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!

From time to time while you're on patrol, you're gonna meet folks who'll want to help you out. Most have their own reasons for volunteering - a grudge against somebody, an excuse to get out of town, whatever. Well, we welcome them all. Extra hands are always appreciated, but we try to limit the number of volunteers in one ranger team to three. Any more than that and it's hard to keep 'em in line.

An older Ranger in immaculate uniform, Evan haunts the Ranger Citadel cafeteria, processing new recruits.
