In game terms, this is for weapons that penetrate the level geometry, especially the parts that one would not expect to be penetratable by weapons, e.g. soil or large boulders.

Although ballistics covers this in part, this tag is specifically for weapons that penetrate them regardless (e.g. in games where balistics are not simulated, and in those that they are, includes penetration that defies logic - e.g. penetrating 3 meters (10 feet) of concrete).
