The Infinite Black Wiki:Community portal
Black Dollars (BDs) is the premium currency in The Infinite Black. Generally speaking, Black Dollar features allow you to do things a little bit better and a little bit faster. Black Dollars can be found by destroying enemies, defeating alien invasions, reaching level milestones, and winning contests. On average, over 125,000 BDs are found and given away each week...just by playing the game! You can also purchase Black Dollars with real money. By doing so, you help keep the game running and will ensure we can continue to develop The Infinite Black!

13. Mines - Mines are deployable objects that deal damage over time to enemy players in the sector.
Notes on Mines:
- Mines cannot be attacked
- Buying new mines will first try to repair friendly mines
- There cannot be more than 5 mine clusters in a sector
- Buying a mine when 5 already exist will replace an enemy's mine, except on an enemy Garrison
- Mines damage between 2.5% and 5% of a target's maximum hull
- Mines hit 5 targets per detonation, including Fighters and Drones
- Mines will NOT hit or be attacked by NPCs or defense units
- Mines do not need to be repaired to :RECALL -- 1 Hull = 1 BlackDollar, however the recall costs 5 BlackDollars
