The EMBAR is a new weapon in Gears of War 4. Commonly used by Deadeye DeeBees, they are a charge-shot, sniper rifle that fire electro-magnetic accelerated rounds that penetrate through enemies, but because they were designed for use by robots, they lack a scope. Charging a shot for too long will cause the weapon to vent, canceling the shot. This drawback only allows a small window of opportunity to line up and fire a shot. However, unlike the Torque Bow, if an opponent moves out of sight, the shot needn't be wasted.
The EMBAR's execution involves smashing the butt of the weapon into the downed enemy's back, then twice into the enemy's head, with the final hit bursting the head.
