— Description

The Gravedigger (referred to as Shovel in development) is a melee weapon that was added to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered in the December 13, 2016‎ update.


The Gravedigger is only available through completing the Gravedigger bounty collection in the Depot. It is functionally identical to the Knife. However, unlike the Knife, the Gravedigger can be equipped in a matter similar to that of the Combat Knife featured in previous instalments. The Gravedigger resembles a shovel used for digging trenches, or as the name suggests, a grave. The Gravedigger is used as the final weapon in the Gun Game gamemode.

When an enemy is killed with the Gravedigger, the weapon becomes covered in blood.
