For the points they become, see Merits.
For the gameplay system as a whole, see Powerplay.

Powerplay bonds are bonds that can be redeemed for Merits. They can be handed in at the Power contact in the starport services menu in systems controlled by your Power.

They are earned by destroying ships belonging to an enemy Power in certain contexts:

  • You earn 30 Powerplay bonds for destroying enemy Power NPC ships in their control systems or systems they are trying to expand to.
  • Within Powerplay conflict zones such as Military Strikes you will earn 10 Powerplay bonds for each enemy ship killed. This includes both NPCs and players.

Powerplay bonds can be seen in the transactions window on the left HUD panel. Unlike bounty vouchers or combat bonds, no alert appears in the top right panel to tell you you have earned one.
