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.
- In real life, this is more commonly known as an E-Tool (Entrenching Tool).
- In real life the G.I Shovel flips out and is very sharp
- Some people find the shovel noob when infact it is the exact same as a kukri
