WL2 Skill Icon Computer Science.png

Computer Science is a skill in Wasteland 2.

Characteristics

Take this skill if you want to know more than how to turn it off and turn it on again. Allows the user to interface, hack or repair computers and other similar equipment found in the wasteland. Can also be used to rewire robots and some synthetics to fight on your side.

Importantly, it also has an offensive use: Using it on enemy robots allows Rangers to turn them permanently over to their side. They will self-destruct at the end of the round, though the caveat is that the Rangers do not receive experience for destroying them that way.

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! If you're interested in learning more about Hispanic heritage and how it's featured in modern entertainment, join the official Fandom HHM Discord server!
