Specifically for Disabling Sunderer Deploy Shield with EMP Grenade
Where Did My HUD Go?
A conversation came up whilst in a squad the last week – someone asked how come their Deploy Shield sundie used to get blown up so quickly.
I remembered that Infiltrator’s EMP Grenades used to bring the shield down on the sundie so an LA / Engi / Heavy / whatever could blow it quickly….and said so with the caveat that I had bells ringing about that changing in the last few months.
So – to confirm – the ability to bring the Sundie Deployment Shield down was removed in this update, 6th June.
Still worth lobbing an EMP at any sundie your squad is trying to bring down though – just to affect infantry around it that may return fire of course.
Other EMP changes of note on that update link above –
Cost from 75 to 50
No longer drains ability energy
No longer disables Sunderer Deployment Shield
(Still drains Minor Cloak implant, Sunderer cloak, and infantry affected by a Sunderer cloak.)
No longer clears HUD indicators (but still shows HUD static)
Fixed an issue where players within line of sight, and greater than 12 meters, but less than 15 meters would only have their shields reset, instead of take them offline.
