Clearing Shot

In Tribes: Ascend, a clearing shot is an explosive projectile, either a Spinfusor disk, a bolt from the Bolt Launcher, or a grenade, typically fired by the flag capper as he/she is about to make a grab. The clearing shot is meant to move a Heavy on Flag from the flag to allow an unhindered grab, as well as destroy any mines or other deployables that may be on the stand. This shot, however, is limited by the weapon's splash radius, and thus cannot clear the entire stand on many maps, so it is not a complete replacement for light offense and/or heavy offense.
