Elements in PSU are a basic property of striking weapons (only through item synthesis by using elemental Photons), Bullets, TECHNICs, Line shields (only applicable to some of them), and Enemies. They are based off the four Greek classical elements - Fire, Ground, Air (Lightning in PSU), and Water (Ice in PSU), with two additions - Light and Dark. Elements are a significant part of the gameplay in PSU. Enemies are weak to the element opposite to the one they are affiliated with, and elements also have distinct status effects associated with them. Since due to the use of Bullets and TECHNICs all weapon types are capable of using elemental attacks, this will complicate combat strategy for all roles.

Elemental Damage

In general, attacks purely of one element will deal additional damage to enemies of the opposite element, but less to enemies of the same one. The amount additional or less will be variable for Striking Weapons depending on their elemental attribute percentage. For example, if a weapon were to have an elemental attribute of 50%, then its damage could only be increased or decreased by 50%, depending on the enemy's element. For Ranged Weapons this is the same, but the elemental attribute is decided by the level of the elemental bullet inserted and the type of ranged weapon. TECHNICs have their own elemental attribute, though it is not detailed in-game, and in addition if all TECHNICs on a TECHNIC weapon are of the same element, a further elemental attribute is granted as detailed in the weapon's menu.
