The Market Gardener is a melee weapon for the Trooper. It takes the appearance of a shovel, and deals crit if the user is currently airborne via rocket jumping. However, it has a 20% slower firing rate and a 50% holstering speed penalty, this makes it slightly harder to escape after getting a market garden in, and can't be used as an effective melee weapon. It's mostly used for a meme playstyle, known as Trollper, but can also be used as a situational bombing tool.


  • Make sure your target isn't protected by their teammates, else you might just get yourself killed with the holstering speed penalty
  • You can instantly kill any lighter classes such as a Doctor or Flanker, but it will take more than one hit against heavier classes, like Trooper or Brute
