Agility Orbs are a collectible scattered around Pacific City in the Crackdown games.
The purpose of the agility orb is to help level up your characters Agility attribute. They can be found all over the place, mainly atop high buildings and hard to reach areas. Picking up an agility orb will give a small boost to your agility tier, which can also be increased by shooting enemies from high altitude: making the orbs unnecessary, and instead more as a side quest.
The first in the series had 500 agility orbs hidden around the city (and 300 hidden orbs for a total of 800 collectible orbs). They could be easily identified by a small ringing noise which they made when you were near to them.
Owners of the "Getting Busy" bonus pack also had an extension to this, whereupon having found over half of the orbs, the ringing would start to increase in range with each additional orb found, making it easier to find some of the later orbs.
In Crackdown 2, developer Ruffian Games added " Renegade Orbs
". These orbs require the player to chase them down in order to collect them and boost their agility or driving skills. There are two types of Renegade Orbs: Driving Orbs and Agility Orbs.
There are also Multi-Orbs which require multiple players (through co-op) to stand beside them in order to be collected.
