug in the program. Or that it was an armor and the possibility that a former would drop it into lava on death was overlooked.
You mean exotics that are being destroyed? Uniques have a green aura and can't be destroyed by any means, exotics can be destroyed like any other item.

If the "you feel there's something really valuable here" message is displayed, that means a unique. But I'm not sure if I've ever actually lost a unique to a barrel before, I was just pretty sure I had. I think next time I find the Anti-Freak Jackal in a MMB game, I'll see what a barrel does to it.

Uniques can't be destroyed by lava, barrels, or anything else. I like to spite the RNG by throwing valuable-but-useless equipment into lava, and those are the only things that refuse to melt.

Exotics melt just fine though, as many a discarded BFG can attest to.

Speaking of what certain objects do in fluids, has anyone noticed that if you drop an envirosuit in acid, it turns to water? I might be wrong, but I could have sworn I've done that before. You can even do it without walking in it if you place a bunch of junk items around.

^ I'll have to try that.

As for Uniques, they are *mostly* indestructible.  Dropping them in lava won't destroy them.  Neither will nuking them, blowing up a barrel near them, or firing a rocket at them.  But you *can* destroy unique armour by gibbing a Former who is wearing it.  So, you still have to be careful about blowing up barrels if there are Formers are around.

No, it doesn't do that.  Besides, that would be incredibly useless.  Also, Environmental Packs have the same rarity as Homing Phases, so I wouldn't want to waste them like that anyway even if it filled an entire pool.

Barrel levels are only annoying to me when there's also "something really valuable here." If not I feel no qualms about blowing up every barrel from afar.
Then thank RNG for sending you tons of Env Suits :P . Blowing up every Napalm Barrel in the level can make it quite impassable.
