While it’s not 100 percent guaranteed, it appears as though EMP Grenades are on the way to Black Ops 4 Blackout. This is, if David Vonderhaar’s (Treyarch design director) quotes on the matter are anything to go on (thanks CharlieIntel). Vonderhaar even goes into a little detail into what he thinks the EMP Grenades shouldn’t do.

Vonderhaar explains that while he “personally [doesn’t] think the EMP should remove player names,” he does “think the EMP could be an interesting addition to Blackout.” Speaking on when EMP Grenades could find themselves in Blackout, however, Vonderhaar wasn’t specific. “It’s on the schedule, but a bit downstream and lower priority than some other things.”

Although Vonderhaar didn’t go so far as announcing when EMP Grenades are coming to Blackout, it does seem like they will eventually arrive. Hopefully, sooner rather than later.

As of writing, there aren’t too many effective ways of dealing with vehicles in Blackout. An EMP Grenade would be used to disable anything electronic. EMP Grenades in Blackout could disable vehicles, targeting reticles, mesh mines, mini-maps, and anything else that uses electricity. We don’t know exactly what they will do when they are added, but as stated above, EMP Grenades in Blackout likely won’t remove player names.
