The Gladiator Pit is an arena used by the ghouls of Los for entertainment. Hieronymous and his brother Salieri were the ones who managed it. Anyone could participate in fights for money; however, there is some specially prepared combatants. These include some aggressive fanatical ghouls from the Church of the Lost, some poison dogs released for fight, some captured radscorpions from the Crater and female raiders from Carbon Mill. However, the most dangerous opponents were deathclaws, probably unleashed on the cult by super mutants and later captured and taken to the arena. The champion of the Gladiator Pit is a mad wasteland stranger with a powerful plasma weapon.
