Game information

Helmet Gladiator

A gladiator with a full helmet

They are quite strong, they walk at a medium speed and take twenty hits with the sword to kill. Their attacks include punching the Spartan back when they get too close, delivering medium damage and momentarily stunning the Spartan. They can also pick up the Spartan and throttle him, crushing his body, then throw the Spartan onto the ground, leaving him momentarily unconscious.

Gladiators are quite tough enemies to fight in large groups, as they attack when the Spartan gets too close, and they can throw the Spartan back. Although the gladiators are strong, they still can get stunned by the Spartan's special attack. There is another variation of gladiator as well. This variation has a helmet that will protect it's head from attacks.
