Merge with ion grenade? Edit

From information in both articles, and their apparent use, it seems pretty clear that they are the same weapon, if one not simply being a variant of the other. They are both thrown grenades (obviously), they both have a 3-meter blast radius, they both way 0.5 kg, they both generate an electromagnetic pulse and they're both primarily used for disabling electronics. Therefore, I think these articles should be merged. --Thecrazyweirdo (AKA CommanderAwesome) Talk Contribs 23:15, October 15, 2014 (UTC)

  • They are very similar. In Saga Edition however, they are listed as two separate weapons, with the ion grenade dealing slightly more damage.--Richterbelmont10 R2 sig(come in R2!) 00:36, October 16, 2014 (UTC)

EMP Grenade/EC-Detonator Edit

I would not say they are the same. As we can see the effect of an EMP grenade in "The Clone Wars" and the Effect of an EC Detonator in the Republic commando video game it seems that the EC detonator is not a real EMP-like grenade and more like an electric grenade with some EMP abilities. as we can see it can harm organics with some significant damage and the real EMP-grenades are unable to do such a thing as we can see in this one clone wars episode on geonosis. I would suggest we create 2 different articles. --Overlord-1138 (talk) 12:35, January 22, 2015 (UTC)

  • Ok I wil create a new Page about them soon. And btw I would suggest you to play Republic commando, its a great game and makes lots of fun. --Overlord-1138 (talk) 22:30, January 22, 2015 (UTC)
    • From what I can tell, the EC detonators from Republic Commando are the same thing as EMP grenades. The primary difference is that the game has the EC detonator cause more violent destruction, but that is true for every weapon in the game as it was much more violent than The Clone Wars. As for the EMP grenades not being able to harm living beings, The Clone Wars Campaign Guide establishes that EMP grenades can damage both droids and organics. Star Wars: Battlefront also shows EMP grenades that can damage organics. The differences between the weapons are minor and can be attributed to the style and mechanics of the various sources. Unless there is a source that says they are different or says that EC detonators are a specific type of EMP grenade, I do not believe that EC detonators need a separate article.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 21:16, January 25, 2015 (UTC)
