Alien blaster pistolEdit

Alien blaster pistol

The alien blaster pistol is a unique weapon in Fallout 4 and a highly rare one in Fallout 76, in Fallout 4 can be found being wielded by an alien, in a cave near the unmarked UFO crash site location. It uses the limited alien blaster round for ammunition, but can be modified to use standard fusion cells. In Fallout 76 it can be found at the toxic pond and wreckage, inside a broken safe, submerged in a pool of toxic water. A unique version of the Alien blaster pistol called The V.A.T.S. Unknown can be obtained as a reward for completing the quest Mission Out-of-Control given by Sofia Daguerre.
