PUBG's newly improved gas cans add a ton of functionality to the previously underused item, allowing players to create all kinds of new traps. Although the initial damage from gas canister explosions is lower than it used to be, the force of the explosion is as strong as ever. That's goods news if you're a boom-happy explosives fiend.

Lucky for us, that's exactly what u/KoneSr is — at least in this clip they posted to the PUBG subreddit Wednesday. Putting the training island to good use, KoneSr stacked up dozens of gas cans underneath a truck, popped a squat in the backseat, then lit the trail of gasoline they had spread on the ground nearby.

The fire reached the truck quickly. After a brief pause, all the gas cans under the truck exploded at once, launching the truck spinning into the heavens. It flew straight up, gaining height for close to 10 full seconds, and close to another 10 to land back on the ground.
