In this case, the digital cesta is used to catch an energy ball and throw it at a ceiling. The opponent tries to catch the ball with his/her cesta and throw it back to their opponent in the same fashion. If one of the players of the ring game fails to catch the ball with the cesta, the ball will hit one of the segmented ring of their platform and [[derez]]. The player then must avoid the newly-made gap in their platform until the remainder of the game. Players who fail to do so will fall to their death.

A Cesta is a weapon used by programs almost exclusively in a ring game. Its function is very similar to the jai alai cesta: to throw a ball at high speed against a wall, causing it to rebound at the other player. In a ring game, a player uses the digital cesta to catch an energy ball and rebound it from the ceiling. If the other player fails to catch the ball, its strike derezzes one or two ring segments in the player's platform, causing a dangerous gap which remains for the rest of the game. The cesta is thus both the means of attack and the player's best defense against a fatal plunge from a vanishing platform.

Crom and Kevin Flynn, who faced one another in a deadly match in TRON, are the two of the ring game's most notable players.

In TRON: Uprising, sentries were seen to wear cestas as they practiced an updated version of the game.

Trivia

  • In a training montage in one version of the script of TRON, Ram taught Flynn and other new conscripts how to wield their cestas.
