Took out Helletorm Missile with emp grenade

#1JordansgstringPosted 2/17/2013 7:46:07 AM
So I took out the missile with an emp grenade. Did I get a lucky on the missile. Or did I hit the controller of missile.
I think I probably got the controller, but I'd like to think I may have got lucky on the actual missile. Can anybody confirm which is possible?

EMPs don't blow up until after they come into contact with something. I've thrown idk how many across the map in the air. Concussions and flashes might but not EMPs.

you hit the missile. ish.

emp grenades effect anything above or below where they exploded so if you toss it exactly below where the missile was coming down (before he scattered the missiles) you can blow it up.

nicely done. you can also shoot the missile in case you didn't know...

Yeah I've done that several times. If I see an enemy hellstorm and a cluster of stupid temmates standing out in the open, I'll chuck an EMP towards them. More than once I've saved those cattle from getting slaughtered.

That is completely wrong.

Are you thinking of shock charges?
