Who Is Vasco In Starfield?
Vasco is one of the earliest models of robots, but Malcolm Livingstone updated him.
Malcolm Livingstone is a member of Constellation, which specializes in robotics.
Vasco’s rifle attachment is an EM weapon system that does increased damage to shields and electronics.
Additionally, he can use his chest laser for close-range combat or cutting through obstacles.
His aneutronic fusion reactor enhances Vasco’s carry capacity.
This reactor produces extra power for his systems, allowing him to store more items in his internal compartments.
Further, Vasco’s personality is friendly and curious, but he also has a sense of duty and loyalty to Constellation and its mission.
He will call the player by name and rank and comment on the locations and events they encounter.
What Weapons Can Vasco Use In Starfield?
Vasco can use any weapon you give him.
However, you must equip it on him in his weapon menu and give him one Ammo.
Further, some players have reported that Vasco does not use the weapons they give him and only shoots his default laser.
This might be a bug or a limitation of his AI.
Further, players say companions need one ammunition for whatever weapon you equip them with.
It will provide unlimited Ammo and make you transfer over one Ammo for that particular gun.
Further, companions’ default weapon upgrade is impossible.
Vasco’s default weapon is a full-auto laser rifle, the weakest version of the laser weapon category.
Therefore, giving him a better weapon as soon as possible is recommended.
Some players also say they can’t equip Vasco with spacesuits, helmets and packs.
Further, Vasco will not switch between different weapons if you give him more than one.
Some of the best weapons for Vasco are:
1. Eternity’s Gate
This is a legendary particle beam weapon that deals massive damage and has a high rate of fire.
Players can find it in the Vault of Eternity, a secret location in Elysium.
To get Eternity’s Gate, you must defeat the Emissary during the main quest, Revelation.
It has two notable effects: Skip Shot and Handloading.
It also has an Anti-Personnel effect, which gives it +10% damage against humans.
2. Plasma Caster
This rare plasma weapon fires explosive plasma bolts that can simultaneously damage multiple enemies.
It can be bought from Rex, a weapons dealer on the space station Orion.
Players can customize it with different mods, such as a scope, a silencer, or a capacitor.
It is the rarest weapon, and you must complete a quest for the Emissary to obtain it.
The Emissary will ask the player to retrieve a relic from an ancient temple on a remote planet.
Hence, he will reward them with the Plasma Caster if they succeed.
