Farm For Your Life: Golden Shovel, Axe, Scythe, and Hammer

September 19th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Having trouble locating the four golden tools in “Farm For Your Life”?  No need to panic…”Dad” has you covered.

First, it’s important to note that you’ll only need the Golden Scythe to beat the game.  The Golden Hammer, Shovel, and Axe are extras and aren’t required to beat the story.  With that said…

Golden Scythe – You’ll acquire this from the Scientist near the end of the game automatically, as part of the last official mission.  After luring a zombie onto the treadmill with special cob, the Scientist will give you the Golden Scythe to dig up the herb in the graveyard (which is located in the forest).

Golden Shovel – This is the first tool you’ll need to acquire the Golden Hammer and Golden Axe.  Using a regular shovel, dig up the purple flower across the bridge (once you have the carpenter construct it).  Easy as 1-2-3.

Golden Hammer – In the graveyard (located in the forest), go to the mausoleum in the very back and dig up the ground with the golden shovel.  It’s there you’ll find the Golden Hammer.

Golden Axe – Using the Golden Hammer, destroy the rocks across the bridge (once you have the carpenter construct it).  The axe can be seen sitting further beyond those rocks.

After that, find the chicken statue in the upper left and break it with the golden hammer.  You’ll be rewarded with a golden chicken of sorts.

There you have it!  If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment below.

    For some reason, whenever I go into the forest, I can’t select specific tools, they just automatically select based on the activity, but this makes finding the golden hammer difficult because I can’t select the shovel to dig. Any help would be great.

        Same here, no tools when I go into the forest. Is it because I cut the plant down already before it was time?

          I used the hot keys associated with them.
          Try pressing “1” to use the shovel then dig as usual.

    I’m having the same problem. Selecting with the hot keys doesn’t work either.
