Uses for UridiumEdit
Uridium is the most used currency in DarkOrbit due to many things and features using them, one of them being Shop. A recent addition that uses Uridium is Item Upgrading, which enables players to upgrade laser cannons, drones, and even the rocket launchers. But this does not come cheap, upgrading elite items, costs Uridium to upgrade which increases every time an item is leveled up, maxing of at level 16. The Tech Center is another feature which requires Uridium to build Tech Items instantly or with 100% urdium for advantages in fights.

Repair Bots Edit
- Buy the Aegis instead of a Skill Design first, it has more abilities and they all cool down faster
- Buy the first 1-2 Iris then bid on the rest of your Iris. Or bid on all of your Iris. This method is a Uridium saver
- Bid on all speed generators.
- Find the pieces to build the Apis and Zeus, don't buy them right off the bat.
- Buying RSB-75, CBO-100 is a waste if you're weak. Don't bother to have those lasers.
- Bid on all of the Vengeance and Goliath Designs (located at the bottom of the trade)
- Bid on Leonovs, Vengeances, and Goliaths, dont buy any with Uridium.
- If you focus on boxing, get the Uridium Pilot Points and a Bonus Box doubler.
- Skip to buying LF-3s if you can, they are worth more than LF-2s.
- Collect Palladium on the pirate maps for Galaxy Gate spins so you dont spend Uridium building gates or just getting ammo from the Galaxy Gate Generator.
- Get a cloak from Trade rather than using Uridium, then collect boxes on your company maps. You're sure to find some Uridium in there.
