[Doom] Barrels are not turning into gib piles if crushed
In the original Doom, a barrel that is crushed will turn into a gib pile. Doomsday doesn't replicate this behaviour.
That it occurred in the original Doom was probably an oversight on ID's part certainly, but it can have an effect on game play.
In the original Doom, a barrel that is crushed will turn into a gib pile before it reaches the state with the explosion action. In Dday because the barrel isn't turned into a gib pile when crushed, it will run through the death frames and hence will explode.

To elaborate on this. The issue seems to be that mobj's with the noblood mobj flag can't be turned into gib's in DDay.
This isn't the case in Vanilla Doom where regardless of whether a shootable mobj spawns blood splats or puff's when shot, it's "corpse" turns into a gib pile when crushed.
