“EMP grenades cause damage and energy drain to those caught in the blast. This variant has a larger radius and drains the same amount, but deals less damage”— In-game description
The EMP Grenade XL is an unlockable belt item for the Raider. They deal little damage compared to most grenades, but drain energy and have a large radius. They also do bonus damage to base assets. The XL version has an even greater blast radius, but deals less damage than the original.
- Upgrade 1: +1 ammo.
- Upgrade 2: +10% radius.
- Upgrade 3: +20% energy drain.
- The EMP Grenade XL should be used if the Raider wishes to drain energy from enemies rather than kill them, as the damage done is too small to even hinder most classes.
- Draining a player's energy then immediately following up with shots from an explosive weapon such as the ARX Buster can trap enemies, as they will be unable to jetpack away from the blasts. The XL version gives the enemy even less of a chance of preventing this tactic.
