I am quite scared
If you're playing with realistic damage, this is a very, very difficult task. You'll enter the scene with less than 10 troops against all these enemies.
I can't even imagine how could I solo a forest bandit hideout while they pepper arrows capable of 2-hit me with sniper precision.
No idea why, but my game doesn't work like this. It's kind of random, when I get this quest it ranges from 1 to 4 parties in the hideout.Though, If a Town has a Quest "X Needs help with Bandits" this quest will Cause the nearby hideout to empty down to 1 squad.

For forest bandit hideouts, 2 parties is okay, 3 is difficult and 4 is on the verge of impossible for me.
Now for field battles, I can beat as many bandits I would like to.
sea raider is much easier I noticed. I tried a steepes and got my ass handed to me lolI got a Steepes Hideout with about 50 in it. The first area you try to take out just one, and run back to a bottle neck and you still have 20 swarming a group of 9 no matter how trained and armored your guys are. nope not happening, just stupid to be limited to 9 dudes taking on 50 steepes bandits including their top their raiders.
And I been wiping out Steepes hideouts to farm horses for days before I ran into this one. Usually its like 30 enemies total. okay that's fine, that's like 15 on 9 in the entrance, then 10 on 9 in the cave and 5 at the end, then a boss and 2 escorts to finish. fair tough challenge even using tactics developed after raiding my 20th steepes hideout. but even 25 tier 1 and 2 steepe bandits on 9 troops all at once is stupid.
Problem Is only with forest hideout: you can get 10 of them from the start shooting at you. I think player spawn point should be more distant from them.Hah. I've seen Sea Raider Hideouts with 75+ Which is all fine and dandy when you go "Hey they melee" Except that the hideout makes like 15 of them sit together at a table with no way to pull just one.
Realistically though, if you "Retreat" from the hideout after killing a bunch of bandits some of them will die, some will be wounded, and you can just attack again the next night. With them having much lowered numbers from the ones who died last round. And repeat if necessary to lower to an acceptable number to finish.
Note that the loot you get is based off the last run you do. So if the first 2 you kill 15 each, and in the last you only kill 5. The loot table will deem you to only get 5 Bandits worth of loot.
