Overload is a Resistance 2 co-op and multiplayer berserk. In co-op, it is only available for the Soldier class at level 4, while in multiplayer it is available for everyone at level 8. Overload is a berserk that will make the player explode upon reaching a certain proximity to an enemy player. This berserk will mean that the player will die, but is not counted as a suicide if the player explodes and kills an enemy. This berserk is useful to kill multiple enemies at once. The player will self-destruct after 30 seconds of the berserk being activated, regardless if an enemy is encountered. This will not count as a suicide.
- The Overload is Berserk is inspired by the Leeches' main form of attack.
