    Winter Event FAQ

    General information
    This year’s Winter event comes with a bunch of activities as well as with a couple of changes for existing features.

    The DarkOrbit Winter Event is back! Can you catch the elusive Synk and avoid the pesky Iceterion in the Frozen Labyrinth? All while holding back the endless flood of Black Light aliens!

    Featuring new Iceterion and Skoll NPCs in the Frozen Labyrinth as well as new titles for Blacklight rankings. This event also contains a new Battle Pass format, where earned Battle Pass Keys can be exchanged for rewards such as the new Frost Orcus ship design as well as access to new Unstable Modules for this event!

    Here’s a short overview:
    - The Battle Pass system will be adjusted: Instead of earning direct rewards (that you still get when finishing objectives without using the Battle Pass), you’ll earn Battle Pass Keys when finishing the objectives with having the Battle Pass active that can be exchanged into different rewards of your own choice
    - There are also new Battle Pass Booty Boxes that can be opened with the new Battle Pass Keys
    - The Frozen Labyrinth will take place and it includes some new content
    - The Eternal Black Light Rankings with a Ship Boost event and new unstable modules takes place again
    - The Crazy Santa Bot reappears
    - The Snowman Mutation is active again
    Please note: The Skoll Gate that we ran in the last years, won’t take place this year. But the Skoll found his way into this Winter event as a new mini boss NPC.

    New Battle Pass Keys
    On top of earning rewards directly from each Battle Pass objective, you now also earn Battle Pass Keys (BPK) that you can use to trade for rewards of your choice from the new Battle Pass Reward Exchange window.

    If you’re finishing the objectives without having the Battle Pass, you’ll get the normal rewards directly. But if you’re using the Battle Pass, you’ll get Battle Pass Keys that you can use to exchange into rewards of your choice.

    The Battle Pass window will now include two different tabs: An “Objectives” tab and a “Key Exchange Tab”. Some rewards might have a limit how often they can be exchanged for Battle Pass Keys. This limit will be shown below the reward.

    IMPORTANT: If you get the Battle Pass after having already finished some of the objectives, the Battle Pass Keys won’t be booked automatically for the already finished objectives. This means, if you get the Battle Pass, you need to collect the Battle Pass Keys manually for the objectives that were finished beforehand!

    IMPORTANT: There’s an inventory limit of 250 Battle Pass Keys in the Inventory. Unused Battle Pass Keys will be exchanged into Honor when the event is over!

    Frozen Labyrinth FAQ

    General information
    Take part in the Frozen Labyrinth, a massive multiplayer treasure hunt, and traverse your way through the maze to reach the Boss NPC! Earn amazing rewards and a new title!

    The Frozen Labyrinth Gate can be accessed at the following times (Local Server Times):
    o Monday-Friday: From 10:00 to 14:00 (4 hours) and from 19:00 to 23:00 (4 hours)
    o Saturday and Sunday: 11:00 to 15:00 (4 hours) and 19:00 to 23:00 (4 hours)​

    The Frozen Labyrinth can be accessed from X-1 maps and this gate which can be found in X-1 doesn’t require a Labyrinth Key to enter.

    On all Frozen Labyrinth maps, PvP is disabled. At any one point, only one Synk – which is the Frozen Labyrinth Boss NPC– will be spawned in the whole Frozen Labyrinth Map system. In the center of every Frozen Labyrinth Map there’s a gate that brings to back to your home map in X-1.

    When you enter the Frozen Labyrinth, there are 3 base Labyrinth maps (Atlas A, Atlas B, Atlas C) and each player will be randomly sent to one of these 3 maps. Each map will spawn NPCs and/or loot boxes with a chance to get Labyrinth Keys to explore further into the Frozen Labyrinth.

    The whole Labyrinth contains 16 maps which are interlaced with each other. In addition, each map has different zones and gates that are interconnected. Every gate that is placed within the Frozen Labyrinth will require a Labyrinth Key to access it (excluding the center gate that brings you back to your home map). Use them during the event because at the end of the event, all unused Labyrinth Keys will be removed!

    Each of the different zones in the Frozen Labyrinth maps are spawning different Frozen NPCs that should be shot down to get a reward package. In those reward packages, you have the chance to get Labyrinth keys as well as other attractive items.

    It’s up to you to find your way through the Frozen Labyrinth and find the Synk!

    New NPC: Iceterion
    There are also a lot of other Frozen NPCs which are dropping rewards on death and giving out chances to win Labyrinth Keys and other valuable items. And there are also brand-new Iceterion NPCs that will give you a hard time in the Frozen Labyrinth. They cannot be killed but they are dropping exploding mines that will hurt your ship!

    Mini Boss NPC: Skoll
    The Skoll have broken out of the Breac, and is running amok in the labyrinth. Three of the Skoll NCP will spawn every 5 minutes at any point in the Frozen Labyrinth maps. There will be an information broadcasted in the Labyrinth when they spawn. If the Skoll chooses you, it attacks you – as soon as you’re blinking red because you’re in his rocket zone, you can decide whether to attack him or to move out of the rocket zone. The Skoll NPC will spawn minions that can be attacked instead.

    On death, the Skoll NPC gives out rewards for the top 3 damage dealers:
    - 1x Labyrinth Key
    - 4x Indoctrine Oil
    - 8x Indoctrine Accelerators​
