"Impact Nitrons deal little damage, but force enemies to drop the flag."

The Impact Nitron is the default belt item for the Light Armor. This grenade deals very little damage, but has a special ability that compensates for it. If the Impact Nitron hits a player that is carrying a flag, the flag will be dropped. This is a favorite for flag chasers. If the player is carrying the flag and tries to use an Impact Nitron to boost their speed, the player will drop the flag.
