Used in 2052.
EMP Grenades are formally introduced by Anna Navarre at Battery Park after the player locates the Ambrosia container. Depending on the response, the player will receive either one or two grenades (Anna dislikes the "nerves of steel" comment).
The EMP grenade has a few major uses:
- It can permanently disable security robots in a patrol route, when you otherwise want to use explosives for other uses.
- It can temporarily disable the red and blue security beams.
- It can non-destructively push other AI characters away.
