Are bandits valid targets for folks in the treehouse, or equipped with sniper rifles/grenade launchers?

I can't find anything in the rules to indicate that they are...but am hoping I'm missing something...thematically it is very odd if they're not.

Similarly, explosive traps sufficient to kill all zombies but don't impact survivors or bandits in the same location at the same time somewhat boggle my mind. Am I missing a rule somewhere?

I don't have a problem with this - they are traps after all. I believe each round represents about a week in real terms, so setting traps to be triggered even when you are not present (I Am Legend anyone?) seems quite thematic.

Okay, I'll give you that, I mean the survivor is 'there' if the place is overrun, but the survivor could reasonably shelter from his own team's bomb. What a bout the bandits? Maybe the survivors put up an "Achtung Minen!" for the benefit of their own team and the bandits read it.

What about targeting bandits with a sniper rifle or grenade launcher, or from the treehouse?

A large portion if not all of the weapons specifically say zombies on the card, whereas bandits follow the same rule as attacking survivors so no. The grenade launcher for example says 'kill 2 zombies' rendering useless vs survivors or bandits. There may be some weapons that can be used but I'm not going through all the cards looking for an example when the rules and text on the cards are pretty obvious.
