  • Amount of the damage per horizontal strike depend on player-to-ZED angle. Horizontal strikes do no more than 75% and not less than 50% of the base damage value.
  • Blockable damage types: Bludgeon / Slashing.

Strategy

The Crovel is a quick and versatile melee weapon, capable of dealing both Slashing and Blunt damage.

A light swing will decapitate any basic enemy (Gorefast, Stalker, Crawler, any type of Clot.)

Despite its favorable handling, the Crovel deals low damage and lacks a reliable stun, and should be replaced with the Pulverizer by the time Scrakes might spawn (Wave 3 on Long games).
