|For an overview of alien blaster models, see alien blaster.|
The alien blaster is a weapon of great extremes. It has the highest damage-per-action-point of all single-shot weapons in Fallout 2, as well as the second-highest ammunition capacity of all single-shot weapons in both games. It is also highly accurate. Offsetting these strengths is its extremely short range of 10 hexes, the second-shortest in Fallout 2.
The weapon is affected by the Weapon Accurate perk, which grants it a 20 percent increased chance to hit.
- The alien blaster can be bought from Willy in a random encounter north of Modoc.
- Additionally, the alien blaster can be obtained in the Enclave Oil Rig trap room puzzle by repairing a random terminal and having Speech 100% and tagged (and none of the other listed skills the same).
Despite the weapon's combat values being the same as in Fallout, the weapon is less effective against floaters, who have higher resistances to electrical damage in Fallout 2.
