Thugs are a type of human enemy that appears in N.O.V.A 3.
Thugs are human males that wear camoflauged suit similar to that of the modern day desert forces and a bandana. They wear boots and most of them are bald.
Thugs use Assault rifles and Shotguns in Close range combat and Sniper rifles in long ranged combat. They take cover but can be hit when in cover. They are very easy to kill; it just takes about one hit from a Shotgun to finish them. Overall they are much like Parasites.
The Thugs were convicts and mercenaries that escaped imprisionment from Boreas and took control of the area.They freed prisoners from surronding prisions and increased there territory. Since Boreas was neutral the dominion did nothing about this.
