Dark Orbit is a free online multiplayer game with an outer space theme. There are two different types of currency used in Dark Orbit. The most common type is credits, which are easy to accrue as you play. The other type of currency is Uridium. Uridium is the currency you need to purchase the best ships, weapons, defences and gadgets to equip your ship. It also is the currency required to build your Galaxy Gates. The most common way to obtain Uridium is by purchasing it with real money. For the more patient player, there are three methods of obtaining Uridium for free.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Log in to your ship account.

  2. 2

    Fly your ship into the map and collect bonus boxes. Bonus boxes are the glowing boxes you will encounter while flying your ship through the maps. These boxes contain random items, such as Uridium, credits and ammunition. The boxes will refresh themselves in the same general areas after they are harvested, so it is possible to continuously troll one map.

  3. 3

    Attack and kill nonplayer characters, or NPCs. NPCs are the aliens you will encounter in the maps. Every time you kill an NPC, it will drop its cargo and you will receive a certain amount of Uridium along with other resources and credits. You also will receive honour points for killing an alien.

  4. 4

    Attack and kill other player characters from enemy companies. Player characters are the other players you are interacting with in the game. When you kill another player character, that person will drop his cargo, which includes Uridium and resources. You also will receive honour points for killing a player of an enemy company.

Tips and warnings

  • Keep track of how much Uridium you are obtaining from bonus boxes in each map. Some maps yield more than others. The battle maps tend to contain bonus boxes with about twice as much Uridium, but trolling those maps exposes you to attack by other players.
  • Using bots or hacks to obtain Uridium can result in your account being hacked and can get you banned from the game indefinitely.
  • Do not attempt to kill players of your own company to obtain Uridium. By attacking your own company members, you are labelled a team killer and can be ostracised or repeatedly attacked by your teammates. You also will lose honour for killing a member of your company.
