The EMP Grenade is a grenade in XCOM. EMP Grenades ignore armor when dealing damage. They only affect robotic units.
Tactical Info Edit
- The following types of enemies that can be affected by EMP: Turrets, MECs, Sectopods, Gatekeepers, Codexes, Andromedon Shells and Shieldbearers
- EMP Grenade also has a chance to cause shutdown on some robotic units. This makes it a weapon of choice when dealing with tough robotic enemies, allowing XCOM squads a little more time to deal with the threats in the area.
- It may lower the hacking defense, allowing Specialists to easily hack them in order to shutdown or take control with the Haywire Protocol.
- ADVENT Shieldbearers don't take any damage from the effects of the EMP but it will collapse the Energy Shield on any enemies given by it.
