Dutch and Portuguese
The Jagunço speaks Portuguese using the Organ Gun's dialogue files.
- Even though the in-game rider uses the Renegado model with a different hat and coat, Jagunço reuse the Comanchero's icon and horse model.
- Before an update, the Jagunço's in-game name was written with a C instead of the correct cedilla.
Jagunços are fugitive criminals or people with a violent background who lent themselves into the service of influential people such as farmers and politicians to provide protection and security of their estates and slaves. Consequentially, jagunços are often sheltered from the law enforcement by their employers. Their name is taken from the Portuguese zarguncho which refers to a short lance-like weapon of African origin.
The term would later become, in northeastern Brazil, a synonym for cangaço.
