**1,134**Soo, its 400% or:

If 100% --- 25%

400% --- 100%?

this is like i supposed?

4,872I read it as starting at 100% and increasing in speed the longer it goes untouched.

4,804This is how I interpret it as well. 100%, up to 400% by the time it reaches 30 seconds of being untouched.

1,134OverchargeAlong with its current effects, Overcharge will cause a kicked generator’s regression speed to grow from 100% to 400% over the course of 30 seconds. Survivors will want to stop this generator from regressing as soon as possible.

Well, its 400% said in the perk, nothing about the time

6,805Not quite sure I understand the question, so apologies if I'm not answering this correctly.

When you kick a generator, it starts regressing at 100% of the normal rate (0.25 charges per second), then steadily grows to 400% of the normal rate (1 charge per second).

60130 seconds is the time. The regression will start at 100% and the rate will increase over the course of the first 30 seconds it is allowed to continue regressing, capping out at 400%.

74Normal regressión speed is 25%, not 100%, so something or someone is wrong here...

Ok perk understood, grow up from 100% to 400% over the time. Ooooook

6,805The normal regression speed is 0.25 charges per second. The percentages are based on that, not how fast a Survivor repairs a generator.

1,134ok, thinking about it a lot, I got it!

165can someone give me numbers on how fast (charges per second) the gen will regress?

1,134yeah muh better, i confused so much with that 100 to 400%, i didnt read so well :3

822Call of Brine still seems better as a perk due to the 200% regression speed being applied from the get-go which is enough to fully regress a gen in half a minute after kicking it. Meanwhile Overcharge gives far less value if a survivor taps the gen after like 15 seconds.

2,195does this work with call of brine? 400%x200% is what, 800%? or 600%?. Are we playing 3 gen meta now. Overcharge+Unnerving presence+Stbfl+call of brine....

732While I agree with your point saying that Call of Brine might be better because it has the initial 200% and doesn't have a "ramp up" period like Overcharge. Overcharge still has its current effects of giving the skill check, which I assume they're keeping the 5% penalty if the survivor misses the skill checks. This makes it much harder for the survivor to just "tap" the gen.

Overcharge is also better when you hook a survivor next to a gen. Makes defending the gen and the unhook super easy and you can destroy progress on the gen by doing so. I think they're both decent perks now, just a little different in how you want to apply them.

544The very first thing I wondered when I saw the Overcharge buff is how well the two stack.

2,213Gen regress is:

Base (100%) regress is 4 seconds to = 1 second of time spent repairing (so 25% of the speed of repair). Example: 40 seconds of regression = 10 seconds repaired

Current Ruin is double this. So 20 seconds of regression is 10 seconds repaired.

Overcharge will be 1:1 regression (400%) after the 30 second mark, which is pretty great.

165so bascially it will undo 1 second gen repair every second, which means after 90 sec a almost fully repeaired gen will be back to 0?

2,213Yea. Pretty much.😉

1,134Peanits one doubt, what will happen after 30 seconds? Will follow to 400%?

733Why is there a doubt? The 30 seconds just mean it'll take that long for the regression speed to reach 400%, not that it suddenly stops after that.

1,134There's not much info on it, but I'm guessing when that 30 seconds hits it obviously hits 400%, after 30 seconds it'll continue at 400% until someone touches it or it completely reverts, right?

733There's literally nothing that would contradict that so far.

174How it will interact with call of brine tho? It got me wondering

10,074@Peanits a lot of people have been wondering about the interaction between Overcharge and Call of Brine. Would you be able to clarify if they indeed stack?
