An Overkill occurs when a character deals damage to an opponent and decreases HP greatly beyond 0. For example, a player dealing 149 damage to an opponent with 100 Health results in an overkill (150 damage would be Massive Overkill and 200 damage an Epic Overkill).

Overkill indicates where a character is KO'ed and fades in red and displays Overkill text.

Overkill is part of PvE Score Modifier.


  • Overkill - 30% HP below 0
  • Massive Overkill - 60% HP below 0
  • Epic Overkill - 90% HP below 0

Toggle Combat Message Speed

Added on May 1, 2014 Patch Notes. Toggling on the Combat Message Speed will greatly increases combat speed by removing most of the battle text, including overkill text.

Player Versus Enemy

Can be engaged by clicking Fight button. The player is represented by the Agent in the game. Two Heroes join the Agent in a Team, which fights against opposing forces in the combat screen. The opposing forces may contain up to three generic Enemies and/or Villains. Combat may involve several waves of enemies. Some effects do not proc before going to the next wave.

Each character takes a turn to perform an action. This may involve the use of skills, weapons, or supplies. Some characters may perform actions have have Buffs that allow them to have an extra turn. A character is Knocked Out (or KO'ed) when their health falls to zero, starts to fade, removing from the combat.

A Distress Call may be activated without using a turn.

The Agent enables the use of Supplies during combat by any member of the team. If the Agent is knocked out, the rest of the team will no longer have access to supplies.

After the end of the fight, the player's score is calculated based on the PvE Score Modifier, which may include Team-Up Bonuses.

If a player refreshes the game while in combat or resulted as Draw, counted as loss and affects the total mission score.
