The Explosive Nitron is a thrown explosive weapon used by the Pathfinder class in Tribes: Ascend. It deals extra damage and knockback compared to the Impact Nitron but does not force flag drops. This weapon can be unlocked for 20 Gold or 2400 XP.


The Explosive Nitron works like a grenade for the Pathfinder class. When thrown it travels in a short arc and detonates upon impact.
