Usage & Description

With the Crader EM-P5's increase in character movement speed, it can help with farming bosses or just for running across maps.

While the damage of the EM-P5 is outmatched by other legendary SMGs, the EM-P5 does synergize with Zane's Violent Momentum skill.


  • The item card for the Crader's EM-P5 states that the weapon has 2 zoom magnifications even though it does not have an Alternative Fire mode.
  • The character's movement speed is increased by 20%.
  • Hotfix 3/5/2020: Critical hit damage increased by 80% while airborne.
  • If Moze is holding the weapon when she goes into Iron Bear, Iron Bear's movement speed will also be increased.
  • The EM-P5 drops 24% more often from The Agonizer 9000 on Mayhem 4 and 5 compared to Mayhem 6 and above. This is because the Backburner drops at Mayhem 6 and above, reducing the drop rate of the EM-P5 from 7.5% to 5.7%.
