Destiny 2: How To Defeat Overload/Unstoppable Champions

Facing off against a Barrier Champoin

Ever since the Destiny2 expansion Shadowkeep, players would occasionally run into a buffed-up version of already formidable opponents. These shield bearing champions would be faster, much more aggressive, and able to shake off damage from weapons like flies off a horse’s... mane. They acquired this confidence because of the new barrier they sport. Once such a champion's health level would drop to half, a new shield would pop up; the new shield would negate most damage, and the enemy quickly regenerates its health bar. Some champions in the mix would even present the dreaded immune tag when shot at with regular weapons.   

Fear not guardian, for there is always a way. The way to a rip out a champions barrier protected heart would be the correct modified weapon; this could be in the form of a weapon drop that already has the prerequired perk, or having purchased it from the season artifact and modifying the weapon yourself. Here is a brief explanation of what modifications are available and a list of 5 weapons that come with the perk included.  

How to acquire.  

Once you have acquired the seasonal artifact is just a matter of purchasing the available. Since the artifact change by season, a player must be aware of what to buy. At launch hand, cannon armor-piercing rounds were the first to become available. These were the fastest to obtain and powerful, now seasons past, there is a slew of new modifiers available it is up to you to pick your poison.  

  • Anti-Barrier Rounds (for Auto Rifles and Submachine Guns) 
  • Anti-Barrier Hand Cannon 
  • Overload Rounds (for Auto Rifles and Submachine Guns) 
  • Overload Arrowheads 
  • Unstoppable Hand Cannon

How to use them in a fight.  

A one-two punch approach is recommended. Use your preferred weapon with the attached modifier to breach the shield; once the opponent's guard is down or is staggered, bring up your power weapon to drop the fiend's health. Preferably have a quick draw mod on both weapons for a rapid change.
