The Bandit is a common enemy encountered throughout the entire game. Bandits fire a red, round bullet one at a time that hits for 3 HP. They aim their weapons afterfiring their weapons, resulting in what appears to be them firing in completely random directions.
Bandits sometimes spawn in groups around explosive barrels. Shooting the barrel will kill them all if they are within the explosion radius.
They don't do any damage when touching the player. Staying close prevents them from shooting, as they try to run away and keep distance.
Bandits are the only enemies found in every level before reaching the Throne pre-loop (with the exception of the Frozen City levels where they are replaced by their festive counterparts, the Snow Bandits)
