  — Item Description 


The G.I. Shovel is the first melee weapon that could be bought in the shop. It is currently priced at 550 GP and was meant to be restricted to a higher rank instead of being able to be bought by anyone (though the plan was dropped). The shovel's stats are equal to the NX-bought Machete and the GP-bought Kukri melee weapons. The G.I. Shovel has a slightly larger damage, but slower swing speed. The shovel also has a further strike range, which meaning the wielder can outrange a player holding a M9.

Unfortunately, the Shovel has fallen in popularity, as more players opt for the slightly-weaker but much faster Sickle. Right-Clicking is the most effective mode of attack, due to its ability to kill with a click of a finger.
