Once you have Dogmeat, return to the Overseer’s room. Tell Dogmeat to fetch an item for you. He should bust open the container, and hand you the Cryolator gun waiting inside. Ha! Anyway, I walk you through the entire process in the video above, if you’re curious.

So, why would you want this gun in the first place? It’s really powerful!

Some people are calling it the best gun in the game, and if you watch the video, you’ll see why. The Cryolator appears to one-shot-kill many enemies by freezing them solid. That said, if you get the Cryolator early in the game, you’ll probably be pressed for ammo. It comes with at least 200 rounds (check Dogmeat’s inventory, if you can’t find them), and purchasing them from vendors is a tad expensive. But that’s OK, really. Great as the gun is, you’ll probably want to save your bullets for strong enemies. If you’re flush on cash, though, I’ve seen the vendor at Drumlin Diner carry the ammo.

Happy freezing! And if you’re having trouble getting back into the vault, remember: there’s the elevator button in a booth near the entrance.
