Alright, AN ANGRY HOBO i has a lot of great tips for the Night Defense but I'd thought I'd throw in my two cents.
As AN ANGRY HOBO i pointed out, only the normal OD actually take overcharge away so focus on them! If you can get Blowers in the process so be it, but trying to kill Wingers and Herkers is just wasting time and manpower from the normal OD. Just try to avoid the Special OD as best you can.
When I finally completed this I had 650+ kills, the next person under me didn't even hit 200. Even then we still lost quite a few Overcharges and barely squeaked by. If you want a fighting chance to win this, you'll most likely need a couple of people in your chaos squad who can blast the living shit out of the normal OD.
This is the setup I had and it certainly packs a wallop:
Weapons (All Level 5)
Hairspray Bomb with Second Amendment (This is your go-to weapon. Use it as often as possible and only switch to TNTeddy if its ammo runs out)
TNTeddy with Twist of Fate
These are optional but highly recommended:
Acid Sprinkler - Good for putting by barricades when hordes of OD are coming
Freeze Bomb - Nice for when a vat is being overrun and can temporarily stop OD from taking anymore Overcharge
Shorty Shotty - If you run out of ammo for others, this is a decent gun to blast many OD at a time until you get ammo back for Hairspray and TNTeddy.
Overdrives (All Level 4)
Sacrifice - Weapons
Ammo Capacity - Single Shot
Sacrifice - Single-Shot Weapons
Weapon Damage - Single-Shot
^^^ All 6 of these are extremely important (as Hair Spray Bomb and TNTeddy are both single shot and the backbone of this setup) and wouldn't recommend switching any of them out.
Melee - Twister Spin
Epic- Chance of Lightning
Dive Bomb- Seismic Smash
Hero Extra- Air Power
^^^ These are the least important and you could probably switch these with Amps that are more your play style. I would at least recommend Sadomasochist because near the end, you'll never have much health and the added damage will certainly help.
With this setup I was often able to totally obliterate hordes of OD before they were able to break through barricades even when it gets insanely chaotic near the end. Also, once Wingers and Herkers spawn I wouldn't worry about Traps (Those special OD can wipe them out instantly). They just end up dividing your attention from other important matters.
Hope this helps to anyone having problems with this (I know I did) and good luck not getting noobies in your squad!
