The Crovel Survival Tool is the Berserker's starting weapon. As its name implies, it is a combination crowbar and folding shovel. Unlike most other Berserker weapons, it has two differing attack types for its light and heavy attack: slashing damage and blunt damage, respectively.

Notes

  • Amount of the damage per horizontal strike depend on player-to-ZED angle. Horizontal strikes do no more than 75% and not less than 50% of the base damage value.
  • Blockable damage types: Bludgeon / Slashing.

Strategy

A quick and versatile melee weapon, capable of dealing both Slashing and Blunt damage, decent enough that it can be used for earlier waves to skip straight to Tier 3 weapons.

A light swing can reliably decapitate lesser ZEDs; Gorefasts, Stalkers, Crawlers, and all types of Clots, and a well-aimed heavy swing can decapitate your immediate surroundings.

Despite its favorable handling, it deals rather low damage and lacks decent crowd control capabilities, and should be replaced with higher tier weapons by the time Scrakes and Fleshpounds might spawn in.

Fairly light, taking 4 blocks of weight in the inventory. If you aren't a Berserker and you have the space, it can be worth bringing one into the Boss round for parrying attacks, as it has better damage mitigation than knife. However, this shouldn't be relied on as a means of mitigating damage.
