Ducker 2 is the second incarnation of the "Ducker" series of unmanned, all-terrain, artillery machines. These two-legged mechanoids are a common enemy type seen in Konami's Gradius/Nemesis/Life Force/Salamander/Parodius video game shoot-em-ups (aka, Shmups). Ducker models are popular and produced on numerous worlds throughout the cosmos, usually for military or law enforcement purposes, although they also see limited usage in industrial and commercial capacities.
In Nemesis, the pilot of the Proteus 911 (aka, Vic Viper/Warp Rattler) will have to contend with many enemies, both organic and mechanical, including Ducker 2s, during the mission to neutralize the intergalactic villain, King Nemesis.
