| ||For the weapon in Fallout 4, see Cryolator.|
|The following is based on Fallout 3 cut content and has not been confirmed by canon sources.|
The Cryolator is a weapon cut from the final version of Fallout 3.
Several junk items possibly related to the Cryolator were also cut; a coolant component (which forms the midsection of the Cryolator) and a liquid nitrogen canister (which was possibly intended as ammunition) are two. Both of these items use the same texture file as the Cryolator.
The Fallout 4 version fires a constant stream of snow that freezes the enemies it hits.
- The Cryolator and the possible components mentioned above do not exist in the game (except for the crutch used for the stock and the weapon's base), nor do they exist as unused items in the G.E.C.K. editor. However, the meshes and textures for them and the weapon itself are contained within Fallout 3's BSA files.
- The Cryolator appears in Fallout 4, although it looks quite different. It can be found in a locked crate the Overseer's office in Vault 111. You can lock pick it out but you will need master lock picking. Another way to get it out is to have Dogmeat fetch it out of the crate and bring it to you.
