[The Surge] How to Utilize Overcharge

This page contains a guide on how to use your overcharge to gain access to panels


Overcharge is a tool in The Surge that you gain access to when you receive your Exo-Rig. What it does is that it transfers energy from your suit into the circuits that control areas in an area, which means that you can use overcharge to open locked doors, restore light in a room, etc.

How to Use Overcharge

There will be several electrical panels in an area that you will find within the game, approaching these panels will show you a number that represent the minimum level of Power Core (your character level) that you need to have in order to gain again to its circuit.

For example, if you have a Power Core of 39 and the panel shows 50, it means that you won’t be able to access this panel until you Power Core reaches to 50.

If you have the same or higher number of Power Core as the panel, approach it and hold the button indicated at the center and wait for the gauge to fill up.

Enhancing Overcharge

To enhance your Overcharge, you have to level up your Power Core as much as possible. The only way that you can level up your Power Core is to collect a lot of tech scraps. Click here to see our guide on how to farm tech scraps faster in order to increase your Power Core.
