Overdrive is a hull's special ability, which provides an advantage on the battlefield. Overdrive has a number of strategic uses, such as clearing the enemy's base with Wasp's bomb, protecting your teammates with Titan's dome, catching a gold box with Mammoth's invincibility, and many more. This ability requires careful planning and assessment of the situation in order to be used effectively. On average, one player will be able to charge and use their overdrive 2-4 times in every 7-minute battle, depending on how well they play.

General Info

  • Overdrive needs to charge to 100% before it can activate
  • Overdrive activates a unique hull ability (read below)
  • the charge gradually accumulates through playing.
  • available for all players (Recruits and higher)
  • activates by pressing Shift (the key can be changed in Settings)
  • doesn’t spend your own supplies
  • can be enabled or disabled in PRO Battles
  • disabled by default in Format battles (except Parkour)
  • can be instantly charged to 100% by catching the Nuclear Energy dropbox


Overdrive begins to charge slowly after you have joined the battle. Deaths and weapon changing don’t interrupt or reset this constant charging. You can speed up the charging by earning battle points from killing enemies, healing your teammates with Isida, capturing flags and points.

Note
When Overdrive charging progress reaches 100%, a small star sign appears below your health bar. This also applies to your allies, so you will see if any of your teammates have Overdrive ready to use. Once Overdrive is activated, its charging progress resets and Overdrive begins to charge again slowly. Performing actions (killing, healing, capturing) doesn’t give you additional charging points whilst Overdrive bonuses are active.
