Bandit Notes

To find these notes you will need to interact with the supply crates next to each bandit champion in Kryta. The notes are in random locations, so you may need to visit multiple locations to find the note you’re looking for. You can find all the locations from the previous guide under “Bandit Invasion” and “Long Arm of the Light“.

Once you interact with the crates, you should see a prompt to collect a note. If there isn’t a prompt, move onto the next bandit location. Once you have the note, you will need to interact with it in your inventory. If you don’t, you will not earn credit towards the achievement.
