It only lasts for 40 seconds and can be countered by a single perk. Why does anyone bother using it? Chances are if you get an EMP the enemy either A) doesn't have scorestreaks or B) their UAV can be better countered by a CUAV or FHJ.

CUAV > EMP
AGR > EMP
Escort Drone > EMP
Lodestar > EMP
etc. etc.

Arguments?

If you go VSAT > EMP you get your dogs or swarm free.

It should last 60 seconds. I noticed that the effect wore off pretty quickly in this game. The only thing its good for is VSAT > EMP > Swarm since the assist points do most of the work.

EMP grenades are more effective.

Its good for one thing: combining with VSAT for massive assist points.

Not quite. That same perk counters CUAV, so that's null. The EMP also counters the UAV streak by destroying it and preventing its use for that time period. The EMP directly beats pretty much every other streak in that sense. Hardwired is also the least used in its tier.

It has its place. I don't use it myself though.

Hadn't he said he wanted only justice? But I couldn't. I could not tell her.
It would have been too dark, too dark altogether.

The EMP doesn't help in getting the dogs/swarm at all though. Like I said, a CUAV, FHJ, or hardwired would do the exact same job. You can obtain 3-4 CUAVS in the time it takes to earn a single EMP against semi-competent players. The EMP is also worthless against people that aren't good. It doesn't have a niche and is severely underpowered.
