The Reef Bandits are a naval faction added in the 4.5 Patch. They operate yellow/orange colored boats. There are two main groups of Reef Bandits, one friendly to the 95th Rifle Company and one that is not, and both are led by Reef Bandit Chiefs.

Reef Bandits are often encountered alongside enemy Groupers.


There is little knowledge about the history of the Reef Bandits. All that is known is that long ago the Sovereign Navy decided to expand its territory directly into the islands belonging to the Reef Bandits, thus waging war with these once-peaceful people. Unfortunately, the Reef Bandits were not able to stand up to the Sovereign Navy's might and in turn lost their land. The Reef Bandits are now forced to survive by salvaging what is left from a ship after a conflict.

Eventually, Captain Pike and Lt. Morgan take it upon themselves to look for a new home for the homeless Reef Bandits, with motivation for this task stemming from the guilt of Pike, who originally assisted the Sovereign Navy in driving out the Bandits from their first home. After various islands were examined, Pike and Morgan eventually decided that Raptor Island would be suitable for the Bandits' new home because it was large and didn't have people already living on it. Seeing as there were numerous predators that inhabited the island, Raptors being the most prominent, Morgan tasked Ramsey to exterminate most of the remaining hostile wildlife, which included Mammoths, Boars, and Spiderwasps.

With the help of Pike's assistant, Karin Winters, who tries to understand the difficult dialect of the Reef Bandits, Pike and Morgan are able to convince at least one group to begin rebuilding their culture on the island.

The following locations are associated with Reef Bandits:


  • If the Reef Bandits had to be compared to the land factions of Battle Nations, they would most closely resemble the Silver Wolves, since both factions employ mostly makeshift weaponry (Jet Ski's, Tugboats), and have a bandit/pirate attitude about them.
  • On another note, they also resemble Raiders, in that both factions remind the player of Native Americans (with their differences from modern-day society and tribal features).
