Penguin roaming areas[edit | edit source]

Rock (Penguin Hide and Seek).png

By comparing the clues given by Larry or Chuck and the actual penguin sightings, the roaming area of each of the clues can be determined. At different times, different clues may be activated by the same penguin. Sometimes multiple penguins may be activating the same clue.

The information regarding area should not be used as a basis for your search due to the penguins' large roaming areas and that they are in different places in each world. However, penguins cannot change costume during the week. The only exceptions to this rule are during the Hallowe'en events, when some penguins change to Pumpguins (Pumpkin penguins), or during the Christmas Events, when some penguins change to Snowguins (Snowman penguins).

Locations[edit | edit source]

Penguins spawn in the same locations on every world but can wander freely across the map. The penguins' wander area is often extremely large and only limited by obstacles such as water, fences with no openings, and impassible terrain. General clue areas for each penguin are given by Larry, located in the Ardougne Zoo near the penguin exhibit, or Chuck the polar bear after Hunt for the Red Raktuber. Clues for each penguin are also given by the penguin spy device. The invisible penguin respawns every few minutes in any of the 1-point spawn locations. Its movement is not limited by some obstacles, such as water and rough terrain, but is limited by other obstacles, such as trees and walls (similar to Implings). The penguins reset weekly on Wednesdays shortly after 00:00 UTC.

This week's penguin spawn locations are given in the table below. Click on the "Toggle Visibility" button to see a map of each penguin's wander area.
