Duke Nukem pig cop art by T. Szakolczay

Generic pig cops


Duke Nukem 3D was a deliberately trashy, lowbrow action/shooter video game released in 1996. It was big back then, since the gameplay was good, the levels intriguing, there weren’t too many good FPS  games, and the stupidity wasn’t as grating as it would soon become.

These blokes are part of the opposition. Like, opponents.

Powers and Abilities

Pig cops are big and tough, with a big shotgun. They sometimes use speciality vehicles.


Pig cops are members of the LAPD, who were mutated by the aliens during an invasion in order to kill the remaining humans in LA. They got their arses kicked by Duke Nukem, obviously. Hail to the king, baby.

Though it was hard to see with the resolutions back then, the inscription that looks like “L.A.P.D.” is actually “L.A.R.D.”.


They’re aggressive, brutal bastards. I mean, more than before.
