Game description[]

A supersymmetric particle cluster created by divergent super-gravitational forces. A micro-rift is created as they form, and extraction of the orb prompts a localised reality weakening. Sentinel forces will respond to stablise any such anomaly.

Can be sold at a Galactic Trade Terminal.

  • They can also be found from a rock-like creature with a stalk holding a Gravitino Ball. These are called Sentient Plant in-game. The stalk will only appear when you're near it. This type has a low chance of appearing on planets without extreme weather, and is similar to the Light Stalk found around Xen in the game Half Life.
  • Several can also be found at certain Ancient Ruins.
  • With assistance from a Farmer, Gravitino Balls can also be grown as a product of the Gravitino Host plant, with a harvest time of 120 minutes.
  • Can be found on Frigate expeditions
