These thugs are lowly mercenaries that enjoy pillaging.
Desert Thugs are the equivalent of Goblins from the original Kingdom Rush: the weakest enemies in the game and by far the easiest to defeat. They are so weak that even in numbers, they pose virtually no threat, except as meat shields against special abilities for other enemies.
- Dwarven Howitzers and DWAARPs can kill them in one shot, increasing the effectiveness of Artillery.
- Try not to waste high powered attacks on them, such as triple-charged Archmage Towers.
