The alien blaster is a weapon in Fallout 3.

CharacteristicsEdit

The alien blaster is one of the most powerful weapons in the game because a critical hit is guaranteed. This weapon will often be able to take down any foe with a single shot to the head.

This weapon also has the effect of disintegrating any enemy killed with a critical shot by it (which is every shot for creatures weaker than most super mutants), identical to a laser (with the exception that the disintegration effect is colored blue instead of red).

The alien blaster deals electrical damage; the only other weapons that do electrical damage are the Firelance, The Shocker, Jingwei's shocksword, the Tesla cannon, the Shock Baton and the Captain's Sidearm.

DurabilityEdit

The alien blaster can fire a total of about 125 shots, the equivalent of 13 reloads, from full condition before breaking, but will not jam until approximately 120 discharges.

VariantsEdit

  • Firelance - Harder to obtain, yet slightly weaker than the blaster, the Firelance causes fire damage if the target survives the initial blast and is affected by the Pyromaniac perk.
  • Captain's Sidearm Mothership Zeta (add-on)Gametitle-FO3 MZ - A unique, cleaner, shinier alien blaster used by the alien captain.

NotesEdit

  • Dogmeat can be used to help recover the blaster and scattered ammo from the crash site.
  • The blue neon glow turns off when the player character enters sneak mode.
  • On Mothership Zeta none of the aliens use this weapon besides the captain (which is a unique version).
  • In an early piece of concept art (see below), the weapon was portrayed as a small alien ship, with an added grip to be used as a handgun.
  • The alien blaster can be given to Protector Casdin for the usual payment options.
  • With Mothership Zeta installed, the Lone Wanderer will be abducted before being able to pick up the alien blaster from the crash site.
