Gametitle-VB.pngThe following is based on Van Buren and is not canon.

Build a freeze-gun was going to be a quest in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios. It was located in B.O.M.B.-001.[1]

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

A bit of investigating in the Maintenance Room will turn up a schematic of a prototype freeze gun which the PC can use to assemble a gun. However, not all the parts for the gun are available in the Maintenance Room, so the PC will need to find viable substitutes for the components. Needed components are; freezer coils (kitchen); water and containers (bathroom); crushed crystal (TV in rec. room); power source (S.O.R.-1000 Beta or Delta). The remainder parts are in the Maintenance room. Once assembled, the gun works great against most armors since if super-freezes joints and moving parts, so the gun is effective against robots as well as the NCR guys. The gun will not necessarily kill a foe, but it will render it immobile for 1 to 2 rounds, giving the player uncontested turns against the crippled enemy. Assembly takes 20 minutes of in-game time.

Character type completion breakdown[edit | edit source]

  1. Combat Boy, Diplomacy Boy, Stealth Boy - Assembling the freeze gun requires a bit of Mechanics of Science skill (either > 100).
  2. Science Boy - Should be able to do it.
