A Dust Bandit Leader is much deadlier than the average Dust Bandit. They are occasionally seen leading packs of Dust Bandits and primarily carry a Ringed Sabre. Due to their deadliness and crimes, they have a bounty of 2000 cats with a variation of 1000 +/-. Disabling a Dust Bandit Leader and bringing them into a Town Police Headquarters will reward the player with the bounty. New players should avoid Dust Bandit Leaders unless they receive help from the AI factions or have several squad members to band together. About 3 members with 5 attack and defense skill seems to be enough for taking on a boss alone without suffering too much damage.
