Rhinomen, in the wilds of Rubi-Ka, are a low level mob, all below level 125. They can be found in missions, however, up to very high levels. There is anecdotal evidence, also, for high QLs of armor dropping from the relatively low level Rhinoman Chiefs and other such mobs in Varmint Woods.
Rhinoman society appears to follow patterns that existed in early Earth history and up to the middle of the 20th Century in some locations that were more remote or had access to fewer resources.
Rhinomen are somewhat unusual in that they are often passive; not attacking until provoked, and that they have villages of many huts and campfires, which almost always have a Dyna Camp in the center. Furthermore, most Rhinoman Dynas are in these villages; far less numerous are the small clusters of Rhinomen wandering around a single pole in the ground with a skull on it. Higher level Rhinomen are more likely to be aggressive.
According to game canon on the Anarchy Online Editor News, Rhinomen were introduced to Rubi-Ka by the Eco Warriors, or at least the Eco Warriors claim they did. The Eco Warriors, roughly speaking, object to the results of the terraforming done by Omni-Tek that created all the species currently living on the planet, and insist that the humanoid breeds must leave the planet to restore it to balance. It is unclear, if it is even true that they introduced Rhinomen, what the reason was: were they attempting to rectify mistakes that had been made, or monkeywrench the system that had these mistakes? Perhaps they intended the Rhinomen to be the new sentient inheritors of the planet.
Rhinomen in the south of Aegean have erected a statue of an Eremite, the target of the Infestation Aegean mission, presumably to honor the Eremite as a totem animal or deity, or appease it (their numbers in the camp decreased at about the same time).
The weapon QL is the same as the Rhinoman's level.
