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!

Jackhammer is a tier 6 shotgun in Wasteland 2.


A less civilized weapon from a more civilized time.


The weapon alerts enemies (generates noise) in a 20 unit radius.

Fires in a 45 degree cone angle.

Endgame shotgun. Upgrade when possible.

High risk because of the jam chance, but the damage is on par with explosives if used on a character with the Combat Shooting skill.


  • Hollywood: Rambeau's gun shop.
  • Ranger Citadel: Harvey's shop during the endgame.
  • Griffith Park: Priest Sprayer's shop.
  • Possible spawn in various high level locked containers in Hollywood and late game areas. A unique version of this gun also drops from Schwag, called the Infernator with an added special burnt status effect, but without the ability to use Burst Shot.
