You will Find D-Dog in a forest his mother is killed by few poachers. D-Dog is nothing but a wolf cub and when you see it do not ignore him he a persistent, he will start following you. After he becomes a very helpful asset as he grows up. He’s special ability is he can search enemies and allies faster on the radar without your effort. He can also be a distractor to enemies and you can easily sneak in their patrolling tents and take them down.


D-Horse is a White horse who acts as a buddy as well as a means of transportation. He can be used to explore the desserts and also very cheaper than motor vehicles. You can pet him, he is quite and convenient. He is special ability is pooping(Seriously!) A vehicle which drives over his poop is in a big mess as the car/vehicle will be out of control. It will spin and stop while everyone inside the will be dead. You also have the option to hang on sides on the horse to avoid being suspicious while passing enemies.


Huey created D-Walker which is a hybrid of robot and vehicle. The D-Walker acts best during the combat and stealth(You need to use it). He can also act as a mini tank if you equip him with weapons(protection+ carry more stuff). The D-Walker makes more noise when he walks so you can use his tiny wheels to move silently. Also marks and takes down the enemies which are out of sight in radar.

Hint: Try Picking up the enemies and punch then with the robot hands.

Note: If you are wearing shields, helmets or body armor it will be ignored by D-Walker.
