EMP Launcher

The Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) Launcher is one of the more powerful weapons alotted to the Galactic Republic. In the first Star Wars: Battlefront it was highly devastating when used against droids, however not very useful when fired at vehicles. It's slow fire rate and limited ammunion however limit this weapon.

In Star Wars: Battlefront II, the EMP launcher is basically a cut-down version of the Rocket Launcher, that fires an EMP missile. It can kill most enemies on contact, with a decent amount of splash damage, and does quite a bit of damage to Vehicles and other objects with large amounts of health. If you are attacking a heavier vehicle it is suggested that you aim for their critical hit point. You will often find yourself needing more ammunition. It is useful to take care conserving ammo for this weapon and save it for special Infantry (Such as a Droideka), small groups, and Heroes and Villains. Its blast is significantly larger than the EMP grenade used by Clone Troopers in Star Wars Battlefront I.

Aim must be taken carefully, as the EMP projectile moves slow and can be dodged by simply moving out of the way.
