The way the Ratchet & Clank wiki capitalizes words has changed; therefore, this article should be checked, and, if necessary, capitalization should be fixed.
Thugs-4-Less Elite Brutes were elite versions of the normal Thugs-4-Less Brute. They were even larger and stronger than Thugs-4-Less Brute Class IIs. Elite Brutes appeared in Prison. They had a Plasma Gun, Petrol Bombs and a Homing Ring as weapons. The ring attached to Ratchet to guide fire. The best thing to do is shoot the Thugs-4-Less Elite Brutes (while strafing) until the Homing Ring disappears. (It disappears once you beat the Thugs-4-Less Elite Brutes)
