Types of ducks
Many ducks can spawn on your channel, and it's your responsibility to recognize them and act appropriately.
This duck is the "basic" duck, the one that you'll encounter the most. Killing him is easy : just type
dh!bang, and it should die immediately (if you can shoot, and if you don't miss your shot).
This duck is worth 1.5x more experience (15 exp). Make sure you shoot at it first.
This duck will only give you half the experience of a normal duck (5 exp). On higher levels, it may not be worth it to shoot this duck.
This duck is just like a normal duck, but if you leave it alone for too long, instead of just wander away, it'll KILL all the ducks alive on the channel. Don't wait until it despawns !
This duck does not send a spawn message. You must be vigilant if you kill one : the duck you intended to kill isn't dead yet.
The best way to find them is by hugging the air, since this won't waste bullets.
The professor requires you to do some math to kill it. Answer the question in the spawn message. To kill it, use the
dh!pan <number> command. For example, if you see a prof spawning with
Huh, quick question, what's 16 + 91 ?
You must use
dh!pan 107 to kill it. Wrong answers WILL waste your bullet.
Do not shoot at this duck, doing so would cost you a normal duck worth of experience (10 exp), and your bullet(s)!
Instead, you must
dh!hug the duck to make it leave. Hugging ducks don't waste bullets.
Technically, a mechanical duck is not a duck, and shouldn't be shot at. They can sometimes spawn from the wild, but they are most often bought by other hunters in the shop.
If another duck spawns after a mechanical duck, the mechanical will leave silently. You do not have to wait for it to leave.
Only appears during the night. Ducks that sleep are free meat : you can't miss them, but some ducks are still awake... Good night !
However, with such a big number of lives, killing them will get you more experience than usual.
This duck will resist 1 dmg on almost (90%) every shot. To kill him, you should have at least some AP ammo equipped.
During the UN Treaty event, the armored duck does not resist shots as that would be unfair to hunters. It'll then act as a normal Super Duck, but still count towards your Armored kills !
You can see on your personal Hunter Page (
dh!me) the amont of shots an armored duck resisted.
Mothers are normal Super ducks that will spawn two new, random ducks once killed. The spawned ducks doesn't count towards the ducks_per_day setting, and may be of any type.
If a baby spawns after you've killed a MOAD, check your achievements ! You'll have unlocked
The boss is a unique duck that will only spawn on the Official DuckHunt Support server. When killed, instead of experience, you'll get a lootbox (box of foie gras) delivered to your inventory. Use it on (almost) any channel.
