Bearded Pollnivnian bandits are non-player characters that can be found in the northern part of Pollnivneach. Players are able to pickpocket them with a Thieving level of 45, yielding 40 coins and 65 Thieving experience. They can be knocked out using a blackjack after completing The Feud and having a thieving level of 30, doing so successfully allows you to pickpocket them, knocking out a bandit also grants 10 Thieving experience. If you fail to blackjack a bandit, you will take 50 life points, and the bandit will attack you. Bearded Pollnivnian Bandits wield blackjacks. They should not be confused with normal Pollnivnian Bandits, who instead wield steel scimitars. If trying to talk to them after completing The Feud, they will attack.
Challenge Bug Warning: Does not always count towards the "Beard Tax" Thieving challenge even with successful pickpockets.
