Overpenetration is a rune effect in Impale, a Hatred-spending Demon Hunter skill.

This rune effect adds a piercing effect that allows the dagger to pass through an unlimited number of enemies in a straight line. This skill is best used against large groups of enemies, and can be quite effective at landing a single damaging hit to a particular monster, such as a summoner or conjurer who is otherwise unreachable in the back of a large pack.
