Overcharge a Generator IconHelpLoading generators.png by performing the Damage Generator action.

The next Survivor interacting with that Generator is faced with a moderately/considerably/tremendously difficult Skill Check IconHelp skillChecks.png.

Failing the Skill Check results in an additional 3/4/5 % Generator regression. Succeeding the Skill Check grants no progress but prevents the Generator explosion.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This Perk was originally going to be named "Generator Overcharge".
  • The Overcharge Skill Check IconHelp skillChecks.png will trigger for any Survivor attempting to repair the damaged Generator before the initial Overcharge Skill Check has been dealt with. As a result, if multiple Survivors interact in quick succession with the damaged Generator, multiple Skill Checks will appear (one for each Survivor).
  • The Overcharge Skill Check will also "follow" a Survivor who interrupted the Generator repair before its appearance. That is, once the Skill Check is initiated, it will appear for the Survivor no matter what they do; failing the Skill Check will still cause progress regression, thus making it impossible to try and avoid the Overcharge Skill Check.
