The Compact Nitron is a thrown explosive weapon variant used by the Pathfinder class in Tribes: Ascend. It can be unlocked for 160 Gold or 18000 XP.

"Like the Impact Nitron, Compact Nitrons deal very little damage but force flag drops. This variant has significantly less knockback, but the compact size allows 1 extra nitron to be carried" In-Game Description


The Compact Nitron is a thrown belt item capable of forcing enemy players to drop the flag. This weapon will also force the player to drop the flag themselves if caught in the blast or used to self-propel. Due to the reduced knockback using this nitron for a speed boost is less effective than the standard Impact Nitron. The extra ammo capacity makes it ideal for chasers giving them one more chance to hit a capper.
