Orbs of Light are glowing balls of energy generated by other Guardians when they use their super abilities. Orbs can be picked up by any other player in the Fireteam, as well as any other Guardians in the area, and provide a large boost to a player's super ability recharge meter. The super ability recharge boost when the player picks up an Orb appears to be larger than the boost that players receive from kills, time, or other actions. Orbs of Light are a cooperative gameplay mechanic designed to encourage players to play in Fireteams and reward them for working together.
