Terminology

In video gaming, Chest-high walls are a trope often associated with first-person shooter video games. A common joke is that players can tell when a boss is about to be encountered, because the terrain starts to feature chest-high walls.

Such walls can be nearly anything, from geological strata, to crates, to dedicated artificially-constructed infrastructure.
