Alien blaster is an unique alien weapon in Fallout.


The following section is transcluded from Alien blaster. To modify, please edit the source page.

A special alien blaster with a different design and color compared to others alien weapons and using small energy cells, which could indicate that this a weapon prototype was to avoid having to replenish alien power cell in Earth. It shoots a purple electric bolt and is particularly devastating as a close range weapon.

Gameplay attributes

A top of the line alien energy handgun. While it has a short range and a very varied damage output, it is extremely fast to fire (3 AP with Bonus Rate of Fire, just 2 with Fast Shot and the aforementioned perk) and has a very generous ammo capacity. If found, it is likely to be the mainstay of a player's energy weapons build, alongside the turbo plasma rifle.

Particularly useful with perks that increase critical hit chance.


Behind the scenes

This alien blaster was to be refereed to as Firelance in a cut content dialogue with Jason Zimmerman.[1] This is a reference to the identically named Martian weapon appearing in the Wasteland Paragraphs, in the red herring Mars plot.
