EMP is a legendary grenade mod in Borderlands 3 manufactured by Hyperion. It is obtained as a drop from Baron Noggin in Meridian Metroplex.

Special Weapon Effects

Drop the shields. – Always shock. Only damages shields.

Usage & Description

The EMP should only be used for the shield of an enemy as it is ineffective against flesh or armor. This means that you will always need something else to take out the enemy. It is particularly powerful against enemies with powerful shields but weak health for it's purpose.



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