Bandits are commonly found all over the world, no matter how hostile the climate is. They can be found anywhere from Diamondhead to Antarctica, although their largest presence is in New Eden. Bandits possess a wide variety of equipment, ranging from standard issue Assault Rifles to Plasma Cannons. A number of bandits also seem to have access to modified versions of the Bio Rifle and Heavy Laser MG, although these weapons are reserved for the more elite units. Several groups of bandits also possess a strange teleportation technology, allowing them to warp to and from anywhere at will, although it is assumed that this requires an enormous amount of energy to execute.
Bandits frequently target Accord installations in order to steal supplies and data, often times attempting to access the Arclight's mainframes. They can also be found making camp in caves or makeshift shelters, often along with their stolen goods.
Bandits often resort to trickery and ambushes in order to accomplish their goals. They frequently set up LGV ambushes along roads, lure passersby with calls for help, and impersonate Accord personnel. They are also not above scavenging, frequently found digging through Crashed LGVs.
