"An old, old sight, and yet somehow so young; aye, and not changed a wink since I first saw it..."
- Moby Dick, Herman Melville

The Captain Ahab harpoon gun can be purchased from Two-Hat Jack, relatively early in the game, for 9000 Overcharge.

A Herker is an OD mutant whose arm has fused with an excavator shovel. They are several times the size of a normal OD, and appear as a large red blip on the Player's radar.

While most commonly spawned in the Old Factory district, Herkers can be difficult to find. Rather than searching for a Herker, try finding a mission containing one and going from there. The easiest is the side-quest: "To Cure a Case of Scabs." Kill the nearby Herker, restart the mission, and repeat. Herkers are also commonly spawned during Night Defense and Chaos Squad.

Before upgrading, the Captain Ahab lacks a high ammo capacity. For this reason, some may find it more efficient to widdle down the Herker's health with an alternate weapon, and switch back to the the Ahab for the kill. However, I would advise against this.

Each hit you get with the Captain Ahab slowly levels it up. Unloading a whole clip of harpoons into a Herker should raise the weapon's level, and further increase it's ammo capacity. Additional ammo can be purchased from Two-Hat Jack should the need arise.
