Bandit (NPC) chathead.png

Bandits are attackable NPCs, which are found at the Kharidian Desert Bandit Camp. These bandits will automatically attack any player that is wearing an item associated with Saradomin or Zamorak, as bandits are descended from the followers of Zaros, who were hunted down by Saradomin and Zamorak. Many players use this mechanic as a way to efficiently train their Combat skills. Players will wear a god-affiliated item, and then proceed to be attacked by the bandits. This allows players to easily and efficiently gain large amounts of Combat experience, as the bandits will never stop attacking the player. These bandits can also be pickpocketed at level 53 Thieving.

If a player wears a Saradomin item and approaches a bandit, they will shout "Time to die, Saradominist filth!" and become aggressive towards that player. If a player wears a Zamorakian item, they will shout "Prepare to suffer, Zamorakian scum!" instead. If a player attacks other bandits, the bandits will exclaim "You chose the wrong place to start trouble!" and become aggressive towards the player. Saradomin and Zamorak items are the only god-related items to have this effect on the bandits, because they do not have a grudge against the other gods of RuneScape.

AFK experience rates from bandits range from 30k to 70k xp per hour depending on levels. They are one of the most popular training spots for members. A Ring of life will reduce the risk of being killed if the wearer remains AFK for too long, or eliminate the risk entirely if the wearer is above level 70 in Hitpoints.
