Description[]

The Steel Shovel is a Tool that can be used to dig into the earth, creating holes in the ground and harvesting resources in the process. It can also serve as a mediocre melee Weapon in a pinch.

Uses[]

As a Tool[]

When using the Steel Shovel as a tool, the following actions can be performed:

  • Harvesting. Using the primary click (default left mouse button) will dig with the Steel Shovel, hitting any item or block that is targeted by the crosshairs and within range. This will allow you to dig into the earth, harvesting Resources with each use. Shovels are the most effective tools for harvesting soft earth-based blocks such as Gravel, Clay Soil, Sand, Snow, or Forest Ground. Shovels are also the most effective tools for harvesting Cobblestone Rocks and Cement from the Pallets found in various POIs.

As a Weapon[]

  • When used in combat, the Steel Shovel is a very ineffective, short range Melee weapon. Due to lack of perk influence on this tool, it only gets the basic damage and dismember chance bonus from Strength attribute.

Repair[]

The Durability of the Steel Shovel deteriorates with each use. When its Durability reaches zero, it becomes unusable until repaired. Repairing the Steel Shovel requires 1 Repair Kit. Repairing restores its Durability back to Max Durability.
