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!

Ion beamer is an Energy Weapon in Wasteland.


Described as a strange weapon, the ion beamer is a powerful device able to rain devastation upon the enemy.


This unique weapon resembles the laser rifle in that it gets 20 rounds out of a power pack and, like all energy weapons, can be fired in burst and autofire modes. First, though, it does deal more damage, and is thus best reserved for your best shooter.


  • Only one is found, in the hands of Brother Austin of the Guardians of the Old Order.
  • (Unconfirmed) Sold/dropped as loot by trader in Bastion Church
