-Moby Dick

Anyway, you're going to need to hunt for some Herkers a.k.a. the Great Orange OD. They're one of the more common special OD, easily recognized by their giant size and excavator shovel arms. Herkers tend to travel in groups with lesser, easier to kill, OD. I tend to find a few of them around the Old Factory district. They appear as large red dots on your radar and tend to move around slowly. If it's moving around quickly, it's a Mugger or a Winger, and if it's not moving at all, it's a Spawner.

Once you hunt one of these beasts down, you must kill it. How you do that is up to you. Personally, I would erect the Flaming Compensator, set the Herker aflame, widdle it down with a weapon like the Dirty Harry, and finish it off with a Captain Ahab shot, as it has very little ammunition when it isn't upgraded. If your Captain Ahab is Rank 5, it might be quicker and easier to just turn the Herker into a pincushion by ejecting all your harpoons into the Herker as quickly as possible.

Herkers are rather common at towards the end of a Night Defense.

Quicker "Dangerously Cheesy" Method: Thanks to iiTz xFIREL0RDx for this one! You can replay the side quest "To Cure a Case of Scabs", which at the very beginning, has a guaranteed Herker spawn on one of the nearby rooftops. Press the menu button then press "X" to replay the mission from the beginning, where you can quickly and easily get some Herker kills. If your Captain Ahab is maxed out, you should be able to kill a Herker in three shots if you are right in its face.

Do this four more times and the challenge is yours! Happy hunting!
