Made you look!

While I'm becoming antsy just thinking about the last Fallout 3 add-on, "Mothership Zeta," the latest news surrounding the downloadable content pack is helping to calm me down. MTV Multiplayer once again spoke with Bethesda's Jeff Gardiner and he finally gave out specifics on the new weapons and unlockable perk.

"Mothership Zeta," Jeff says, "includes a Shock Baton for melee fighters, multiple new firearms including an Alien Atomizer, a pistol, and the Alien Disintegrator, a new rifle." But that's not all. "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."

And the new perk? It's called "Xenotech Expert," and it "increases the damage you do with alien weapons, including the Alien Blaster," which was a weapon that came on the original Fallout 3 disc.

Jeff also mentioned that players would be able to return to the mothership after completing the add-on. Apparently there's also an item on the spacecraft that can repair your overused and most likely rare items by 25% called the "Alien Epoxy." How incredibly useful!
