What is a HAT file?

A HAT file is an image meant to be used as a hat in Duck Game, a multiplayer 2D duck battle game. It contains a 64 x 32 pixel .PNG image that, when selected in Duck Game, appears atop a duck's head. Duck Game players often create and share custom HAT files online.

More Information

You can create custom Duck Game hats and export them as HAT files using the Quackhead web tool. If you export and download multiple HAT files, the files will be packaged in a .ZIP file. Extract the HAT files from the ZIP file and place them in the Duck Game folder, which is located in the game's Steam installation directory.

How to open a HAT file

HAT files cannot be opened outside of Duck Game. Quackhead allows Duck Game players to create custom hats, but it does not allow players to open existing HAT files.

To use a HAT file with Duck Game, place the file in Duck Game's Duck Game directory, typically located at:

C:/​Program Files (x86)/​Steam/​steamapps/​common/​Duck Game
