CharacteristicsEdit

The alien blaster is an energy weapon with decent damage, but it is impractical due to its very rare ammo. A fusion mag mod will convert the weapon to fire fusion cells, but will also effectively make the weapon a weak laser pistol.

LocationEdit

NotesEdit

  • Ammunition for the alien blaster exists southeast of Black Mountain Ordnance Works, at TNT dome #2. The plans to convert the weapon to fusion cells exists here also.
  • Like other ammunition drops in the game, the alien blaster rounds at TNT Dome #2 will periodically respawn, allowing for replenishing the supply without converting the weapon to fusion cells.
