Penguins are Hunter creatures which may be hunted in the Penguin Hunting Area after the completion of the quest Hunt for Red Raktuber. There are four ways to capture a penguin, each requiring a different Hunter level.

When a penguin is caught, it will turn out to be either an ordinary penguin or a KGP Agent (in-game "Kgp agent"). KGP agents can be exchanged for extra Hunter experience with the PBJ Agent across the ice from the hunter area, but many players just release the KGP Penguins as they are only worth 2 experience each. The PBJ agent will not accept ordinary penguins.

At level 60 and above, players report that it is very rare to see a trap fail using Box traps.

  • Captured penguins can be High Level Alchemised for 24 coins, and Low Level Alchemised for 16 coins. KGP Agents have the same values, so it seems there is no real difference between the two, except that the KGP Agents can be given for Hunter experience.
