Dead Island Weapons

The Spade is a Dead Island weapon. Normally, it is a tool used for moving dirt. The spade is different than a shovel. It is relatively weak weapon similar to a paddle.

It is a quest item required to complete the Six Feet Under quest. In Moresby's Saint Christopher's Church Owain asks the heroes to find a spade or shovel so that he can bury the dead. Shovels are always found at the resort and Moresby gas stations, but Owain will only accept a spade. Owain will NOT accept a rusty spade.[1][2]

[edit] Trivia

  • The only difference between a spade and a shovel is the scooping tip. The very bottom edge on a spade is completely flat. Shovels are used for digging deep into the earth, while spades, with their flat tips, are used for moving dirt and other materials from one place to another. Spades are also used for evening the depth of a garden bed by leveling the soil.[5]
