Fallout 4 hides plenty of easter eggs inside but not all of them are easy to find. Players will have to keep a keen eye and look for classic game references, film references and much more.

From Donkey Kong to Jawa Death Scene to TED on a toilet, there is plenty of find.

Alien Blaster and Crashed UFO
The pistol was obtainable in Fallout 3, New Vegas and now Fallout 4. Reach level 20 or above and head towards Greentop Nursery. From there, go west towards Old Gullet Sinkhole. Once you’re there, an event will trigger if you are on the right level (20 or above).

You will notice an Alien Ship crashing to the ground. Go to the crash site and follow the green trail of blood. Kill the alien and you will get the Alien Blaster.
