Fallout 4 is a game of dogs, robots and secrets. Secrets that can unlock a few treasure troves of goods, which your infinite pockets are aching for. There’s dozens of fantastic weapons waiting to be discovered in Bethesda’s latest game, provided that you’re lucky enough to stumble onto an event or two. And one particular piece of tech, comes from the skies above.
I want to believe that alien life exists, just like Fox Mulder did. And then I want to slow-mo shoot it in the face and loot the tech off of its corpse.
There’re a number of theories attached to finding the Alien Blaster. Some say that you need to be level 20, others say that you need to trigger an event. But if you hear NPCs talking about a falling object from the skies, that’s a good indicator that you can follow these steps to get the rare gun:
- Go to Oberland Station
- From there, go east and scale a rockface until you see some burning trees
- You’ll then find a crashed spaceship
- On the ground, you’ll see a trail of green blood. Follow the trail towards a cave.
- Go into the cave, and you’ll spot a wounded alien.
- KILL IT. KILL IT DEAD!
- Congrats, you now have the alien blaster!
Here’s the catch: The alien pistol uses Alien Blaster rounds. You’ll find some on the alien corpse when you loot it, but otherwise, don’t expect to see much of it in the wasteland. It’s a great nod to Fallout 3, and the Alien Blaster packs a hell of a punch. Worth the hunt, we reckon.
