Behind the scenes
The alien disintegrator appearance is that of a space-age blunderbuss, which was a common appearance in 1950's pulp fiction/sci-fi magazines.
Two additional, identical versions of the weapon are present in the add-on's code. Examined in the G.E.C.K., they differ only by their IDs, DLC05WeapRifleB and DLC05WeapRifleC. They are otherwise identical to normal alien disintegrators and are even affected by the Xenotech Expert perk, but cannot be used to repair normal alien disintegrators or its variant. Though not placed anywhere in the add-on, these weapons have been known to show up on occasion for reasons unknown.
