OGame Wiki

A headhunt is the name for hiring a strong player to attack an enemy.

You need to notify a Game Operator when a headhunt is taking place, or it may be considered as pushing.

You cannot hire a strong player to launch IPMs ( Interplanetary Missile ) for you as that does not count as an attack. Paying a higher ranked player to launch IPMs for you counts as pushing.

A good place to hire hunters or advertise yourself as a hunter would be the Ogame board (forums). When a hunt is complete, you need to PM the moderator of the forum.

When members from alliances get attacked they ask for help on fighting back.
