The MPLX Novasurge is a weapon which is added to Fallout 3 in the Mothership Zeta add-on.


This section is transcluded from Plasma pistol. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.


The weapon acts very similarly to the plasma pistol it formed the basis for, barring several prototype features. First and foremost, this weapon does more than three times as much damage as the regular plasma pistol, and has a higher critical multiplier (3x as opposed to 2x). However, it uses two energy cells to power each shot, and weighs twice as much as the normal, almost as much as an R91 assault rifle.


The MPLX Novasurge can fire a total of about 188 times, the equivalent of 24 reloads, from full condition before breaking. That's 212 times fewer than the common plasma pistol.

The weapon is found in the cargo hold area of Mothership Zeta. In one area is a Reid Underwood's terminal (hard) which can be hacked to unlock a safe, to get to the terminal go to the Research lab door go north then a bit east you should see a group of terminals, it's the only one that isn't broken. The safe itself is found in another area among several piles of rubble, next to a machine that is dropping items into a pit. Inside the safe is the weapon, a note detailing the weapon, and energy cells (amount may vary due to the Scrounger perk).

The Cargo hold becomes inaccessible after teleporting to the Bridge, making it impossible to obtain the weapon afterwards.


  • Elliot can pick this weapon up if you unlock Underwood's safe but don't go and collect the weapon.
  • Somah can pick up this weapon without opening the safe, making it possible to obtain it without 75 science.
