Through your journey in Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, you may come across enemies that are relentlessly trying to take you down. These Overload Champions are extremely powerful, and not having the right weapon mods will make it more difficult to defeat them.

With the right weapon mods, you will be able to make short work of Overload Champions. These are the mods you will want to have in your artifact.

  • Overload Arrowheads – Damage by fully drawn arrows causes disruption, delaying ability energy regeneration and lowering combatant damage output. Strong against Overload Champions.
  • Overload Grenades – Void grenades cause disruption, delaying ability energy regeneration, and lowering combatant damage output. This Chest Armor Mod has an Energy cost of four.
  • Disruptor Spike – Improves the effects of disruption, lowering combatants’ damage output even further. This Chest Armor Mod has an Energy cost of three.

Bungie doesn’t give you any wiggle room at all when it comes to disrupting an Overload Champion, so you’ll be stuck with a bow. I recommend using The Spiteful Fang bow as your Overload Champion bow. After you’ve disrupted these Champions, you will be able to use any other weapon against them to finish them off.

Overload Champions won’t be the only difficult enemies you run into. The Unstoppable Champions and Barrier Champions will also require special mods to stagger or disrupt a healing shield. Make sure you are ready to take them down and level the playing field.
