You've never been to a game I've been to, clearly. I've gone through walls, crashed through window frames, torn shit on glass, had gear scorched by burning cars, hosed a chest rig in my own blood from a gushing facial cut (which I got by diving through a window), and worse.
But to your point, at those same games I've seen people with so much gucci gear on they literally couldn't move, and couldn't play longer than 20 minutes of a 12-hour day let alone a 24-hour op.
But for base quality, crawling through the bush is enough to total some lessor gear, and even damage the higher-end gear.
