The Smasher was able to destroy all obstacles within a level (including trees, walls, buildings, etc) and was removed early in the Game Development cycle. His removal was due to the team realising, that it would be difficult to balance a Character who was able to remove all of the stage elements. The Smasher was revealed to the public during Developer Stream #72, which also mentions the removal of the Survivor's "climb" ability, a remnant of which is the rooftop collision of the Killer Shack.
