The Gladiator is a sticky explosive weapon used by the Brute class in Tribes: Ascend.


The Gladiator fires a sticky round which detonates immediately on contact with enemies dealing 920 damage (on a direct hit only). If the round impacts any other surface it sticks and detonates in three shockwaves, dealing 460, 330, and 200 damage to anything caught in the blasts. Although each successive shockwave is less powerful, it has a larger radius than the last.
