Orbital Cargo Drone (OCD)



The Orbital Cargo Drone is an HWS exclusive feature and it is arguably the most useful tool available to players. With the Orbital Cargo Drone (OCD), a player can store their assets (some restrictions apply) in a virtual Cargo Box accessible via the HWS Connect interface or ingame commands. Items stored here are safe and they persist through wipes ! (*see note at bottom of this section)

There are seven upgrade levels determining the cost of each level, the slot count, and the number of items that can be stored in each slot. The OCD should be considered a safe deposit vault rather than a magical backpack. As such, it may only be accessed in PVE Playfields (other than starter) using specific commands in faction chat or via the HWS Connect Tool. Players with OCD Level 7 have limited access to their OCD on PvP playfields. Players can upgrade their OCD using ingame credits or via supporting us. See details below.
