Enemigos are the goons of Hex Hatfield, who runs one of the largest crime rings in town. They try to prevent Cactus McCoy from getting to the home of the emerald by their various weapons. When an Enemigo is defeated, he drops his money and even his weapon, if the player is lucky. The probability of getting his weapon will increase as Cactus McCoy juggles him more. They appear in every area.
