Tier 7 Altairian Overdrives[edit | edit source]

Firestorm Overdrive[edit | edit source]

Barrage Overdrive[edit | edit source]

The Barrage Overdrive is exclusive to the Paragon Battleship and Kingpin Battleship. Whenever there are enemies (not including squadrons) in both of its attack arcs, weapons have increased AoE radius, projectile speed, and turning speed, with the bonus lasting up to 3 seconds after the pre-condition is no longer satisfied.

Catalyst Overdrive[edit | edit source]

The Catalyst Overdrive is exclusive to the Cavalier Cutter and Assassin Cutter. Whenever the ship is affected by Stasis Dealing effects (except for Stasis Field), it gains increased forward speed, shield defense, instant shield regeneration and stasis resistance for a brief period. The shield buffs do not apply if shields are fully depleted. Do note that a stasis resistance of over 100% will reverse the effects of Stasis.

Enguard Overdrive[edit | edit source]

When 3 or more enemies are within the targeting arc, a Sovereign Carrier with the Enguard Overdrive Generator (or a Usurper Carrier with the Shirk Overdrive Generator) gains boosts to Counter Chain, Counter Pierce, Shield Defense, as well as the ability to recharge its shields instantaneously. In addition, the Enguard Field is generated around the carrier.

Riposte Overdrive[edit | edit source]

When a Sovereign Carrier with the Riposte Overdrive Generator takes 2,500 points of health damage, it gains the ability to recharge its shields even when under fire, at an increased rate. This can be triggered multiple times; however, only health damage taken while the Overdrive is inactive count towards the requirement. In addition, the Riposte Field is generated around the carrier.

Feedback Loop[edit | edit source]

The Feedback Loop is exclusive to the Renascence Battlecruiser. When the threshold of DoT Stacks is reached (calculated each time they "tick"), it briefly gains the ability to apply a lengthy debuff to Phase Charge Rate as well as speed to enemies on hit, while simultaneously boosting its own shields and increasing its maneuverability and resistance against Plasma Damage.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The range bonus of the Firestorm Overdrive was decreased from +40% to +20% during a balancing patch in April 2018.
  • The Surge Core PL was originally considered as an item, the Pulsar Charger. It was first seen in Altairian Mothership Fleets.
  • The Feedback Loop overdrive was buffed in the early May 2019 update, as mentioned here.
  • The Orator Dreadnought's stats were inadvertently released in the late June 2019 update through unlocked crafting recipes when logging in through the mobile version. While this was quickly discovered and fixed, players who have already unlocked the recipe can continue viewing the ship's stats. When the ship was officially released in the late July 2019 update, its stats and overdrives received massive buffs.
  • The Ajax originally suffered from a bug in which its Fortify overdrive granted resistance to all damage to its shields (including Blight and Void). This was fixed in the late December 2019 update, which also changed the Fortify overdrive to provide hull resistance instead of shield resistance.
  • The Hunt overdrive complements the Artemis' namesake, the Greek goddess of the hunt.
  • Originally, the Hunt overdrive can begin to refresh once the squadron is ready to be launched again (e.g. in case it was prematurely destroyed). However, after the late May 2020 update, it was changed such that the full duration of 20 seconds has to pass before it can do so.
  • Originally, Savior could be activated by losing Ablative Armor. This has been no longer the case since the late July 2020 update.
