- Although thought to be unreachable, the bandit bridge next to the first bandit camp can be reached, by jumping on the various metal steps, and then grenade jumping over a large gap to get on top. The top has no loot, although if a bandit died on top of the bridge, their weapons will most likely be still up there. The bridge also serves as an excellent sniping spot.
