List of Altairian Overdrives (I)[edit | edit source]

Firestorm Overdrive[edit | edit source]

The Firestorm Overdrive is exclusive to the Bastion Cruiser and Blackguard Cruiser. Upon complete shield depletion, a massive rush of energy enhances the damage, shield bypass and range of the ship's weaponry for a short period of time.

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.

The effects last until 3 seconds after the condition is no longer satisfied.

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 it accumulates enough DoT Stacks, 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.
