Usage & Description

The EMP is only effective for depleting shields, as it is completely harmless against flesh or armor. It is particularly powerful against enemies with powerful shields or have health composed entirely of shields (such as Guardians), but is otherwise of rather niche use.



  • The grenade mod's name and special effect refer to the disruption in electronic equipment caused by an electromagnetic pulse.
