Description Convars Keyvalues Flags Other Weapons


weapon_shovel is the entity name for the shovel weapon found in SMOD, a counterpart to Gordon's trusty crowbar.

Primary Fire: Quickly swings the shovel back and forth with one hand. If airborne and facing down far enough, each attack will propel the player upward.

Secondary Fire: Thrusts the shovel forward. If airborne, this attack will pull the player forward a bit.
