Ducks are small animals which can be found in rivers or lakes. They are a fairly good way to start training the Magic skill with low-Level Curse spells and even Strike spells.

If ducks are next to the shore it is possible to hit with a normal Melee weapon, however it is uncommon for them to be there with the exception of the Fishing Guild docks, Falador Park, and the River Lum in Lumbridge.

For melee it is only otherwise possible to use a halberd, however Ranged or Magic is most reliable. Ammunition will be lost if the ducks are not on land.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The species of duck is very similar to a species in the real world—the mallard.
  • In the River Lum, if ducklings are following the duck you killed, they will say "Eep!" and swim away, most likely that it was their mother. However, soon after, the ducklings will find another "mother" and start following that duck, and if you kill that duck they will say "Eep!" again and find another duck to follow.
  • At the area close to the chicken coop north-west of Lumbridge Castle, when ducklings are following a duck and you kill the duck, the ducklings will say "Cheep cheep!" and then "Eep!"
  • During the 2021 Christmas event, variant ducks and drakes were used in Falador. These variants wore santa hats, walked around the frozen White Knights' Castle moat and Falador Park puddles, and were unattackable. One female duck in the park was also replaced during this time.
