Trivia

  • This Perk was originally going to be named "Generator Overcharge".
  • The Overcharge Skill Check Skill Check}} 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.
