The EMP Grenade is a secondary grenade for the Engineer in the Team Fortress classic series of games.

The EMP Grenade detonates any ammunition carried on enemy players and buildings, Backpacks, pipebombs, or other grenades and sets enemy detpack timers to '1' in a cubical blast radius around it, including through walls, although dealing no damage of its own. This usually causes instant death when used on heavier opponents such as Soldiers.

Differences between Team Fortress and Team Fortress Classic

In Team Fortress, the EMP Grenade detonates many types of ammunition. In Team Fortress Classic, the only ammunition that can be detonated are rockets, cells, and shells, with rockets exploding most violently.


Low to instant death depending on how much ammo is carried by the victim.
