A Fallout 4 modder has discovered game files for a harpoon gun within the game's files. It may be possible that we'll have more reason to go in the water.

A Fallout 4 modder who goes by the name of “xxdeathknight72xx” has discovered a secret weapon hidden within the game’s files.

The harpoon gun doesn’t appear anywhere within Fallout 4, indicating that it could feature after an update or DLC release. Interestingly, it leaves a faint trail of bubbles in its wake when equipped by the player, so it’s likely that it’s supposed to be used underwater.

Players can go underwater in Fallout 4, but there isn’t much down there. That may all change in the near future if this harpoon gun is to serve any purpose.

Fallout 4 game director Todd Howard said that upcoming DLC packs will be created based on fan feedback. With the discovery of this secret harpoon gun, players may start requesting underwater content. After all, life is better down where it’s wetter, under the sea!

Fallout 4 is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It’s unclear when the first DLC pack will be released, but you may want to explore the Wasteland for a while before even thinking about more content.
