Fallout 76: How To Get The Alien Blaster | Easter Egg Location Guide

There is exactly one Alien Blaster you can acquire in Fallout 76 — and it doesn’t even come with ammo. The Alien Blaster is an exotic energy weapon that doesn’t drop from enemies, and you won’t earn it in a quest. Nope, you’ll just have to find this sucker, sitting in a container at the bottom of a random pond. Good luck finding that without a little extra help.

Even after you’ve found the Alien Blaster, you won’t be able to shoot it until you track down a special mod. There’s a hard-to-find mod that allows you to substitute Fusion Cell ammo for Alien Blaster Ammo, making the Alien Blaster into a weapon you can actually use. The hidden weapon mod does come with a couple of Alien Blaster bullets — literally. You’ll find three. That mod is required, and you’ll learn how to get both the Alien Blaster and the ammo mod in the full guide below.

The safe with the Alien Blaster also contains a Rusted Key. Next, travel to the Mount Blair Trainyard and unlock the case on the rooftop [Lockpick 2 Required] — you’ll find the TNT Dome Key 2. Use the TNT Dome Key at the Black Mountain Ordnance Works, south of the Tyler County Fairgrounds.
