The Shovel is a melee weapon tool you can use to kill some enemies in Lethal Company. Here’s everything you need to know about the Shovel in Lethal Company.

Hold the left mouse button and release it to attack small enemies such as Hoarding bugs using the Shovel. You can also use the Shovel to disrupt turrets.
Is the Shovel worth it in Lethal Company?
The Shovel is a decent tool for basic defense against small monsters. On the other hand, don’t expect to take out dangerous enemies such as the Girl in a Dress or Forest Keepers.
The Teleporter is one of two ship upgrades featured in Lethal Company. Purchasing the Teleporter unlocks the ability to teleport players with some limitations.
How to get the Teleporter in Lethal Company
You can get the Teleporter by spending 400 credits via the Store page in the Terminal. We recommend farming with two or three players to earn enough to purchase the Teleporter.
How to use the Teleporter in Lethal Company
You can use the Teleporter to teleport players out of the abandoned facility. However, players lose all of their items when in use. To use the Teleporter, press the button next to the Ship controls.
Is the Teleporter worth it in Lethal Company?
Overall, the Teleporter is worth having as a means to avoid dangerous monsters but is not helpful for anything else. In short, because you lose all items when teleported, it’s not practical for fast travel.
The Loud Horn is the one ship upgrade you can buy to add to the ship. Using the horn creates a loud noise that draws creatures in.
How to get the Loud Horn in Lethal Company
To get the Loud Horn, you must buy it from the Store menu inside the Terminal. The Ship horn costs 150 credits.
How to use the Ship Horn in Lethal Company
You can use the Loud Horn to lure creatures to the front of the ship. To use the Loud Horn, hold the Loud Horn rope inside the ship. Doing so starts the horn, and any creatures nearby will move to the front of the ship.
Is the Loud Horn worth it in Lethal Company?
The Loud Horn is a decent upgrade that makes getting back to the ship late at night and avoiding monsters easier. We recommend that players watching the Terminal use it when creatures such as Eyeless dogs or Forest keepers roam around the ship.
The Laser Pointer is an equipment item you can find while searching for Scrap inside the Abandoned facility.
How to get the Laser Pointer in Lethal Company
You can get the Laser Pointer randomly if one spawns inside the Abandoned facility.
How to use the Laser Pointer in Lethal Company
You can use the Laser Pointer to check for large drops. However, the Laser Pointer is unusable in foggy, steam, and blizzard conditions.
Is the Laser Pointer in Lethal Company worth it?
The Laser Pointer is not that useful in Lethal Company as it is relatively easy to check for large drops if you have a flashlight. Because of this, we recommend simply the Laser Pointer should you find one in Lethal Company.
The Stop Sign is one of two melee weapons players can use in Lethal Company.
How to get the Stop Sign in Lethal Company
You can get the Stop Sign by looting it when searching for Scrap. Unlike other weapons in the game, you can not purchase the Stop Sign.

To use the Key, equip it to your hotbar and left-click on a locked door.
Is the Key worth it in Lethal Company?
The Key is worth picking up in Lethal Company if you don’t already have the Lock Picker. The Lock Picker is reusable and provides a permanent way of opening locked doors. However, we still recommend carrying at least one or two keys on the ship as a quick way to open Locked doors.
The Flashlight is one of two options for light sources in Lethal Company.
How to get the Flashlight in Lethal Company
You can buy the Flashlight for 15 credits in the Store menu inside the Terminal.
How to use the Flashlight in Lethal Company
You can use the Flashlight by equipping it with your Hotbar and pressing the left mouse button to turn it on. The Flash Light provides up to 7m with a max range of 12m. However, the Flashlight gets blocked by visual obstructions such as Toxic fumes, blizzards, and steam.
Is the Flash Light worth it in Lethal Company?
The Flash Light is decent for a starting light source at a low cost. I still recommend grabbing the Pro version of the Flashlight for the increased range that can help you see better and farther.
The Pro Flashlight is a step up above the regular Flashlight but with a steep cost.
How to get the Pro Flashlight
You can get the Pro Flashlight by spending 60 credits inside the Terminal Store menu. The Pro Flashlight provides an increased range of up to 12m with a max range of 20m.
How to use the Pro Flashlight
You can use the Pro Flashlight by equipping it to your hot bar and pressing the left mouse button.
Is the Pro Flashlight worth it?
I recommend grabbing the Pro Flashlight over the normal because the range is too good to pass up. The range also helps a lot in checking for fall hazards or any hidden mines/turrets.
The Lock Picker is an automatic solution for opening locked doors in Lethal Company.
How to get the Lock Picker in Lethal Company
You can get the Lock Picker tool by spending 20 credits in Lethal Company via the Store menu page inside the Terminal.

Once you place the Lock Picker, you must wait around 28 seconds for it to pick the lock on the door. After the Lock Picker finishes picking the lock, it will drop to the floor. Pick the Lock Picker back up to avoid losing it.
Is the Lock Picker Worth it in Lethal Company?
The Lock Picker is worth picking up for the utility of opening locked doors at a low cost of 20 credits. However, you should keep a key or two, as 28 seconds can waste time in certain situations.
The Boombox is a small radio that plays music.

How to get the Extension Ladder In Lethal Company

The Zap gun is a weapon that players can buy to immobilize certain creatures.
How to get the Zap Gun In Lethal Company
You can get the Zap Gun from the Store for 400 credits. I recommend saving up and waiting for a sale when you can.
How to use the Zap Gun in Lethal Company
You can use the Zap Gun in Lethal Company to stun and temporarily keep enemies from moving. To use the Zap Gun, press and hold the left mouse button when near a creature. While holding the left mouse button, move the mouse left and right to control the Zap Gun’s beam. The Longer you manage to control the Zap Gun, the longer the creature remains stunned. Keep in mind dangerous creatures are more challenging to keep stunned.
Is the Zap Gun Worth it in Lethal Company?
As of update v40, the Zap Gun is usable and should work as intended. Because of this, I recommend using the Zap Gun to keep fast monsters pinned down while other players escape with loot.
The Jetpack is a tool players can use to fly over large distances.
How to get the Jetpack in Lethal Company
You can get the Jet Pack by spending 700 credits at the Store inside the Terminal.
How to use the Jetpack in Lethal Company
You can use the Jetpack by equipping it and pressing the left mouse button. The Jetpack can take you vertically, and you can use the forward and backward keys to change your direction. However, you can not carry heavy objects while using a Jetpack. The Jetpack also has a chance of overheating.
Is the Jetpack worth it in Lethal Company?
The Jetpack is a risky purchase because of the chance of overheating. If the Jetpack overheats, it will explode, making it a risky purchase for new players. I recommend only picking the Jetpack up if you have a lot of credits saved up.
The TZP Inhalant is a consumable item you can use to gain a unique buff.
How to get TZP Inhalant in Lethal Company
You can get the TZP Inhalant by spending 120 credits on the Store menu page at the Terminal.
How to use TZP Inhalant in Lethal Company
You can use the TZP Inhalant by equipping it to your hotbar and holding the left mouse button. Holding the left mouse button uses the Inhalant, giving you the following buffs:
- Decreased stamina drain.
- Increased movement speed.
The buffs above come at the cost of impaired vision, which worsens with increased use of the TZP Inhalant.
Is TZP Inhalant worth it in Lethal Company?
The TZP Inhalant is worth getting to outrun fast monsters and escape to safety quickly. However, players should test and keep note of the impaired vision debuff and how long it lasts.
The Walkie-Talkie is a usable item that allows players to communicate with each other.
How to get a Walkie-Talkie in Lethal Company
You can get the Walkie-Talkie by spending 12 credits at the Store inside the Terminal.
How to use a Walkie-Talkie in Lethal Company
Equip the Walkie-Talkie inside your Hotbar and left-click to transmit audio to another player with a Walkie-Talkie. However, I recommend being careful when you speak to players, as transmitting audio will attract monsters.
Is the Walkie-Talkie in Lethal Company worth it?
The Walkie-Talkie is only good if you are playing with players who are not in a discord or Teamspeak with you.
The Inverse Teleporter is a Ship Upgrade that serves a different purpose from the regular Teleporter upgrade.
How to get the Inverse Teleporter in Lethal Company
You can get the Inverse Teleporter by spending 425 credits at the Store Menu.
How to use the Inverse Teleporter in Lethal Company
You can use the Inverse Teleporter by pressing the button next to the Ship Monitor to teleport a player out. Monitored players get teleported to a random location inside the abandoned facility.
Is the Inverse Teleporter in Lethal Company worth it?
The Inverse Teleporter is not worth getting as it can not serve as a way to fast travel into the facility. In short, if a player teleports, all of their items are dropped at the Teleporter.
The Radar Booster is a unique portable tool to help players navigate further inside Abandoned facilities.
How to get a Radar Booster in Lethal Company
You can get a Radar Booster by spending 50 credits at the Terminal Store.

Is Radar Booster in Lethal Company worth it?
The Radar Booster is worth using to help loot scrap faster, and players navigate out and in facilities. I recommend placing one near the Main exit and doorways for the best results.
The Yield Sign is one of three melee weapons as of update v40 in Lethal Company.
How to get Yield Sign in Lethal Company
The Yield Sign spawns similarly to the Stop Sign, randomly throughout the Abandon facilities on Moons. Because of this, if you want to get the Yield Sign, you must wait until you find one and save it inside the Ship.
How to use Yield Sign in Lethal Company
You can similarly use the Yield Sign like the Shovel or Stop Sign—left-click to swing the Yield Sign at enemies.
Is the Yield Sign worth it in Lethal Company?
The Yield Sign is worth picking up as it reportedly does more damage than the Shovel in Lethal Company.
How to farm money fast in Lethal Company
The best way to farm money fast in Lethal Company is to split and assign certain roles to all players. I recommend using the following tips to survive and loot scrap to make money fast in Lethal Company:
- Use the Radar: One player must be on the Radar monitor, watching and guiding the other player looking for Scrap items to sell in Lethal Company.
- Have a Loot Runner: One player needs to be a loot runner to quickly move Scrap back to the ship while the scavenging player returns with more Scrap. I recommend whoever is scavenging to leave loot for the Runner outside near the Main entrance/exit to the abandoned facility.
- Use the Teleporter: the teleporter comes in handy and can teleport anyone out of danger if the Radar is viewing them. I recommend using the Teleporter only in emergencies, as you will lose all of your items if you are teleported.
- Wait to the Last Day: Waiting to sell scrap is recommended as it will sell for the full amount of 100 percent, earning you more money if you were to sell early.
How to sell scrap in Lethal Company
You can sell your scrap by returning to the Company Building and placing items on the sell desk. After placing your items, ring the bell on the desk once to start the selling process. Do not press the bell more than once or spam it, or a monster will grab and kill you. Type Company Building or Com inside the Terminal to begin selling items in Lethal Company.
How to buy items in Lethal Company
You can buy items in Lethal Company by typing Store inside the Terminal. After typing Store inside the Terminal, type the item you want, followed by typing confirm to purchase it. For example, typing Shovel followed by Confirm will complete a purchase of one Shovel. If you want to buy another item, type it again and type confirm.
