|“||A sturdy shovel that is very useful for a wide range of jobs, from filling sandbags over digging trenches to using it as a close-combat weapon; splitting heads and bringing hurt to the enemy.||”|
|― Heroes & Generals|
Like all close combat weapons, the Schanzzeug has very limited range so you must get very close to your enemy to kill them. Also, be aware that you cannot actually dig trenches with the shovel. The best way to get kills with this is to sneak up on an unexpecting soldier and headshot them with this shovel. In some cases, your enemy may require 3 hits to the torso with the Schanzzeug in order to be eliminated.
