Magus Overload is an Arcane Enhancement for the Operator. When using Void Sling on Robotic enemies, these enemies will be stunned for 3 seconds, then discharge electricity, dealing DmgElectricitySmall64.png Electricity damage scaling with the overloaded enemy's max health to anyone within 25m.


Rank % Health
0 15%
1 30%
2 45%
3 60%
4 75%
5 80%


Can be bought from Vox Solaris (Syndicate) for ReputationBlackx64.png 10,000 upon reaching the rank of Shadow.


  • When equipped, this arcane massively increases Void Blast's base damage on Robotic enemies only.
  • While only Robotic enemies can be overloaded, the following discharge can damage any other enemy in the vicinity.
    • The discharge does not ignore Armor.
  • This effect does not stack: one must wait for the discharge to happen to overload the same enemy again.
  • Killing an overloaded enemy will trigger the discharge sooner. However, if the enemy is killed by the Void Blast meant to apply the overload, then nothing will happen.
  • Despite having Robotic health, Teralysts, Gantulysts and Hydrolysts are completely immune to the effect, as well as Kyta Raknoids and the Profit-Taker Orb.
  • Overloaded enemies, along with being stunned, have electricity matching the Operator's chosen energy color coursing through their bodies.


Patch History[]

Update 31.6 (2022-06-09)


We’ve adjusted the values of older Arcanes with the goal of making lower rank Arcanes more viable, and more desirable while collecting as a result. In short, there are three stats that each Arcane tends to have (speaking generally) -- for example, a percentage chance, a stat buff, and the duration of the buff.

Certain Arcanes increase all of these stats per rank (making them scale exponentially), but we are changing it so that only one stat is affected by rank (making it scale linearly). The other stats will now be at the max-rank value regardless of the Arcane Rank, thereby buffing lower-rank Arcanes as a result.
