The alien blaster is a energy weapon with decent damage output but is impractical for regular use due to the rarity of alien blaster rounds. A fusion magazine mod will convert the weapon to shoot the more common fusion cells but will also reduce the damage output and ammo capacity.
The weapon is made of a combination of a steel-like metal, orange and red plastic-like furnishings, with highlights of blue pulsing energy. On the side is a button that opens a blue ringed cap. When the cap is open, the player character will load alien blaster rounds into it. The two pronged sights are also lined up through a hole with no recognizable front sight or barrel.
