The bandits took him in. They nursed him back to health, this ravening, hulking monstrosity. Eventually he came to watch over them like family. It was a stupid plan, taking in this monster. And now it's your problem.

The Mag Bandit is a boss character featured in the upcoming game Madness: Project Nexus 2.
He was revealed on September 7, 2014 when the game's Kickstarter reached 500 backers.
In the alpha and beta builds of the game the Mag Bandit features in two boss fights, first in front of the city gates in a fight with Hank, second in the sewers in a battle with Sanford and Deimos. He primarily attacks by tossing bounders and swinging improvised weapons such as lampposts. Despite the notes on the concept art neither he nor the Bandits have successfully entrenched themselves in the Nexus tower. Among other bandits, he is referred to as, "The Hungry Boy"
The Mag Bandit has 3 phases, his first phase only consists on him pommeling people and slamming the ground. In his second phase, he runs towards a pile of scrap and garbage and throws them at you. In his last phase. He runs to a light pole, uproot it, and use it as a weapon. During all of these phases, bandits will constantly spawn, you don't have to worry about them since them will sometimes get accidently hit by the Mag Bandit. You can use the weapons dropped by normal bandits to deal more damage to the boss.
