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.


  • One shovel can be found at the outside entrance to the Herzog Mine.
  • One can be found at a grave, north of Marguerite's shack.
  • One shovel can be found on an island in Dove Delta next to a holotape.
  • One can be found in a safe on the second floor of Blackhall Manor.


  • Fertilizer shovel Point Lookout (add-on)- Used by Croatoa, the fertilizer shovel deals poison damage over time to any target it hits.
