The fertilizer shovel is unique shovel which is added to Fallout 3 with the Point Lookout add-on.

CharacteristicsEdit

The shovel has one of the longest reaches of any melee weapon in the game, making it effective for fending off large groups of enemies. The fertilizer shovel is great for literally whacking your enemies heads off in free-aiming. The shovel's poison damage stacks with each hit, so massive amounts of damage can be piled on quickly. It can be repaired with other shovels.

DurabilityEdit

The fertilizer shovel can successfully strike about 533 times from full condition before breaking.

LocationEdit

You can get it from the tribal Croatoa (keeper of the punga fruits at Ark & Dove cathedral), with the Child at Heart perk, or by passing a speech check after asking about his 'secrets'. You may also kill him and retrieve it from his body, but this method is not recommended, unless you have already completed both the Walking with Spirits and Hearing Voices quests. It does -4 HP for 10 seconds on strike, likely due to the fertilizer it was used with. That, and Croatoa has warned the player not to cut themselves on it for "it will make you sick."
