Thugs

Overview

Thugs is a standard power set that is a primary set for Masterminds.

"Street-wise and extremely loyal to the right leader, Thugs make the perfect Henchmen for a manipulative Mastermind. The Rogue Isles are a perfect breeding ground for Thugs, and 'street-cred' can go a long way. Thugs are no stranger to urban warfare, and they are quite proficient with various weapons. Most Thugs aren't particularly resistant to any damage type, but their lieutenants posses good Leadership skills to harden all your Henchmen."

Possible Pistols Weapon Customizations.
