The Gladiator is a type of elite Cabal warrior.

Overview[edit]

Gladiators are a new type of Cabal warrior found primarily in the employ of the Red Legion. Massive in stature and possessing incredible strength, agility and endurance, these fighters fearlessly and relentlessly charge enemy lines; cutting down all who stand before them with their Cabal Serveri.[1]

Gameplay[edit]

Due to their immense durability, rapid movement and highly damaging attacks, Gladiators are one of the most dangerous Cabal units. Once an enemy has been spotted, they will relentlessly charge their opponents with frightening speed in an attempt to cut them down. If allowed to get close, they can decimate a Guardian's shield and health in just one or two hits. As such, it is highly advisable to fight and eliminate Gladiators from a distance.[2]

Types[edit]

Trivia[edit]

  • During the development of Destiny, Colossi were originally called Gladiators.
  • The Gladiator's function as a melee fighter is very similar to the Hive Knights, who bear Cleavers, as is their tendency to charge into melee combat.
  • Dominus Ghaul was once a gladiator who fought in the colosseum, where he was discovered by Emperor Calus. It is possible that the reason gladiators are exclusive to the Red Legion is due to their connection with Ghaul, or perhaps they are simply upgraded versions of their civilian counterparts.
