The Element Dust is a resource in the Extinction DLC.

Gathering[edit | edit source]

Element Dust can be gathered by killing and harvesting Enforcers or by harvesting Lampposts, Benches and Tables in the Sanctuary. A Doedicurus can harvest Element Dust from Sanctuary's objects such as lamp posts extremely efficiently, automatically destroying and gathering them as it does with stone; carrying one with an Argentavis or Quetzal and letting it it hit lamp posts as you fly through the city can be an extremely fast way of gathering large quantities of Element Dust, Crystal.png Crystal, and even Electronics.png Electronics.

Another way of getting large amounts of Element Dust, Element Shard.png Element Shards and pure Element.png Element, is by finding and defending the Element Nodes spawned around the Wasteland. Element Dust can then be crafted at a City Terminal by breaking down (at an 80% loss) Element and its shards into 200 and 2 dust each, respectively.

Rarely, some Gachas can even produce a moderate quantity of Element dust from their Gacha Crystal (Extinction).png Gacha Crystals as a production option.

Unlike Element.png Element, Element Dust can be transferred, and then used to craft Element Shard.png Unstable Element Shards and Element.png Unstable Element.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Element Dust is used to craft the following items:

It is also used to power the Scout and Enforcer.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • It can be harvested from Enforcer.png Enforcers.
  • It can be harvested from Lampposts in the Sanctuary.
  • It can be harvested from Tables in the Sanctuary.
  • It can be harvested from Benches in the Sanctuary
  • after crafting it into Element.png Unstable Element Extinction Icon.png, it spoils into Element.png Element, making it the the second added way to craft Element. The first being via the Charge Node (Aberration).png Charge Node Aberration Icon.png with the release of DLC Aberration.
