- "A shovel perfect for a good old face flatting. When you hold an Ace of Spades, you hold perhaps the most vital instrument mankind has ever known. Without a shovel, you can't dig roads for travel, dirt to make huts or a hole to bury incriminating evidence... hypothetically speaking."
- — Danny "Blackjack" Li reviewing the Ace of Spades.
- "Lethal landscaping tool. Dig your opponents an early grave."
- — In-game description
- The name "Ace of Spades" is a reference to the Motörhead song of the same name, which is also featured in the zombies map Gorod Krovi as a musical easter egg.
