Internal name shovel
The K.L.A.S. shovel is used by military forces for a variety of purposes. The shovel can be found among survivalists, freedivers, campers, hikers, gardeners and war re-enactment groups. It can also be used as a weapon - sharpen the edges and you'll be cutting through flesh and bone. If you use it correctly, that is. Which you don't.

The K.L.A.S. Shovel is a melee weapon available in PAYDAY 2. It is available to all players at reputation 4 who have the Gage Shotgun Pack DLC.


The K.L.A.S. Shovel has a strong knockdown but low damage output. It is also plagued with a rather slow charge time.


  • It is recommended that players prepare a charge before attacking enemies.
  • If a player wishes for more damage, it is recommended that they get Berserker, Pumping Iron and Bloodthirst Aced from the Brawler skill tree.
  • If a player wishes for more knockdown, use Martial Arts Aced.


Everyday I'm Shovelin' Everyday I'm Shovelin'
On the Nightclub heist, kill 25 law enforcers using your shovel. Unlocks the Short Barrel for the Raven shotgun.
(Note: Only the killing blow needs to be dealt using the shovel; enemies can be weakened with another weapon first, then finished off.)


  • K.L.A.S is an abbreviation used by the Swedish army and stands for "Kort, lätt attackspade" which translates into "short, lightweight attack shovel". The "Shovel" suffix becomes redundant in this written-out form.
  • The achievement "Everyday I'm Shovelin" is a reference to the song Hustlin' by Rick Ross, and the revised version of a similar line in Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO.
