i got a feeling that this gun is going to be REALLY over powered

Anyone played Destroy All Humans? Maybe the weapon will be like the same-titled weapon in that game. Gabriel Cortez 00:18, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Anyone else think this will be a rifle version of the alien blaster?

We're fucked. Plain as day. I don't know what it does, but it might as well shoot InstaMash. Nitpicker of the Wastes 19:32, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
I know dude seriously. This DLC seems like it would be impossible without being level 30 and having REALLY good armor, like Hellfire or T-51 or something. Weapons, of course, won't be a problem.R3dflag 23:13, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

It's in Point Lookout, not Mothership Zeta. Also, it's a new Gatling Laser. It has 141 DAM at a 50% condition. It weighs 18, has a value of 525 caps, and runs on EC Pack.

Sorry for not signing the above post :S JimmyBassatti 23:33, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

No, this is in Mothership Zeta. And cite your sources. //--TehK 23:35, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

How is it Mothership Zeta when I just got done with Point Lookout, and I have it sitting in my Tenpenny Tower Suite?

Cause your lying? Or your talking about the "Dismemberer". //--TehK 23:43, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

No? Dismember is an axe? And Disintegrator is a Gatling Laser? You get it inside of the light house during the last main quest of Point Lookout.

Could somebody else prove this? And also, this weapon was confirmed by beth that it was in Mothership Zeta. //--TehK 23:46, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

For everybody thinking Mothership Zeta's going to be impossible to play, I have a sinking feeling Bethesda's going to bring us a travesty similar to the Steel Saw. Just a prediction.

Weird. When I picked it up, it said Disintegrator. Could this be considered a glitch? And no, I'm not pulling a Maccy Man. JimmyBassatti 23:52, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

Awhoops. Need to remember to sign.

Anyhow, for the Disintegrator, the interview that brought us its name also said it was a rifle. After that: pics or it didn't happen.

Magmortified 23:52, 23 June 2009 (UTC)Magmortified

Well, I'll see if it does it again on another character. But when I picked it up, it said "Distengrator", so I thought "Oh, unique gating laser?" and took it. If it does happen, I'll post some pictures of it.

I scoured the Lab for hours, I found 2 Gatling lasers, but nothing called the Desintegrator. Maybe you're thinking of the Microwave Emitter, but I seriously doubt that. SplittingTheAtom 21:45, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

No disentegrator...Been in Point Lookout searching for Easter eggs... Funny thing, I've been swimming forever looking for Pa's fishing aid... I keep thinking the Bethesda hid it somewhere :P BloodOmelet 14:06 June 30, 2009 (UTC)

It's not listed in the GECK. Methinks you're bullshitting us. Pararaptor 05:54, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Blood Omlet, they cut Pa's Fishing Aid lol Reconmarine

Let me get this straight. If there was any sort of unique Gatling Laser, this site would have had it up within 1 day after PL's release. You're bullshitting us, whether you realize it or not.Coodude26 02:45, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

Come on dudes! G-A-T-L-I-N-G L-A-S-E-R can look alot like D-I-S-I-N-T-E-G-R-A-T-O-R if you only saw it for a split second in the game.


Come on... seriously falling for that guys bullshit? --UrbN 05:47, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Right,also,this disintegrator will probably be a fuckign rip-off of the destroy all humans weapon. Mr.Wolf 17:30, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

I have an odd feeling its going to be a reskinned railway rifle, with a different ammo type and fire rate.--Bayonetta 17:35, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

A rip off of the Destroy all humans weapon?!... Umm Destroy all Humans is a rip off of every 50's 60's etc alien spoof\horror\sci-fi related media ever made. And so technically YOU CANNOT COMPARE this with 'just' destroy all humans- rather look outside the bloody box.. and the fact that the whole 'add on' as well as a lot of other fallout 'easter eggs' etc is a nod to what we percieved aliens to be like in the media throughout the entire 50's 60's etc. Other wise we would be sitting here all day saying 'nah, rubbish! - this xxx is a rip off of xxx It makes me sick blah blah, the original was better because they did it first blah blah!' And so my point is no matter how you argue me on this one Destroy all humans only comparison is that they are both nodding the same thing and nobody is ripping off anything bar what we percieved things to be like back in the day where becoming a spaceman and star trek, the space race and all that iconic imagery was fucking cool. TheRepublicOfDave 14:25, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

Well anywho... the pic of it looks pretty sick. --UrbN 22:10, 24 July 2009 (UTC)


Can we get a protect on this article please? A lot of vandal kids have been screwing with it lately WouldYouKindly 04:54, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

How is it NOT like the M1 Garand?

Ok, THIS is an M1 Garand, and THIS is the disintegrator. The Dis. looks very similar to the Garand because the shapes are pretty much the same, and judging by the blue power source, I'm guessing the alien weapon even reloads from the same place as the Garand. --Clean Up 00:40, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

It looks nothing like an m1 garand. I own one and if anything it looks like a machine gun with a muzzle compensator on the front. Just because the energy cell is there doesnt make it a garand copy. Do you know how many rifles load there. All of mine do. My m1 garand, my mausers, my mosin nagants, etc. Need I saw more?--Kingclyde 00:44, 15 July 2009 (UTC)
Oh come on...
Disint. vs M1 Garand.jpg
It has a stereotypical rifle shape that has just been "Alianized"(based on the alien blaster, which is why the barrel looks like that). And the reason I said it's probably based off an M1 Garand was because Mosin Negants and Mausers are bolt-action, and other semi-automatic rifles like the Gewehr and M14 were loaded from the bottom (or look off from the rifle). Really, how are you not seeing this? --Clean Up 01:13, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

I can see it, but it could look like a billion different rifles. just having a lowered stock and a slim frame does NOT make it look like an M1. Maybe if it was brown, was bolt-action, and shot bulklets, then I'd agree. But this is just supposed to be a regular-looking rifle. You could say that it looks like every rifle in existence, but it doesn't change the fact that it's completely pointless to point out, considering none of us have even used it yet.Coodude26 02:41, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

My point exactly. It can look like any rifle and it is a useless point of trivia anyways.--Kingclyde 02:50, 15 July 2009 (UTC)
Well I pointed it out because the weapon completely reminds me of the Garand every time I see it (the Garand is semi-auto BTW, not bolt-action), but at this point I'm guessing it's just me. --Clean Up 20:57, 15 July 2009 (UTC)
I think it looks like an early long barrel blunderbuss made of space age stainless and LEDs. Especially since this was a common theme for 50's SciFi alien weaponry. Axier 14:42, February 23, 2010 (UTC)
Just saying, but why would a highly intelligent extra-terrestrial race base one of their complex weapons around a crude weapon like ours? User -P.jpg Nukey - talk 22:35, May 18, 2010 (UTC)

Ok guys just stop

Whoever keeps putting that it runs on APC's just stop doing it. NOBODY KNOWS what it runs on yet. We'll have to wait and see. It could be anything SplittingTheAtom 13:52, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

whats the point of the alien atomizer if this uses the same ammo and is better in every way

The sheer hell of it,atomizers are lighter,and somewhat faster firing.ANd looks better. The Second Wolf Brother. 14:16, 4 August 2009 (UTC)


Are you sure the "jam" animation is incorrect? Cuz the weapon makes a distinct sound, like powering up the flashlight of a camera or something. Also, when reloading the Destabilizer I cant see myself actually removing something from the weapon and what I seem to be putting back in seems "dislocated" from the holes in the weapon where a Module might be. Just my 2 cents. --Radnus 18:05, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Actually, it seems that both of the reload animations are screwy. The Disintegrator uses its own jam animation for reloading, and the Destabilizer uses the Enclave Plasma Pistol's reload. I think they were intended to use something like the AER9 Laser Rifle's, where the Module is actually removed. Nitty 22:17, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Since both the Disintegrator and the Destabilizer have the incorrect reload animation, can someone on the PC version use the G.E.C.K. to see what the reload animation should be. I assume that the correct one should be in the G.E.C.K. but that it is just not attributed to the guns properly. Insincerity 03:13, October 6, 2009 (UTC)

If pressing the button on the top is supposedly the jam animation, then what do you call it when the PC shakes the Disintegrator and hits the side of it, after pressing the top button? 11:43, May 11, 2010 (UTC)

Possible Bugs

I don't know about you guys, but there have been several instances where I've seen the DMG value for the Disintegrator drop for an unknown reason. I don't remember the reduced value for DMG at the moment, however it had dropped at least 5 pts. Initially I had chalked it up to side effect from the biogel, but after checking my status in the pipboy I could see no such condition afflicting me (I didn't notice a drop in DMG with the Atomizer or other energy-based weapons, but I could have glossed over it). I'm not sure if anyone else is experiencing fluctuating damage values, but if so, do you think it's the weapon itself or simply a status effect that goes un-indicated in the status tab?--DashMan54 13:31, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

I sometimes get this, with all weapons, when I'm putting them away into a locker in my Megaton house. I think the game ignores one of your Point Lookout damage increasing perks temporarily. When you back out, it should be fine. Sometimes my 10 mm Submachine guns only do 60 instead of 90, as if one of my PL perks wasn't there anymore. ~Unholy

Incorrect info

Isn't this part just the game's auto-aim:

  • Sometimes you may notice that an enemy may be out of your crosshairs (or on them) and if they are moving (or standing still) when you fire, the shot will follow them.

And if so, should it be removed? {{SUBST:SigFarvei}} 16:27, February 9, 2010 (UTC)


yeah sometimes I fire it and the shots hit but do no damage, OR the just go straight through. Does this happen on other consoles or just my Xbox 360?

Reload Animation

I'm trying to make the ballistic fist in New Vegas at last a little more realistic, and would like to know what reload animation this uses in Geck, as the New Vegas files for it are basically just the textures and model. 20:40, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
