This weapon is a heavily modified Field Shovel that has many perks that never imagined before. The basic fundamentals are the same as Shovel, however, the engraved and designed the outside to make it feel like a mechanical beast.
In addition, it has a Born Beast 3000 technology that allows the player to change his melee weapon as they want.
- High damage-dealing on the secondary attack.
- High primary attack slashing rate.
- Capable to change his melee weapon as the player wants.
- Low damage-dealing with the primary attack.
- Has a slight delay when performing the secondary attack.
- Melee weapon that can be changed is limited.
- Available in all CrossFire versions.
- Faster Movement Speed.
- Quick Hand
Fast switch to other weapons (does not stack).
- Lucky Draw (aka Born Beast 3000)
- This effect allows the player to switch to all variants of the Field Shovel (except QT, Blue Diamond, Born Beast Noble Gold, and Eternal Dragon), and also switch to other weapons that aren't the Shovel series, but those melees will only be the basic variant (default texture).
- There is a rare chance that players will get the Rubber Chicken melee as well.
- There are differences between each CrossFire version regarding the melee system, so this weapon can't switch to all melee. So far, confirmed stock Melee that can't be obtained via this perk is Katana, Iron Hammer, Brick, Chaos Hook, and Jungle Knife.
- Players are not required to own any melee or have any melee on their bags because the melee switching uses melee available in the system and not in the player's inventory.
- While using other melee switched by Shovel-Born Beast, the player can revert back to this weapon by pressing the "Reload" button.
- This feature can be enabled/disabled in the Inventory.
- Goodbye Brother
- Enabling this feature to use a special RMB attack that swings the Shovel-Born Beast upward, sending opponents it hit flying back for an exciting sense of victory. Turning this off will allow players to use normal Shovel animation.
- 120% EXP bonus for the owner.
- 30% EXP bonus for everyone in the same room.
- 20% GP bonus for everyone in the same room.
Lucky DrawThese are the possible melee weapon that can be switched when the Lucky Draw (aka Born Beast 3000) effect is activated.
Note: Each version may be different.
- While all the new Field Shovel (after Xmas variant) adapts the new rounded blade model, the Shovel Born Beast goes back to the classic pointed blade model, albeit with a slight modification to fit its VVIP value. Later, it is following by Field Shovel-Eternal Dragon.
- On April Fools Day 2016, CF West released a pre-order of the Shovel-Born Beast where you could buy the item permanently for 250,000 GP. However, this was just an April Fools prank and the pre-order was removed the day after. People who spent their GP to buy items will have their GP back (equivalent to how much GP they spent) and get to keep the items they bought.
- In CF Vietnam, this weapon can be used to obtain a default Knife, however, the Wooden Hammer is not available.
- After its release in CF Vietnam, the Shovel Born Beast's function is glitched and can't be turned off, but it has been fixed in later patches. Also, on its first release, the LMB attack is slower but the same with the original variant, but it also has been fixed in later patches, adapted the Field Shovel-Ultimate Gold's stats, making it a bit inferior against said variant.
- CF West mistakenly lists "Goodbye Brother" perk as "Quick Hand", which is copied from BC-Axe Beast.
- Again in CF Russia, players will receive a 30 day M4A1-XS Ancient Dragon if they bought the Shovel-Werewolf at a discounted price and if they already own a VVIP weapon, they will receive a 30-day CheyTac M200-Graffiti.
- Also, this VVIP is named Werewolf, a mythological human with the ability to shapeshift into a wolf-like creature.
- In CF Philippines, players will receive a 7-day AWM-Blue Pottery and AK47-Blue Pottery when they purchase/gift the Shovel-Obsidian Beast at a discounted price during the promo period. There are also 2 VIP packages offered, one with The Fates for 2200 eCoins and the other with M4A1-S Obsidian Beast for 3000 eCoins. Once bought either of the two packages, they will receive free 15 capsules of the aforementioned 7-day weapons.
