The Unstable Element is a resource in Extinction
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.
- 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 the Spoilage timer, Unstable Element and its corresponding Shards are negatively affected by increasing the spoilage multiplier.
