The Alien crash event opens up new possibilities and story lore that engages players with different game elements. You must first trigger the event to visit the crash site and obtain the crazy alien weapon, Alien Blaster.
Players must note that the alien crash encounter occurs randomly during the playthrough. Typically, players experience this event between levels 15 and 25.
One of the best ways to keep track of the event is by encountering a sonic boom randomly in your Fallout 4 world. Your companion will also respond to the event by saying, “The hell? Did you see that?” further confirming that the event is now in place.
After triggering the alien crash event, simply visit the crash site to explore. You can follow the smoke trail from the alien ship in the sky to locate it.
To reach the crash site, head to the Oberland Station northwest of Diamond City.
When you arrive, you will immediately see debris or the aftermath of the crash.
Follow the fire, and you will see a sizeable alien ship that has crashed into the ground.
The trail will lead you to a dark cave that holds another piece of the puzzle. Make sure to draw your best weapon to kill whatever is in the dark cave. As soon as you enter the cave, you can meet a green friend from the outer world.
Alien is highly hostile. I will recommend using the best weapons you have to put this guy down and obtain your Alien Blaster.
Alien Blaster Stats
Alien Blaster is one of the unique weapons with high stats and rarity in the game. From the looks, it looks straight from the future with laser shots that can deal heavy damage to the enemies.
With this weapon on your side, you will not have to worry about killing higher-level enemies in the different quests.
These stats may vary from character to character based on the perks. But still, this is enormous damage for a rare pistol.
Acquiring Alien Blaster From Nuka World
You can obtain the “Hub’s Alien Blaster,” a legendary variant of the alien pistol, through Nuka World in Fallout 4. To acquire it, you need the Nuka World DLC installed.
This location can be found south of Nuka World. Here you are meeting Dara, in a spacesuit.
In the initial encounter, she gives a side quest: retrieve five space suits.
After returning the suits, Dara offers another quest.
Moving forward, after finishing the second quest, Dara will reward players with the mighty Hub’s Alien Blaster.
After obtaining the weapon, you will also have to complete other quests of Dara to earn more rewards like Alien Blaster rounds and Fusion Cores.
My Experience With Alien Blaster
Alien Blaster is a neat weapon coming with a unique quest that demands players to pay attention to the surroundings. I was not able to get this weapon in my first playthrough. But I encountered the event triggering an alien location in the second playthrough of Fallout 4 with easy access to the Alien Blaster.
I recommend the same if you still have not got your hands on the unique blaster weapon.
