The Market is where Blood Amber and Coins can be exchanged as currency to purchase a wide variety of useful equipment, credits and crafting materials. They are split into five sections:
- Black Market
Each market sells their own categories of odds and ends. Their contents may change periodically every week or so.

A new market for select customers (coiners), it is only open during feature events and alien events. High-end things like Xeno Division Hulls, Mk V upgrade packs and so on are sold here for coins. The contents also change from time to time. This market is not officially run by anyone in particular.
The Black Market is run by Larus. It sells weapon/equipment blueprints, armaments, formations, equipment packs, core boxes and ships. The contents change every week. Ships are only sold for coins, while the remainder is sold for either Blood Amber or coins.
The offensive and defensive packs up for sale in exchange for coins are never worth it and are a borderline scam. Do not ever purchase them!
The Credits market sells equipment that can be instantaneously equipped to a ship. They do not sell blueprints. They also sell resistors both in exchange for coins or Blood Amber. The contents are also changed once every few weeks, with the level III resistors cycling every 7 days.
The Crafting market sells materials needed for crafting such as patterns, cores and crafting parts in exchange for coins or Blood Amber. Their contents change once every 24 hours.
The Scrapyard is run by Algol. This market enables players to trade in patterns for core(s) one tier lower for free. Players could also downgrade armaments one tier at a time, which costs coins or Blood Amber. According to the lore, Algol collects Blood Amber just to destroy it.
