Torbjörn gains additional armor as well as improved attack, movement, and reload speed for a brief period.
Default Key: (PC E, PS R1, XB RB)


Upon activation of the ability, Torbjörn gains 100 temporary armor as well as a 30% increase to his movement speed, his Rivet Gun's attack and reload speeds, and his Forge Hammer's attack speed. All effects wear off after 5 seconds, and the cooldown starts after the ability's end. The ability will not affect his turret in any way.

If Torbjörn is reloading his Rivet Gun when the ability's effect wears off, its reload speed will not decrease. If he is in the attack animation of his Forge Hammer, it will do damage, but it will not allow an attack to land faster than normal.


  • If Torbjörn has temporary armor gained via Rally, and he gets damaged while Overload is active, the Rally Armor will be lost before the temporary Overload Armor.
