Overdrive is a consumable item in Fallout 4.

Characteristics

Overdrive is a syringe with two vials attached to it. It enhances the user's damage output by 25% and also grants the user a 25% critical hit chance per attack. Taking this chem is one of two ways to critically hit outside of V.A.T.S. or without a full critical meter, the other being rank four of the Basher perk. These extra critical hits also do not empty the critical meter as is the case with "normal" critical hits.

Notes

  • Although Overdrive is made from Psycho, it has its own addiction which gives -1 Agility and -1 Strength. This is unlike, for instance, Jet Fuel which gives addiction to all Jet chems.
  • Critical damage inflicted with the use of Overdrive is affected by the Better Criticals perk.
  • Overdrive's +25 Critical Chance effect applies both inside and outside of V.A.T.S..
