Fallout 4 features a hidden easter egg known as the Alien crash site, which rewards players with a one-of-a-kind weapon called the Alien Blaster.

Key Takeaways

One of the best ways to keep track of the event is by encountering a sonic boom randomly in your 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.

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.

  1. First things first, you will need to visit the Hubologist’s Camp.
  2. This location can be found south of Nuka World. Here you are meeting Dara, in a spacesuit.

  2. After returning the suits, Dara offers another quest.

After getting 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.
