The Precursor Orbs are ancient Precursor Artifacts that are used as currency in the Jak and Daxter Game Series. They were hidden around the world by the Precursors, the rulers of the ancient world.


[edit] Appearance

Precursor Orbs are small, bronze egg-shaped objects. They have Precursor Language written on them that encircles their sphere-like shape. The writing on the Precursor Orbs is a depiction of the text "Naughty Dog", the creators of most of the Jak and Daxter series.

[edit] Game Appearances

[edit] The Precursor Legacy

In Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Precursor Orbs are incredibly common compared to the Haven Universe's number. There are 2,000 of them exactly, and they can be found in various areas throughout the world. They are used to purchase Power Cells from people throughout the many locations that Jak and Daxter travel to.

[edit] Jak II

In Jak II: Renegade, there are not anywhere near as many Precursor Orbs. In total, there are only 286, and most are not scattered throughout the universe. Instead, they are obtained through the Mission Kiosks that are found in Haven City. There are very few of them in the actual areas of the world, so it is assumed that something happened, and they are less common for that reason. They can also be obtained through beating Stadium Races and Reverse Races. Precursor Orbs in Jak II are used to purchase Secrets.

[edit] Jak 3

In Jak 3, Precursor Orbs are once again used as currency. However, there are many more of them (exactly 600) that can be found in this game. They are found in missions that are assigned to you by Torn, or through the Precursor Kiosks. They can also be found located around the world. There are minigames (such as the Sniper Turret Game) that give Precursor Orbs as prizes.
