The Unstable Element is a resource in Extinction

Crafting[]

Unstable Element is crafted in the Inventory using 1000 ×  Element Dust. They have a "spoil" timer of two minutes and then convert into standard Element.

Notes/Trivia[]

  • Prior to the release of Extinction, Unstable Element takes in the form of a brown-colored version of Polymer.
  • There seems to be a bug (on some occasions) where Unstable Element doesn't spoil at all.
  • Due to the utilization of the Spoilage timer, Unstable Element and its corresponding Shards are negatively affected by increasing the spoilage multiplier.
