—In-game description

The Jagunco is a revolutionary outlaw that is available to Brazil once the "Jaguncos" Home City Card is sent, and can be trained at Stable, Fort, Galleon/Fluyt, and Saloon.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Jaguncos behave similarly to other revolutionary Comancheros, able to build Livestock Pens, gather herdables and train Cows, but their stats are more similar to Rifle Riders

As all revolutionary "Comancheros", Jaguncos feature a unique hat, and also a rifle instead of a revolver

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Jagunco shares the Outlaw Rider portrait, even though the in-game human model uses the Outlaw Rifleman skin (with small variations on the coat and hat) and the horse model uses the Outlaw Rider one.
  • The in-game name is written incorrectly. The correct form is written with a cedilla (Jagunço) and not with a C.

History[edit | edit source]

Also know as cangaceiro, the Jagunço was in northeastern Brazil, a fugitive criminal or any violent man who lent himself to the paramilitary work of protection and security to any influential individual (eg, farmer, politician) and as a consequence, was hidden from the law enforcement by said influential individual.

They're also the equivalent to the North American plantation overseer, as the Jagunços watched over the slaves in brazilian plantations, being responsible for the safety of the farm, farmer, his family and the slaves. They also served as a search and capture force when slaves fled.
