Goose Goose Duck: Roles – Explained

Who's who?

Goose Goose Duck is not your ordinary social deduction game. While it’s almost always compared with Among Us, Goose Goose Duck amps it up by a couple of notches by having a total of 45 roles. Being familiarized with all of them gives you a serious edge as you can have better strategies that can guarantee you victory no matter which role you end up having.

What are all the roles in Goose Goose Duck?

It can be a bit overwhelming for new players, so we’re here to explain all roles in Goose Goose Duck. We have divided them into three: those who play in favor of the good guys which are the Goose, those who play for the bad Ducks, and those who only meddle with the game and will win if neither Goose nor Duck are successful with their objectives.

For the Classic game mode, only the two basic roles apply: Goose and Duck. However, for other game modes with expanded roles, more special roles are added.

Below are all the roles of those who are with the team of Ducks, who are basically like the Impostors in Among Us. Ducks need to kill all of the geese in silence to win as they sabotage various areas on the map. Ducks can also just avoid being caught, killed, or voted out until the end of the game. Most ducks can also use the vents to travel around the map. If you’re a Duck, you can fake doing tasks to disguise yourself.

It’s also possible to be on neither side of the geese or ducks in the game. When you land on any of the roles below, it means you have your own set of objectives. It’s trickier to be successful in these roles, but what’s great is that you do not need to collaborate with anyone but yourself. Your goal is to meddle with the geese and the ducks and selfishly achieve your objective to win.

Role (Duck)
Objective or description
Dodo Bird
Get voted out to win.
Dueling Dodos
Complete all your fake tasks to be able to kill the other Dodo. Once the other Dodo is killed, get voted out to succeed.

Keep swallowing players as they die when a meeting is called. Be the last survivor to succeed.
Infect every single player in a round to win.
Eat corpses to win.

We recommend that new players begin with the Classic game mode to first get the hang of this highly addictive game. Once you master the basics and have familiarized yourself with the special roles, you can enjoy the other game modes more and have better chances at winning, no matter what kind of role you end up having.
