EMP refers to a specific damage type and to weapons that inflict that damage type. The weapons include:

Additionally, when destroyed the Defoiliator condition causer will release a EMP blast with a 9 tile radius.

Zeushammers do 9 EMP damage, while all other sources do 50. This shortens stun duration.

When inflicted, EMP will stun mechanoids and turrets, including both human and mechanoid variants as well as mortars, for 25s (4.5s for Zeushammers). After being stunned, mechanoids become 'Adapted' and gain immunity against further stuns for 2,200 ticks (36.67 secs). Turrets do not become adapted. It is currently unclear if zeushammers cause a shorter "adapted" time to match their shorter stun time.

EMP damage instantly disables shield belts and low-shield packs. Additionally mech low-shields and mech high-shields in Mechanoid cluster Content added by the Royalty DLC will be disabled for 1,080 ticks (18 secs) when hit with an EMP, including when intercepting an EMP mortar shell.
