Duration 4 seconds
Cooldown 5-4 seconds


EMP is a Secondary Ability.

Mechanics

On activation, EMP fires a large piercing bullet in the targeted direction, then immediately begins its cooldown. The bullet lasts for 3 seconds before expiring, dealing 1 Physical damage and a large amount of Confuse damage to enemies it hits. Enemies without stun immunity are inflicted with Confuse stun at 100% potency --- meaning they are completely immobilized and prevented from firing bullets for a set duration (however, they can still spawn minions and shoot non-bullet projectiles). Enemies with stun immunity are critically hit for 3x the amount of Confuse damage.

EMP is one of four secondary abilities affected by Damage multiplier (the other three being Bite, Acid Cloud and Propeller Blast); however, despite firing bullets, it is not affected by bullet-multiplying effects because it is not a Primary Weapon.
