Ok, I admit it is probably the worst pun ever in the title. But that aside here is another weapon mod. This replaces the ever unpopular cricket bat with a shovel. It uses the sounds from the frying pan to sound more gongtacular. I might actually bring the V_model down so you can see the top better.

Pros:
- looks awesome - sounds perfect - gives the best reason ever possible to use that ugly cricket bat
Cons:
- makes every katana sounds like a light saber (this can be undone by deactivating the shovel in your addon list) >> -5.0 for that very awful problem
Conclusion:
A simple, but awesome showel which brings you the best reason imaginable to use the ugly cricket bat and it's SO MUCH FUN to mess some zombies up with it. But, unfortunately, it makes your katana - no matter which one - sounds like a light saber. This problem doesn't only appear on me, it appears on everyone I've asked about it... and this were ~50 people (!). Fix that problem, send me a message and I will use your showel further and give you a better review for it. It's an awesome weapon with an awful bug, but - for those who use light saber katanas it doesn't matter - it's worth it.
Pros:
-Very nice-looking design -Excellent use of the frying pan sounds
Cons:
-No HUD icon -For whatever reason, replaces katana sound effects with lightsaber noises
Conclusion:
I'm really torn with this review. I absolutely love the skin, but until the katana sounds are removed I'll be uninstalling it.
Pros:
-Adds a shovel to the game which I think is far more common in the united states than a cricket bat. -Makes the clang sound when you hit infected.
Cons:
-No hud icon
Conclusion:
I love this mod because I find that the cricket bad is not a very common thing to find compared to the shovel. Sure there is no hud icon yet but that is minimal compared to being able to whack infected with a shovel. Bravo on a brilliant mod that I will endlessly use.
Pros:
Perfect sound of impact. Real feeling like brand-new melee weapons.
Cons:
Unnecessary custom sounds of katana in this addon that hear like laser swords.
Conclusion:
In case that you have used custom katana voices, remember to remove redundant voices in this addon. Anyway this is awesome addons for all you guys like a cricket bat.
Pros:
-Replace the weapon I hate most -No bug/problems -Shovel -Original
Cons:
-Sound
Conclusion:
Good job. But,one question: Where do you get the models for these replacements?

I installed the shovel but for some reason it doesn't replace the cricket bat in-game, help?
Any chance I could request a version of this mod that replaces the Katana instead of the Cricket Bat? For some truly bizarre reason my game just loves to saddle me with Katanas when it comes to melee weapons, especially in places where it doesn't make sense for a Katana to be! But a shovel? FAR more common!
All these people are saying it's the light saber sound. mine turned into a baseball bat ( it still looks like a shovel.)
it has the sound effect of the baseball bat and also has the fire trail behind it when it swings. (my baseball bat mod does that)
I repaired the mod so there's no lightsaber sound for the katana
I can upload it if you don't mind.
