From Grand Theft Wiki

Nitrous, short for nitrous oxide (N2O) and sometimes abbreviated as nitro, is used to boost the speed and acceleration of a vehicle in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and The Ballad of Gay Tony.

GTA San Andreas

Nitrous is a vehicle component that can be installed on modifiable vehicles in the three available mod garages around the state. When installed on a vehicle, the "fire" button can be pressed to activate nitrous. Nitrous will increase the speed and acceleration dramatically, along with exaggerated motion blur and bright blue flames spewing out of the exhaust pipe(s). After a few seconds the nitrous exhaust ceases and the vehicle may revert back to its normal top speed. The boost is followed by a delay that won't allow a player to use another boost right away.

To know when you can fire a Nitro boost again is to look at the exhaust after a depleted boost. If the fumes are colored blue, the boost is still in its "delay" state. If the fumes revert back to the normal, grey fumes, then the Nitro is ready to be fired again.

All mod garages have nitro as an available part. nitro comes in three "strengths:" 2x, shown with a small tank; 5x, with a large tank; and 10x, with 2 small tanks. Each option determines how long you can use a Nitro boost.

The Ballad of Gay Tony

Nitrous is limited on during races. The boost can be controlled. A small bar next to the radar will show the amount of nitrous available. The amount will regenerate after some time.

  [Source]

N'tho 'Sraom[1] was a male Sangheili assigned to the Special Warfare Group of the Fleet of Retribution.

Contents

Background

'Sraom is the youngest member of his Special Operations unit and is one of a growing number of Human sympathizers amongst the Sangheili youth. He was born into the Sraom lineage, and lived in the state of Sraom. He is a fairly typical young male adult Sangheili, he began compulsory military service at the end of adolescence, and remains unmarried with no close, non-familial relationships outside of his martial order. N'tho 'Sraom refused to stand indolently by while the Prophets replaced Sangheili units with Jiralhanae packs, and now bears deep resentment toward those politicians who landed his kind in their current predicament.

Although N'tho 'Sraom's romanticized nationalism is emblematic of all Sangheili, he has developed a healthy respect for Humanity, not for their physical abilities or martial prowess, but for their audacity and resolve.

N'tho also appears to have been vital in giving intelligence on Covenant military structure and tactics, such as information on the Brute Chopper.[2]

N'tho appears to be a Minor Domo Elite, but could also be SpecOps due to the color of his armor (Minor is blue, SpecOps is black in Halo CE and dark blue in Halo 2). [3]

Trivia

  • It should be noted that his name lacks the ee suffix associated with Elites in armed service. However, when Rtas 'Vadum was mentioned on Usze's page, the ee suffix was also missing. This is probably because the Elites are no longer listed in the Covenant army/military, and they no longer use the ee suffix.
  • N'tho 'Sraom is a playable character in Halo 3 as the third player character over either Xbox Live or System Link and Campaign Co-op mode
  • The character's name first appears in the Bungie.net article describing the Brute Chopper, even before the announcement of four-player co-operative play (Though then he was called 'N'thro 'Sraom).
  • N'tho has apparently been a vital source of information for the UNSC, detailing Jiralhanae rank structure and, in particular, the specific role the Choppers play within the Jiralhanae ranks.[4][5]
  • It is interesting to note that N'tho never opens his right eye. This may be just a glitch, an oversight by Bungie, his eye may have been damaged in a fight, or he's just blind in that eye. Sometimes when he is killed he will reappear with both eyes open but they won't blink like the Arbiter and the other AI Elites.
  • In Halo 3 Co-op mode, when he activates his flashlight, the light is simply there with no point of origin, no visible flashlight is on his shoulder. This also applies to Usze 'Taham as well.
  • If you look closely on N'tho's left or right arm, you can see three or more Forerunner Glyphs on it.
  • His weapons, along with his Elite companions, are holstered backwards.
  • Occasionally, 'Sraom will spawn without a helmet.

Runescape

(Redirected to Nitroglycerin article)

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

Nitroglycerin is a members-only quest item. It is used in Digsite Quest to make Chemical compound along with ammonium nitrate, ground charcoal and arcenia root to blow up bricks blocking the path below digsite. It is obtained by using a vial on the barrel with a skull mark on it near the panning point, and is brought to archeology expert to learn that it's nitroglycerin. If the barrel is not already opened a trowel can be used on the barrel to open it. After finishing the dialogue following filling the vial, the barrel will become resealed, so it is recommended that you skip the dialogue by using more vials on it, assuming you're filling more than one vial. When you're done with the barrel, step or teleport away without going through the dialogue so you won't have to worry about reopening the barrel on your next visit.

Before the archaeology expert identifies it, nitroglycerin is known as unidentified liquid. Identification of the liquid increases the damage to 35.

File:nitro_dialogue.PNG File:NitroglycerinExamine.PNG

Beware! Players who drop the vial will take 25 damage if the vial is unidentified, or 35 damage if the vial is identified! You can get rid of the item safely by alching it, asking the Wise Old Man in Draynor Village to rid your bank of useless quests items, or by dropping them in a free-to-play world. Players can no longer place it on a table. Many players using the Dharok set use this effect to lower their hitpoints, in order to activate the effect and hit higher. When a player drops this, a message will say Ow! The liquid exploded! and the player will receive 25 or 35 damage. However this item can no longer kill you after the update from 21 April 2009.

Mass production

Players may produce nitroglycerin for self-injury. To do this as fast as possible, players should do the following steps:

  1. Withdraw 28 vials at a bank. Equip a Digsite Pendant and a Ring of Duelling.
  2. Teleport with the Digsite Pendant to the Digsite.
  3. Run south to the barrel(s) containing nitroglycerin. If the barrel is shut, speak to an Examiner for a trowel.
  4. Use the vials on the opened barrel. Do NOT click the "click here to continue" in the chatbox or the barrel will be closed.
  5. Run south to the Exam Centre and find the Archaeological expert. Use all unidentified liquids on him (going through the conversation is required).
  6. Teleport to Al Kharid with an Amulet of glory, Ring of duelling or teleport to sorceress garden via Broomstick or alternatively, run.
  7. Deposit the nitroglycerin into bank and repeat from step one.

Note: Step five may be omitted to save time. However, the damage dealt is reduced to 25, instead of 35.

Trivia

  • Nitroglycerin can no longer be used to kill people due to an unannounced update.
  • "Nitroglycerin" uses the U.S. spelling of the word, despite Jagex being a British company. "Nitroglycerine" is the British spelling.
  • On Earth, nitroglycerin is a colourless liquid, but on Gielinor it is orange. Interestingly, on Earth at least, nitroglycerin is sometimes mixed with dinitrotolulene to make it more stable, and dinitrotolulene is yellow-orange in colour. Gielinor's nitroglycerin seems to be similarly stabler as actually only dropping it causes it to spontaneously explode, so it seems likely it too is mixed with dinitrotolulene.
  • Players who came to regret spending 230,000 coins for the Barrelchest anchor used to sometimes activate nitroglycerin to recover the cost of the anchor. The anchor cannot be traded and can only be high alchemied for much less than 230,000. However, if the player dies with the anchor, and the anchor is not one of the items the player keeps on death, 230,000 coins appear at the player's Gravestone instead of the anchor. Some players thus used nitroglycerin to kill themselves and then retrieve the coins. Due to updates on 21 April 2009, players can no longer do this, as foods that hurts you will never kill you.
  • Once the liquid is identified as nitroglycerin, you can no longer empty it.
