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!

Critical Chance determines how likely a Ranger is to inflict increased damage in combat.

Overview[]

The basic chance to crit is primarily determined by the skill level, according to the table below:

Brawling 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% 70% 80% 90% 100%

How it works[]

If a critical hit is rolled, the damage is determined primarily by the weapon critical damage modifier. I.e. if a critical hit is rolled and the weapon has a 1.4x damage modifier, then whatever raw damage was rolled, it is increased by a factor of 1.4.

For melee weapons and brawling, the game will also factor in the Bonus Melee Crit. Mult., which adds additional damage based on the Ranger's Strength attribute. I.e., on top of the standard critical hit multiplier, the weapon also deals damage based on the melee crit multiplier.
