Overload is a Tier Two talent in Roland's Medic tree that increases his magazine size with all weapons. The effect begins with 12% increase in magazine capacity with one skill point invested, and maxes out (not including class mods) at a 60% increase in magazine capacity with five skill points invested. It stacks with Assault for the purposes of increasing combat rifle magazine sizes.

Overload is an extremely effective skill whose effect is immediately noticeable on all weapons. Weapons with low magazine capacity are actually those that benefit the most from Overload, as it will reduce the very high reload rate of the weapon.
In particular, combat rifles, shotguns (especially the two-Shot variety) and rocket launchers will greatly benefit from this skill. For larger capacity weapons, such as Support Machine Guns or Patrol SMGs, Overload is more of a convenience skill: it will not fundamentally change the effectiveness of the weapon.
While revolvers can also benefit from this skill, many of them actually reload faster than they fire, making ammo capacity moot.
- Ammo capacity is rounded down: a two-shot gun with +98% ammo capacity will only carry three shots.
- With an S&S Munitions Draco or Serpens, sporting ideal magazine of 124, 5 points in Overload, and a Heavy Gunner Mod with +80% ammo capacity and +4 Overload, Roland can have a maximum of 357 shots before reloading.
