Dinkum is a game where our character resides on an island. There are certain NPCs in the game that are related to a specific activity in the game. John is one of those NPCs in the game. He sells tools and equipment in exchange for some Dinks. John should be a permanent resident on your island so that you can buy tools from him. Purchase a Metal Detector from John by following these points:

  • Certain activities in this game require licenses. To purchase a Metal Detector, a Metal Detector License is required.
  • Go to Fletch’s tent and purchase a Metal Detecting License for 500 PP.
  • Also, purchase an Excavation License for 500 PP. This license is needed to purchase a Shovel.
  • Enter John’s Goods and purchase a Metal Detector for 6,600 Dinks.
  • Purchase a Shovel for 900 Dinks from John.
  • Now you can equip a Metal Detector and a Shovel from the Inventory.
  • Equip the Metal Detector and wander around the Map in search of the items that are under the ground.
  • When you are one square away from a buried object, the metal detector makes a sound.
  • It makes a comparatively louder sound and displays a mark when you are exactly above the treasure.
  • Equip the shovel from the inventory to dig the ground and collect the buried item.
  • Upgrade the Metal Detector License for 2000 PP to improve the Metal Detector sight to find buried items.
