Wasteland Wiki

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!

CLASSIC is the ruleset powering Wasteland 2 and its character systems. The acronym stands for the seven primary attributes.


The seven primary attributes determine derived statistics and are expressed in a range from 1 to 10.

Derived statistics[]

Derived statistics are determined by the attributes.

Additionally, high character attributes yield bonuses:

  • Ranged Hit Bonus: Increased chance to hit targets with ranged weapons. Every point of Coordination translates into a 1% bonus (eg. a Ranger with 10 in Coordination gains the full 10% bonus).
  • Melee Critical Hit Bonus: Chance to score a critical hit with melee weapons. Every point of Awareness translates into a 1% bonus (eg. a Ranger with 10 in Awareness has a 10% bonus chance to score a critical hit).


Skills are also expressed in a range from 1 to 10 and are divided into three separate branches: Combat, Knowledge, and General Skills.
