I agree totally. Having scavenger is also nice in any mission where you score points for looting panoplies. I find it comes up quite a lot. I've also had bandits go on antenna smashing sprees in destroy objective missions. Having infiltrate,. Ma2 and a DA weapon makes them pretty good for this. I wouldn't say bandits are an auto include but they usually pull their weight for me. Plus they have one of my favorite models in game.
