The EMP launcher fires EMP bolts that explode on impact, creating a small EMP pulse that downs shields, and stuns mechanoids, mortars and turrets.

Acquisition

EMP launchers can be crafted with skill level 4 at a machining table once the microelectronics research has been completed; with 75 steel, 8 components and 30,000 ticks (8.33 mins) of work. EMP launchers can also be purchased from orbital pirate merchants and orbital combat suppliers or outlander settlements.

Analysis

It is useful in taking care of mechanoids. The problem with it is that it is outranged by all ranged mechanoids, and it cannot reliably hit single targets, often requiring several shots to successfully stun the target.
