the templar (also named as advanced gladiator in the game's files) is a special enemy in the rise of the dark nemesis series, and a new installment of the fatality update.
similar to gladiators, templars are much more powerful versions of them. wearing more heavy armor, templars are completely immune to gunfire.
templars use the strategy as gladiators. however, they are much more difficult, as they have a faster reaction time. UNSC personnel are advised to keep their guard and strike the templar from behind, regardless of weapons they are carrying.
templars are very rare and can be found along with other imperials, and on rare cases they are used as royal guards for one of the 10 proxy variations.
- templars are a reference to the extremely powerful satyr in greek lore.
- they are also a reference to the necromorphs in the dead space series.
- 3 templars can be a potentially dangerous situation (or PDS for short).
