The Shovel Location & How to Get Them
In order to get the Shovel you need the Zipline hook to travel on the rope to the other side including the Rebreather since you need to swim through a hole underwater. You will also find an air canister to refill your Rebreather. Continue exploring and you will find regular loot as well which comes in handy. Bringing batteries for your flashlight also might be useful since it’s really dark down there.
In this cave, at a body you will also find a flashlight attachment for your weapon, it’s at a dead body. Continue exploring the cave, swim again and you will eventually find the Shovel at the end. From there, the true journey starts.
