Cowboy is a generic name used for cowboys in Wasteland 2.
Cowboys primarily engage in cattle herding and trading as occupation, protecting their cows and themselves even by using firearms.
6 constantly flatulating cowboys led by Mr. Taggart can be found at the eastern end of Temple of Titan. They will only fart if the player talks to them. Two cowboys can be found at the motel in Damonta
The cowboys farting after eating beans is a reference to the film Blazing Saddles. One of the cowboys asking, "How 'bout some more beans, Mr. Taggart?" and the latter's response are a reference to a scene from the film.
