From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
Overcharge Shanks are a variant of Exploder Shanks.
Overcharge Shanks appear during the Exodus Crash strike. They are first encountered when the strike team must defend a platform until their Ghost can hack it. If an Overcharge Shank reaches the platform, then the ground be become electrified, stopping the hacking process, as well as damaging Guardians while slowing them and preventing them from jumping until the Shanks are destroyed.
The Overcharge Shanks reappear at the end of the strike and electrify parts of the battleground within the EX-077 Command area while the Guardians challenge Thaviks, the Depraved. Once they reach a free section of the floor, they will stay there to keep it electrified.
