The Shovel is a weapon in Dead Rising.

It is an earth-digging spade, like those used in gardening and landscaping. It is an extremely weak weapon and should be avoided. It has the same strength as toys, such as the Stuffed Bear, Rat Stick, Toy Laser Sword, and Mega Buster.

This weapon's durability is increased with the Engineering book.


  • Primary Attack: Tap 360 X button to perform a horizontal swing that rarely kills a zombie in a single hit.
  • Secondary Attack: Hold 360 X button to perform a downward thrust with the shovel blade, as if digging. If performed over a prone zombie, this attack will sever a zombie's head from its torso, killing it.

Using the two attacks in a combo is advised when using this weapon, first knock the enemy down with the primary attack, then while they are on the ground use the secondary to defeat them.


  • Frank is shown with a shovel on the back cover of the Xbox 360 game case.
