Waves Ducks are going global! Coming to a street near you with a new AR game. Waves Ducks Hunt brings additional value to Waves Ducks veterans, and adds a new way of introducing the masses to the game.

The game will be launched on 20th June 9AM EST — in a one-of-a-kind event at NFT NYC and globally.

The Waves Ducks team is proud to present a completely new play2earn game mode for the Waves Ducks Metaverse:


Drawing inspiration from mobile gaming hits that take you to the streets, we want everyone’s experience to be as rewarding as possible. Existing Waves Ducks NFT owners will be the first to get FULL access to this new game mode, while new users will have limited access to the game but will still be able to take part each day.

Here’s how it will work:

It’s really simple, you will:

  1. Open the Waves Ducks Hunt site
  2. Login with your Waves Wallet to open the Map
  3. Your duck will lay golden eggs all around you on the Map
  4. Hunt down as many eggs as you can within the time
  5. Each egg has useful and valuable rewards inside

You’ll be able to take your phone and venture into the world collecting rewards that will be useful and valuable within the Waves Ducks metaverse of games and playing modes.

By owning a Waves Ducks NFT, you’ll get full access to hunt down as many rewards as you can every day. If you haven’t got a Waves Ducks NFT, you’ll still be able to hunt down rewards but there will be a daily limit on what you can collect and claim.

For NFT holders, Waves Ducks Hunt allows you to squeeze even more value out of your NFTs. Choose an NFT duck to play, it will lay golden eggs in a 15km radius around you. The higher the rarity of a chosen duck, the more golden eggs per day you will get.

Once you spot an egg’s location, go there, aim your phone’s camera and crack it open. For rewards, you could find entirely new NFTs, crypto-tokens, or Waves Ducks Metaverse items, and more. By the way, each egg has a timer, you’ll need to get to it before it runs out!

What you need to get started:

  • Waves Ducks account
  • An NFT duck of any rarity (not required for the promo mode)
  • A mobile phone with a camera
  • The spirit of adventure

What if I see another player’s egg and get there first?

Rivalry is among the cornerstones of the Waves Ducks Metaverse, so you absolutely can snatch other players’ eggs. But there is a catch! First of all, doing so is not free, you’d have to pay a small fee. And another thing is that you have a chance to fail and not get anything at all. So, if you’re willing to take that risk, go for it!

I can’t wait to start hunting. How can I join?

Waves Ducks Hunt will be available for everyone starting June 20th 9AM EST.

The game will feature a promo mode for those who don’t have any duck NFTs yet. In this mode, anyone will be able to open 7 golden eggs, 1 egg per day, absolutely free and get their feathers on the game’s precious rewards!

To continue playing after that, you will need an actual Waves Ducks NFT duck, which you can hatch in the incubator for EGG, or purchase one at the marketplace.

One-of-a-kind Launch mode at NFT NYC

Waves Ducks Hunt will be officially launching in beta at NFT.NYC on the 20th — 24th of June.
