It's the Hispanic Heritage Month at FANDOM! It's worth noting that Wasteland, 33 years ago, was one of the first games to allow players to create Hispanic characters with the nationality selection. What's more, the starting Hispanic character, Snake Vargas, eventually became one of the most important movers and shakers of the Arizona wasteland, saving the world twice over as a Desert Ranger!

.38 semi-automatic is a tier 1 handgun in Wasteland 2.


This semi-automatic self-loading pistol dates back over a hundred years. Its reliability, slim width, and performance, all contribute to its excellent service record.


The weapon alerts enemies (generates noise) in a 15 unit radius.

A good replacement for your starting handguns until Marakovs or Midnight Specials can be acquired. Later on - simply sell or strip it for parts.
