Rubber Duck


Introduction

Send those dirty hogs swimming with this innocuous-looking weapon.

Overview

The rubber duck is a strategical weapon which can be used to hit hedgehogs at difficult-to-reach locations of nearby water. It swims on water to the direction of the wind. Its speed increases with the wind speed. It explodes immediately when it collides with anything, so it must be dropped from a cliff or directly into water.

How to use

Make sure to be close to water or at a cliff, as it will immediately explode on impact. Pressing the Attack key (default: space bar) will drop the rubber duck.

Behaviour

The rubber duck is dropped like dynamite, explodes immediately on impact and starts swimming on water. If the rubber duck did not explode after 15 seconds, it explodes anyway.

If the rubber duck reaches the Sea world edge, it will follow the path of the Sea. If the rubber duck somehow ended up underwater, it will slowly rise to the surface.
