While Easter Eggs in video games are designed to be rare finds for the observant player, it is more rare now to find a game that omits them these days. Open-world RPG titles like Fallout 4 provide all of the room for a developer to hide a little something special within that game’s environment. Players will find all kinds of references to movies, comics, and video games throughout the wasteland, and some can be more obvious than others. While we all know exactly what games “Red Menace” and “Pipfall” are referencing, some Easter Eggs are a little more obscure. One such reference was found by an Imgur contributor that goes by the name 1Times.
Throughout the game, players are able to collect junk items called Flux Sensors from all across the wasteland. 1Times discovered that one of these Flux Sensors has an interesting serial number marked on it.

It turns out “CM-88B 180924609” is, in fact, a serial number for a CM-88B Bison starfreighter named the Nostromo; the setting of the 1979 film Alien. For those unfamiliar with the film, the Nostromo is the ship that Ellen Ripley and crew work on, and where they are hunted by a lone Xenomorph alien. 1Times included a screenshot from the film to prove the serial number matches.

For those interested in finding the item for themselves, 1Times also included a Map reference and the interior of the shack he found it in.
