Capture the Flag on Orbital.

Orbital is a multiplayer map in Starhawk. It takes place in Space, on a station orbiting the planet of Dust.


Orbital stacks multiple levels on top of each other into a small map. The elevation changes here are immense, with high towers, elevated platforms, and two small stations to the sides of the map. Dust can be seen below, and the entire map is engulfed in a sea of floating asteroids.

Weapon LocationsEdit

add some!

  • Welding Torch - To the left of your base, after passing under the bridge.
  • R-Sec Proximity Charges - In the middle of the map, on the side with the bridge leading to the Rifter base.
  • Grinder - To the right of your base, after passing the rift barrels.
  • Galloway Revolver - under the bridges behind the flag location, to the left where the entrance is, NOT the right towards the dead end


The high elevation and small map size make Orbital the perfect playing ground for Vulture Packs. Gameplay usually ends up hectic, and the short distance between the enemy base and you ensures that the action never lets down.

Loadout SupportEdit

Orbital does not support the Ground Pounder and Heavyweight loadouts.


  1. The tall walls and towers on this map make great natural cover for Outposts.
  2. Take a Vulture Pack with you to traverse the high elevation changes on the map.
