"EMP grenades cause damage and energy drain to those caught in the blast. This variant has a larger radius and drains the same amount, but deals less damage" In-Game Description
The EMP XL is a decent sidegrade to the Raider's standard EMP Grenade. Although it deals 100 less damage, this grenade has a much larger radius. This means the Raider can push aside flag defenders and leave them without energy to quickly get back into position. It also makes them easy targets since they have no energy to jet away from the Raider's other weapons.
