The Shovel is a weapon in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.
Shovels were introduced in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. A squared shovel is located near the entrance of the Vercetti Estate, upon the completion of the mission Two Bit Hit. Squared shovels are reserved for burial purposes. Fans have claimed that this shovel was used in burying Ricardo Diaz or Sonny Forelli, although their graves are unseen in the game. This is likely to be false, as the shovel can be seen prior to Diazs' untimely demise. Other players theorized that Diaz used it to bury his foes. It still remains possible that Tommy and Lance were ready to kill Diaz before the time that he was killed, so it was hidden for later on when it would happen.
