Shovels are designed for blocks of dirt, sand, gravel, snow, and grass. When a block is destroyed by a shovel, it will be left on the ground for any player to pick up. Crafting a shovel is not a requirement to progress in the game, but they are very useful to have, as they allow a player to destroy some blocks faster than with bare hands. All shovels degrade as they are used for their intended purpose. However, a shovel will lose Durability at twice the rate if it is used to attack Mobs. Shovels made with better materials will last longer. In addition, a shovel can be enchanted with useful qualities, such as "durability" or "silk touch".
Shovels can be crafted out of the following materials (in order of lowest, to highest Durability):
- Gold (has almost half the durability as wood, but is faster than a diamond shovel)
Shovels can also be used to flatten grass into Grass Paths, by right-clicking on the grass block (PC), or holding down the action button over the grass block (MCPE).
Place two sticks vertically, with either Wood, Stone, Iron, Gold or Diamond on the top.
