Card Icon Passive
Life Stealer

15% of the damage dealt by the unit will be added to its life points.


Life Stealer is the unique passive for the Bandits, restoring a percentage of the damage the unit inflicts by attacking as health.

As it is a percentile, abilities and spells that increase damage dealt will boost the amount of healing the unit receives through lifesteal.

Tips & Strategies

Bandit Spearmen depend heavily upon their massive damage output and lifesteal to secure them victory. Therefore, pairing them with spells like Unholy Power Card Icon Unholy Power will enable much greater survivability.

Campaign PvE

Bandit Spearmen are strongest on maps where they can most easily benefit from their lifesteal. Maps with alot of archers or walls will prove troublesome for these units.

Random PvE

Bandit Spearmen can be called upon to bolster a push to the third tier camp, though this typically is not necessary.

PvP

Bandit Spearmen are very powerful, though easily countered. They can certainly devastate targets with their immense damage output.

Strengths

  • Can potentially reach an ATK power of 1800 unassisted by spells.

When all of its innate damage bonuses are applied, the Bandit Spearmen can put out a whopping 1800 ATK, exceeding the Nightcrawler Card Icon Nightcrawler when frenzied, but not with counter damage applied.

  • Bandit Spearmen can intercept and disrupt enemy movements
With their Bandit Spearmen Blessed Partisans Ability Icon Blessed Partisans / Bandit Spearmen Infused Partisans Ability Icon Infused Partisans ability, the Bandit Spearmen can cripple a targets movement speed, preventing them from simply running away.

Weaknesses

  • Bandit Spearmen are highly susceptible to knockback, crowd control, and ranged attacks
Being a small melee unit, the Bandit Spearmen are incredibly vulnerable to knockback and other CC. Archers and other ranged weapons make their lives much tougher.

Patch History

This card has not been changed yet, compared to its original appearence in BattleForge.

Basic Info

A second tier soldier of the Wasteland Bandits is built for striking massive creatures. Not particularly capable of vanquishing an extra-large on their own, but by attacking in groups or leaving the mighty beasts crippled, they make it much easier to kill them.

Abilities

Card Icon Passive
Steadfast

Unit is immune to knockback.


The Bandit Spearmen are totally unaffected by knockback, making knockback oriented counters ineffective.

Card Icon Passive
Crippling Strikes

Melee strikes force units to move at walk speed for 10 seconds.


Like the Scavenger Card Icon Scavenger, the Bandit Spearmen cripple movement upon striking. This makes it incredibly difficult to elude them once it lands a blow.

Tips & Strategies

Bandit Spearmen are notorious troop among the bandits for their slowing strikes and immunity to knockback. They are often more dangerous to smaller units than extra large units.

Use of Crowd Control is heavily recommended to vanquish them, since knockback does not work.

Trivia
