The Bandits of the Black Hand Gang could be a reference to the Serbian terrorist organization known as "The Black Hand" which is most known for the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, inciting World War I. When the announcer for The Arena announces them, he mentions that they have recently been spared from execution. This is interesting because out of the seven members who carried out the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, all but one were spared from execution.
Depending on how much time players have spent levelling up, this round may be the first time players encounter the formidable, black-clad "elite" bandits.
