Alien Crash Site

|Related Quests||Not of This World|
The Alien Crash Site is an unmarked location in the Capital Wasteland. It's located directly north of MDPL-13 Power Station or west of the Greener Pastures Disposal Site. When you get within 50 metres of the site, a transmission signal will appear on your Pip-Boy, so you'll know you're close. At the site you can find an Alien ship called the Recon Craft Theta which appears to have smashed through a house and slid about thirty feet through a cliff before coming to a halt. It must of landed with a heavy impact because the front of the cockpit is smashed and the dead body of an Alien life form can be found lying in front of it.
The Alien's body can't be looted, but you will find a unique weapon called the Alien Blaster next to it. This weapon has a damage of 100 and a 100% Critical Hit rate making it one of the most powerful weapons in the game. You can also find 120 Alien Power Cells surrounding the Alien. These cells glow in the dark, so if you're having trouble finding them all, you can wait until darkness falls over the Capital Wasteland.
 Mothership Zeta
When you add the Mothership Zeta DLC pack, the Recon Craft Theta Beacon will be transmitted all over the Capital Wasteland instead of just 50 metres from the site and a marker will be placed on your map. Heading back to the crash site now will result in you being abducted by Aliens and brought upon their Mothership.
During the Among the Stars quest line, the player will need to destroy three generators to proceed onto the Space Walk. When the player enters the Hangar, you will see the Aliens rasising the crashed Alien Recon Craft up from the Capital Wasteland. It is then held between several gravity spikes. When the player reaches the generator, a large amount of Aliens will begin to assault your position. You can use the gravity spike that are holding Recon Craft Theta to damage the Aliens.
After completing the Mothership Zeta quests and returning to the Capital Wasteland, the area in which Recon Craft Theta lay will now have cleared and will have been replaced with a Alien Homing Beacon which allows you to return to the Mothership at any time.
