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

The Compact Nitron is an unlockable belt item for the Pathfinder. The Compact Nitron is a variation of the Impact Nitron, the only difference being that it has a smaller splash radius, and the player can carry one extra. While the in-game description says that it has less knockback than the Impact Nitron, it does not, it is the same.
