That's a really good question. Where's John Walsh when you need him? He'd find those dasterdly bandits.

    It didn't really get explained properly, did it?
    I assume it's a once a day kind of thing, but maybe it's utterly random.

    Also the human silver statue guy that walks on my board walk has moved into Springfield.


    I guess he got board of being there and was like hey I want to party with the rest also. So he's just wandering my Springfield which is pretty cool.


    Anyone else notice this.

    Has anyone gotten more than the one so far? I have not.

    My Human Statue went wandering, too, but I put him back on the Squidport. If he wanders again I'll try sticking him on my Treasure Island of tiles that I put up and see if that works.

    The dialogue indicated that it was once a day.

    They're kinda funny, the way they blink red. I'm looking forward to act 3 super boss a la m'nthst'r (sp?). (I'm not asking anyone to spoil that with file-reading truth. Just enjoying a thought.)
    Here is my signature. Or maybe it's not.

    Anyone else able to find him today? I tap on the "go to" button and it takes me to the Wild West saloon, then when I fade out everything but the characters... nothing. Searched the whole town this way... nothing. Another glitch, EA?

    Has it been 24 hours since you tapped the last one? I don't think it matters whether or not you have a Challenge to tap one, they only appear every 24 hours.

    Tbh i'm not sure whether it has been 24hrs since the Bandit originally arrived in the town, but i have one of those daily quests that ends in donuts to complete which wants me to capture him, but at the moment he no where to been seen, so as you say i may have to wait till tonight before i see him :)

    Ah, is that what it is. Maybe they should have a counter to tell you when your 24 hours is up, like they do for neighbor visits.

    I haven't been able to find him so I've canceled that task and got a different one instead that I can do. I haven't got time to keep searching for him!!

    I'm gonna cancel my daily task too- I haven't seen one since the update and the initial dialogue/task with that first one. I'm not going to spend days trying to finish a daily task because the stupid thing never appears.

    The initial Bandit quest glitched on me and I got it three times in a row.
    That was last night, eager to see if it will happen again this evening. I know it may not but I seem to get 'repeat' quests often. Not a bad bug to have. lol

    I have capture a Big Bandit as my daily task too, but I'm not going to cancel it. I'm pretty sure that clicking on the challenge will take me directly to my big bandit once my 24 hours is up and I won't have to search for him at all. I don't mind letting those daily challenges pile up; you can have three active ones at once.

    I cancelled that task too as I couldn't find him. Now I have a sidebar task to find him but he has still not appeared. I even looked in Krustyland. Please not another glitch...

    nah, you just have to hunt for him.... turn off everything but the people layer and scan around... easier to spot him that way.

    I just a popup saying that the big bandit is loose. Don't cancel the task guys and gals. You'll get an alert saying when the big bandit is around.

    You're welcome.

    Thanks, Jose! I was wondering when he'd show his face again.

    How much do we get for capturing him, anyway?

    I turned everything off and found him. He was moving very slowly behind a building.
