Have you ever seen a confetti cannon? The Compact EMP Launcher is just like that, but instead of colorful paper and happiness, it's an electromagnetic pulse, short circuits and shattered dreams.
Ammu-Nation and Social Club description.

The Coil Compact EMP Launcher is a weapon that appears in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the The Contract update.

Design

Grand Theft Auto Online

The Compact EMP Launcher is a handheld pistol-styled grenade launcher. It is reminiscent of what is basically a cut down and oversized version of the M320 platform and airsoft styled handheld grenade launchers.

It has a ribbed grip as well as fire-selector switch, and prominently features a skeleton frame surrounding the barrel. It also features a holographic targeting system placed near the end of the barrel.

Performance

The weapon is functionally similar to the Compact Grenade Launcher, featuring identical projectile ballistics. It is a single-shot weapon that automatically adjusts its arc based on what the player is aiming at. Grenades fired by the Compact EMP Launcher also bounces off of surfaces and will detonate after a short period of time but will always detonate when directly impacting a player or vehicle.

However, unlike the Compact Grenade Launcher, this weapon fires specialized EMP grenades that disables the engine of struck vehicles for 5 seconds. These grenades deal very little damage and does not inflict any knock back.

Similar to the Compact Grenade Launcher, it may also be used as a drive-by weapon on a motor bike or when on the passenger side of certain helicopters.

The effectiveness of the Compact EMP Launcher is questionable as it is relatively difficult to hit moving targets due to its slow travel time and arcing projectile. Even with a successful hit - the vehicle is only temporarily disabled and will return to normal functionality after only 5 seconds. The EMP effect will only disable the engine of the vehicle, and will not disable the weapons of the affected vehicle.

Besides the unique ammunition, the weapon is identical to the Compact Grenade Launcher.
