KOS: Kill On Sight
Bandit: someone who threatens others players for their person gain(for items mainly)
Noob: someone who is new to a game
Bunker: A safe place to hide that is far away
Safe house: A secret house unknown to others to be the home of bandits

Why become a bandit?
In the games current state after having a good base set up it is very boring… So many turn to becoming bandits!
Only become a bandit after you have got a good base set up and have a safe house, a bunker and some allies to work with that you trust with your life!
Do not work with strangers, they WILL kill you and take your loot after a while.
Being a bandit DOES NOT MEAN KOS! A bandit will try and not kill the victim. This is to not make a name for themselves over oxide.
