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!

For the Wasteland 3 skill, see: Leadership (Wasteland 3)

Leadership is a skill in Wasteland 2.


A true leader is made, not born. With this skill you will inspire others to trust and follow you. Use this power only for good.

First, your companion NPCs will listen to your orders more often and go rogue less. Second, your presence instills confidence in your team, increasing their chance-to-hit when they're near you.


The effectiveness is directly tied to Charisma, which determines the radius in which it affects other team mates.

Only the character with the highest Leadership bestows a bonus, as they do not stack.
