Just found EMP grenades can destroy hellstorm missles.

Just got out of a game of headquarters on nuketown, I threw a EMP grenade towards the bomb site and got the medal "intercepted", 150 xp, and said I destroyed a hellstorm missle. I thought the EMP grenades could take out anything, but a hellstorm missle kinda surprised me. Whenever they fix theater mode I'll post it on my CODtv channel. Makes me wonder if they can take out lightning strike bombs too.

EMPs have always destroyed killstreaks. IIRC, the grenade is just a mini version of the killstreak, so it makes sense.

I wonder if I can save myself if I throw one straight up in the air as they try to rain them down on me...

I've taken out a hunter killer with one before. Emp grenades are awesome!

Did you get any special challenges unlocked or anything?

Is that cynicism? On the internet? Grow up, I have no time for your elitist attitude. Come back when you can be useful.

Wow really? I would imagine that is hard taking into account the range of the EMP and the position of a kill streak.

Just gave me the "intercepted" medal and 150xp. Wished they'd fix theater so I could review to see what happend. I dunno if it blocked the missle by itself or the group of cluster bombs.

If you get stuck and EMP yourself the Semtex will fall off. Pretty funny for when you face one of those Crossbow guys that do nothing but sit around and wait for you to pop past a corner.

I found this out as well yesterday when i emp'd a guys missle on dom...hate mail ensued.

EMP SUXXX!!!!
