    Blacklight Surge FAQ

    General information

    Hunt down Blacklight aliens and compete with other players and clans to get special rewards during DarkOrbit’s Blacklight Surge event.

    During the event, the aim is to kill the Blacklight Aliens and to receive points. At the end of the event, rewards are given out based on the event ranking of the players and the clans.

    You want to gain even more points for Blacklight Alien kills? Use the company map point bonus and receive double points when killing Blacklight NPCs on your own company map:
    MMO in 1-BL and 1-8
    EIC in 2-BL and 2-8
    VRU in 3-BL and 3-8

    The Blacklight Aliens Impulse II, Attend IX and Purpose XXI are spawning with a higher rate on the maps.

    The event rewards will be given out according to the highest final scoring of the players and clans at the end of the event.

    Additionally, some Blacklight Aliens will give Progression points for each kill – those Progression points are part of the reward package that you’ll get when killing the NPC. These points can be accumulated for prizes via the progress system in the client.

    *Important: This time it’s not possible to reset the Progression point system once it’s completed!

    Special ammunition

    For the duration of the event, A-BL ammunition will deal x8 damage (standard damage is x4) to the following Blacklight Aliens: Purpose XXI, Impulse II, and Attend IX.

    New Rocket and Laser ammunition
    Rocket (Special ammunition): SR-5
    When a players uses this ammunition, he is slowed by 25% for 3 seconds after being fired. The ammunition deals 80,000 base damage to the enemies shield and the player absorbs 50% of the damage dealt to the enemy shield. So this effects both players and NPC:
    Range: 525
    Hit chance: 100%
    Cooldown: 4 minutes (not effected by cooldown boosters)
    Sell price: 250 credits​

    Laser ammunition: IDB-125
    When using this laser ammunition, it has a starting damage of x1. With each successful hit, the damage increases by 1.25 with a limit at x6. If the player hasn’t shot the IDB-125 laser ammunition for 3 seconds, the damage resets back to x1.
    This damage accumulation only effects PvP fights. When attacking an NPC with this ammunition, the laser deals x1 unchanging damage.
    Sell price: 12 credits​

    New Ship Designs

    There are 5 new ship designs called “Tyrannos” coming together with the event:
    -Cyborg Tyrannos
    -Mimesis Tyrannos
    -Hammerclaw Tyrannos
    -Hecate Tyrannos
    -Tyrannos Centurion

    *Each of these designs has a special kill streak effect as well as a brand new kill counter effect.

    Kill Streak Effect

    The Kill Streak Effect activates after 15 kills without dying or logging out. The effect lasts 15 minutes. If a player activates the Kill Streak Effect, has running it for 5 minutes and gets their 16th kill in a row, then the timer for the effect will be reset to 15 minutes. In case the player dies or logs out while the Kill Streak Effect is activated, then the effect is removed.

    Please note: There’s no visible timer that shows the duration of the effect. The Kill Streak Effect is only visual and doesn’t have any further impact.

    Kill Counter Effect

    When a player gets a kill with one of these ship designs, they will see a short popup text informing them how many kills they have got in these ship designs. The text will appear just above the player’s ship and be visible to everyone.
