For those that don't know, EMP stands for Electromagnetic Pulse.  It's basically a burst of electromagnetic energy that travels in various wave forms.  Lightning strikes, Microwaves, and and high altitude Nuclear Explosion can cause EMP.  Although relatively harmless to people, it can literally fry any electronic device in an instant. 

 

I was thinking of how Rockstar could release a device like this as another weapon to use.  It would basically be like a sticky bomb where you can toss it somewhere, and it would stick.  Hitting left would detonate it, and anyone, or anything caught within a certain radius would be affected.  A person's PV, or any car would instantly be dead so to speak.  Add to that, anyone caught in the blast would have not only their Radar scrambled, but Cell Phone disabled for a certain amount of time.  So basically that person would be running blind for lets say 3mins, leaving them wide open for any kind of attack.  Of course if the person that detonated the device got caught in the blast, he too would suffer from it's effects.  Just a thought to add a bit of variety to Free Roam, and such.

Never gonna happen.

People would spam the hell out of this.

 

I can imagine a crew harassing a kid in his Chradder, inability to drive, see where they are, and cant even open his phone to accept a job invite from his friend

hell no

and it's not necessarily harmless to humans, most EMP's use very short pulses to disable electronic equipment without causing serious danger to people

but they're just like microwaves and very capable of killing things.

also most EMP weapons use aim-able beams to shield the user and the machine itself from the effects

 

but what I don't get it is this

if I take the time to plant charges in the correct position and time them to go off near an enemy vehicle

why wouldn't I just use stickybombs and blow it and it's occupants skyhigh while I'm at it?

using an EMP to disable the vehicle just seems like an extra step that's not needed

It could be good if the gameplay is balanced correctly.  I'm not so sure that it would fit within the GTA theme though.  I could see that being more suited for Saints Row.

:^: Every weapon needs a countermeasure.  :)

 

On topic - if the EMP would fry my cell phone so I don't get calls from Simeon or any other contact assholes, I would drive out of my way to get blasted with an EMP in every session.   :colgate:

It'd be like giving everyone 25 giant bananas from mario kart.  Difficult to escape and annoying as hell when used against you.

 

No thank you.

na, i hardly think this is something we should have put into the game.

 

 

a bit off topic, but what's with the numrous threads wanting to basicly turn GTA into a type of military game? people seem to be wanting a lot of military equipment and stuff. there are already plenty of military games out there, GTA does not and should not become a military game.

Dear god that feature nearly ruined the NFS series for me. EMP's do not belong in a racing game OR in a game centered around a criminal

There should be more ways to attack a player period.

I'm also waiting for the "magic wand" update in GTA0.

I voted for it sarcastically.  I assume a number of other people did also.  Sorry OP, I like the technology of EMPs, but it's as out of place as tanks are in GTA0.

We have enough EMP devices known as noob trollers to worry about them actually adding the option.

Are cars even affected by EMP? My car once ran with a faulty battery for 2 miles. Only issue I had is that it would stall if I stopped for a while.

Only if:

 

  1. Max 5 in inventory
  2. Small radius (so you can't fkin emp someone 2-3 blocks away)
  3. Short duration (under a minute)
  4. Level +150 weapon

Then that would be very balanced imo.
