Baldur’s Gate 3 includes a large environment full of mysteries and buried treasure to discover. Mounds in the soil or grass will be noticed by players that prefer to explore and uncover as much of the map as possible.
They are simple to overlook, but individuals with keen vision have a better chance of spotting anything uncommon buried in the grass. However, the party will need a shovel to dig up the mounds. Without it, the party members will be unable to search for the hidden riches and loot in Baldur’s Gate 3.

Where To Find A Shovel In Baldur’s Gate 3
Following the prologue aboard the Mind Flayer ship, you’ll wake up on a beach in Baldur’s Gate 3’s Act 1. Continue on through the zone until you reach the Overgrown Ruins. It’s close to where Lae’Zel is being held hostage.
You’ll come across a bunch of treasure seekers on your way there. They’ll confront you, forcing you to choose between convincing them to leave and killing them. After you’ve completed either task, you’ll be free to explore the remains. Make your way down to the ruins’ internal entrance, and you’ll find a shovel on the floor to the right of the door.
This is the first shovel you’ll come across in the game. Once in your inventory, you can use a perception check to dig up any mound of dirt you see. There is no other method to dig up these mounds, so have one in your inventory at all times.
Turn away from the entryway and stroll to the outskirts to the right of the ruins, with the shovel safely tucked inside your inventory. You’ll notice a pile of dirt on the ground if your perception is sharp enough. You may dig this up with your new shovel.
In addition to digging stuff up, there aren’t many additional applications for a shovel. You may, however, toss it at enemies in a fight. It deals very little damage, but it is still harmful. You may also use it to set off traps that you locate.
That’s how to find shovel in Baldur’s Gate 3 as I’ll see you in the next guide.
