Alien blaster is an unique alien weapon in Fallout.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The following section is transcluded from Alien blaster. To modify, please edit the source page.

A special alien blaster with a different design and color compared to others alien weapons and using small energy cells, which could indicate that this a weapon prototype was to avoid having to replenish alien power cell in Earth. It shoots a purple electric bolt and is particularly devastating as a close range weapon.

Gameplay attributes[edit | edit source]

A top of the line alien energy handgun. While it has a short range and a very varied damage output, it is extremely fast to fire (3 AP with Bonus Rate of Fire, just 2 with Fast Shot and the aforementioned perk) and has a very generous ammo capacity. If found, it is likely to be the mainstay of a player's energy weapons build, alongside the turbo plasma rifle.

Particularly useful with perks that increase critical hit chance.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

This alien blaster was to be refereed to as Firelance in a cut content dialogue with Jason Zimmerman.[1] This is a reference to the identically named Martian weapon appearing in the Wasteland Paragraphs, in the red herring Mars plot.
