Jump The Rift on The Black Dollar Menu allows players to jump into a parallel universe called The Rift. The Rift is intended for large groups of well-geared and experienced players.

Jumping The Rift transports you to another 80 x 80 sector map, but you will still be at the same sector location. The Rift has considerably stronger NPCs, but they drop better loot at a higher drop rate.

Rift-Faction equipment can be found in The Rift. Rift Invasions have a higher drop rate than normal invasions, including powerful Weapons, Harvesters and Armor.
