The Shovel is a melee weapon which flings enemies away and bombs back toward their sources.

Details[]

  • Special Effects:
    • Bombs hit by Shovel strikes are sent back as if they were parried by a shield. However, bomb power is 20% of shield-parry values (18 base damage instead of the usual 90 base damage).
    • The second hit in the combo knocks enemies back, and the final hit sends them flying away for 1 second.
  • Breach Bonus: 0.7 / 0.5 / 2
    • Base Breach Damage: 127.5 / 78 / 375
    • Base Breach DPS: 363
  • Combo Duration: 1.6 seconds
    • First Hit: 0.55 (0.4 + 0.15 + 0)
    • Second Hit: 0.35 (0.2 + 0.15 + 0)
    • Third Hit: 0.7 (0.4 + 0.3 + 0)

  • Legendary Version:
    • Forced Affix: Better Secrets
      • "Secrets found in the walls and ground are of increased quality."

Trivia[]

  • The Shovel may be a reference to Crypt of the NecroDancer, specifically to Eli, whose playstyle involves pushing bombs around.
  • It may be a weapon themed after the Graveyard biome as the in-game Graveyard is where common villagers are buried, and the shovel is presumably used to dig their graves.
  • The Shovel may also be a reference to Shovel Knight, as it can also be found by breaking a wall beside the campfire where you first find the King Scepter.
