|| For an overview of shovels in all games, see Shovel.
The shovel is a weapon which is added to Fallout 3 with the Point Lookout add-on.
It is commonly used by the swampfolk. Shovels can only be repaired with other shovels and the alien epoxies found in the Mothership Zeta add-on.
The shovel can successfully strike about 500 times from full condition before breaking.
