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