It is one of the many special antennas used to make the radar-guided repulsive field around the Big Mountain Research and Development Center, and for the transmissions of the X-2 array.
The X-2 antennae is a high-tier melee weapon with high damage, but slow rate of attack. Its selling point however, is when used as a weapon, the antennae focuses brainwave patterns and does electrical damage. This causes 50 points of extra damage to robots and 20 points of damage to power armor users.
- The antennae is found at the top of the X-2 transmitter antenna array. By walking up the ladder on the satellite dish, it can be taken from the center.
- It is needed for the quest X-2: Strange Transmissions!, but is not a quest item and can be dropped right after obtaining it, as the blue print is already transferred to Dr. Klein.
- If your Strength level does not meet the recommended level for this weapon (7), then the attack speed of the antenna is painfully slow, and could possibly make it the slowest weapon in the game, regardless of the fact that the super sledge is 5 lbs heavier than it and attacks faster.
