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!

Blunt Weapons is a combat skill in Wasteland 2.


There's nothing subtle about a blunt instrument. It breaks bones and splatters brains. Blunt weapons do a lot of damage... when they hit. The Armor Penetration is good and, if you do land a Critical Hit, the damage multiplier is high, but the Critical Chance is significantly lower than for Bladed Weapons.

  • High damage
  • Good Armor Penetration
  • Can use Precision Strikes
  • High AP cost to attack
  • Low Critical Hit Chance
  • Melee range only
