Better image needed (issue: Two of the thugs in the infobox image have their clothes appearing pitch black; bad lighting. We also need a shot of the two members of Scabb's gang ID'ed as thugs in-game.)
The article, infobox or file image has quality issues that need to be rectified. Please help Fallout Wiki by editing or replacing it with a better version.
What's your rush? The boys and I here want to get to know you better.

Thugs are mercenaries in the employment of various wastelanders in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281.


They are often found in the company of various individuals such as criminal Andy Scabb or NCR deserter Layla and act as henchmen. Thugs are essentially mercenaries because they most of the time will not engage in conversation with the Courier.

Layla's thugs were with the NCR but deserted them and heard Primm was "ripe for the picking."

During Someone to Watch Over Me, one of the thugs present can be tricked into leaving his post with a Speech check, which will make it easier for one to break in and search Andy Scabb's room.
