There is no Reflex save to avoid an EMP grenade. If caught in the 4-meter blast radius when the weapon detonates, any electronic device is disabled for one hour while the disruptive residual radiation of the burst degrades. Droids make a Fort save DC 15 for a direct hit, or 12 for the surrounding blast radius, or be deactivated for one hour.
Electromagnetic Pulse Grenades are formidable electronics-busting thrown weapons used primarily by Advanced Recon Commandos during the Clone Wars, when anti-droid ordinance was necessary despite the high cost of making such weapons (and potential collateral hazards of accidentally disabling friendly electronic systems, including clone troopers’ armor sensors).
