The drone cannon Ex-B is a unique weapon added to Fallout 3 by the Mothership Zeta add-on and is carried by experimental weapons drones.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Ex-B (Explosive-bolt) is apparently an alien experiment in equipping the guardian drone model with a cannon that fires energy balls that explode on impact, instead of bouncing around. The Ex-B has a very long range if you manually angle the shot correctly. For example, you can be well outside Evergreen Mills and still hit the trapped super mutant behemoth. The Ex-B can also work underwater.

The drone cannon is an ineffective V.A.T.S. weapon, as the fired projectile will arc towards its target; since the game doesn't compensate for gravity in V.A.T.S., this can leave the projectile several meters away from its intended target.

DurabilityEdit

The drone cannon Ex-B can successfully fire about 417 times from full condition before breaking, the same amount as a normal drone cannon.

LocationEdit

In the southern area of the weapons lab, there is a room where you can spawn brahmin for the drones to kill (not the room next to the shooting range, but the room next to the weapons cache). Enter the room and kill the drone for the weapon. There is also a second one in the same room that is automatically activated when the first is destroyed.

BugsEdit
