Reluctant Bandits is a common Walking Event that can be encountered if the party is without a Vehicle. This event occurs more frequently if the game is set to a harder Game Mode. The event features additional options for characters with certain Stat Combos.

The demands of the Bandits will vary depending on what the party has available, as well as the difficulty of the current Game Mode.
