New weapons, perk revealed for Mothership Zeta

If you’d rather Mothership Zeta’s mysterious alien culture remain, well, mysterious, you should probably go ahead and plug your ears and avert your eyes. If not, though, MTV Multiplayer‘s new info on the DLC is right up your alley.

“Mothership Zeta is full of the most high tech weaponry in the game. It includes a Shock Baton for melee fighters, multiple new firearms including an Alien Atomizer, a pistol, and the Alien Disintegrator, a new rifle. There’s also a new grenade type, a Cryo Grenade, which freezes enemies for a short period of time. On top of that there are new unique weapons, and a new heavy weapon,” said Bethesda’s Jeff Gardiner.

He also revealed a new perk called “Xenotech Expert,” which increases your damage-dealing prowess with alien weapons.

On top of that, somewhere on the ship, you’ll be able to find an item called “Alien Epoxy,” a marvel of alien engineering that repairs items by 25% without a duplicate item. Better still, you have the option of returning to the ship whenever you want, so even if you miss an alien whosit or whatsit while roaming the ship’s corridors, you can always come back.

The DLC’s out this August for Xbox 360 and PC owners, while PS3 Fallout faithful will have to wait until September.

    I cannot wait. I Played out all the other DLC, and looking forward to this. I am sad that this is supposedly the last of the DLC, it would be nice to have an even 6th DLC.

    Bring on Elder Scrolls 5!

    Shame there’s no level cap increase, I have two alien blasters already.

    This was the first game in about a decade that, after purchasing it, I took back to the shop before spending more than eight hours in it. Fallout 3, to me, was boring, fiddly and pedantic. I’m amazed how it managed to pull in so many people so deeply.

    I agree.

    You should play The Witcher, sticK. I think it might be the best RPG I’ve played in years. And that’s coming from a Mass Effect fanbot total.

    I agree.

    Glad the Fallout 3 unenthusiasts are starting to crawl out from the cracks.
