Mass Overload (initially Sensory Overload prior to being upgraded) is a Chaos cyber core in Call of Duty: Black Ops III. The upgraded version can affect 5 targets simultaneously.


Similar to Terminal Breakdown, Mass Overload can incapacitate enemies in the middle of combat. Considering that the majority of human enemies in the campaign are augmented, it is recommended to use Overload. However, with Terminal Breakdown having a similar function, it is easy to forget this ability.
