An EMP is a device which disables all the robots (including androids and nanobots) and electronics in the map for a few seconds when used. It is destroyed after use.

It will explode if burnt, like all bombs, but it will not explode from anything besides fire. Also destroys robots when used. (This does not include androids or nanobots.) It will also cause any item capable of shorting out to short out. Robot Zombies are unaffected. It has a handheld compact version called EMP GrenadeEels and "electric" creatures die from water after being shorted because they themselves get electrocuted.


  • Throwing an "Explosive" EMP Grenade in Remix will cause it to explode instantly. Interacting with one will cause a shorter flash and an instant explosion, making Remix unplayable until restart.
  • There is also a glitch where, if you activate the EMP and move it before it explodes, it will be stuck on the screen. The same glitch works for the EMP grenade.
