The Big Heist Lodge is a bar located in the Kharidian Desert Bandit Camp. It contains about 10 bandits who will all attack at once if any one of them are attacked. This is a Multi-combat area, so caution should be used when fighting. The bandits can be pickpocketed to gather additional lockpicks and anti-poison potions to open the chest for the Desert Treasure quest. The bartender only sells Bandits Brew for 650 coins.
This area is usually crowded with players either wearing an item of Zamorak or Saradomin. The average experience gained here averages around only 50k, contrary to popular belief of 200k experience per hour. It is highly recommended to use prayer even with 99 defence and Barrows armour. It is recommended to use a Saradomin Sword here because of its prayer bonus and because it is a Saradomin item. Pures are often found at this bar because it is the fastest place for them to train efficiently.

Even though bandits aren't best for the most experience, it is recommended for lower levels to train thieving here because of the many bandits available for pickpocketing. It is HIGHLY recommended to bring bones to peaches tablets or runes to cast bones to peaches if it is unlocked (Mage Training Arena).
For lower levels, it is recommended to come here to train prayer by burying bones because they are often scattered on the ground when other players are killing the bandits for experience.
