Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Burst and Blast can be shot as fast as one can click/press the corresponding button. Items increasing attack speed like Soldier's Syringe.pngSoldier's SyringesBgCommon.pngSoldier's Syringe.pngIncreases attack speed.
    Increases attack speed by 15% (+15% per stack).
    only speed up the reload animation of the gun.
  • You will start reloading quicker if your gun is empty rather than if there are bullets remaining in the chamber.
  • Burst does not pair well with items like Shatterspleen.pngShatterspleenBgBoss.pngShatterspleen.pngCritical strikes always bleed enemies. Bleeding enemies now explode.
    Gain 5% critical chance. Critical Strikes bleed enemies for 240% base damage. Bleeding enemies explode on death for 400% (+400% per stack) damage, plus an additional 15% (+15% per stack) of their maximum health.
    and Tri-Tip Dagger.pngTri-Tip DaggersBgCommon.pngTri-Tip Dagger.pngChance to bleed enemies on hit.
    10% (+10% per stack) chance to bleed an enemy for 240% base damage.
    because the stacks wear off during the reload animation.
  • Rapid-firing Blast drastically increases the spread of the rifle. Pacing shots is necessary for hitting targets at long range.
  • Both Serrated Dagger and Serrated Shiv reset Bandit's aerial momentum, which can be used to prevent fall damage.
  • Use Smoke Bomb to get the most use out of Bandit's Backstab passive, allowing you to reposition behind enemies while they're distracted.
  • Since Smoke Bomb moves Bandit upward while in the air, it can effectively be used as an extra jump to increase your mobility or to prevent fall damage.
  • Using any Bandit ability while airborne and under the effect of Smoke Bomb will make him instantly exit invisibility and perform a mid-air jump from Smoke Bomb ending.
  • While Desperado has the potential for higher damage, tokens resetting after each stage makes it difficult to be useful in later stages. Lights Out's ability to reset cooldowns is much more reliable.
  • The Explosive Tar Pots in the Abandoned Aqueduct can be shot with Lights Out to complete the Classic Man challenge easily.

Lore[edit | edit source]

A few drinks here, a few laughs there. A few more drinks. A sleight of hand – and bang, keycard access to the loading bay of the Safe Travels. The camo suit can handle the rest.

A secret mission means low profile – and low security. Besides, everyone is wearing environment suits before we leave orbit. How would they know?

I mean, it’s the goddamn Contact Light. Think of how much those higher security chests could flip for! And some of the militech on that ship? Howdy hey. That’s probably what some of the other boys were thinking, sneaking onto that ship in the first place.

My coat? 

I’m a thief - not a plumber. Of course I’m bringing my coat.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Bandit's "Chilly" skin is a reference to Ibzan - the main antagonist of Hopoo's other game, DEADBOLT. The skin bears a close resemblance to him, the name refers to the constant cold that skeletons feel, the shotgun model is replaced with a Semi-Auto Shotgun and the knives are replaced with kitchen knives.
  • Before the Anniversary update, Bandit was in the game's files as an unused survivor. Notably he was the most complete unused survivor.
  • Bandit's Burst primary ability has no rate of fire cap, and is only limited by the 4-shot cooldown.
