The Overkill Device was a weapon built by South Ossetian separatists that utilized sonic vibrations and was capable of disabling any weapon from a gun in its holster, to a missile on a plane, to a nuclear missile in its silo.
S.H.I.E.L.D. first learned of the existence of the Overkill Device when Coulson's team extracted Agent Shaw from his undercover assignment in Siberia. With the intelligence provided by Shaw, S.H.I.E.L.D. learned that the South Ossetian separatists were planning on utilizing the Overkill Device in an attempt to declare their independence from Russia and Georgia. S.H.I.E.L.D. planned an assault on the separatists, but needed a two-man team to infiltrate and deactivate the Overkill Device, lest it be used against the assault teams. Agent Victoria Hand sent in Agents Grant Ward and Leo Fitz to neutralize the weapon. Ward and Fitz were successful in their efforts to deactivate the weapon, allowing for the S.H.I.E.L.D. strike teams to successfully neutralize the separatists. Fitz modified the core and connected it to a portable energy source, and used it against separatists in their escape.
