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!

For the handgun in Wasteland 2, see M1911. For more information about the M1911 pistol, see M1911 pistol on Wikipedia.

The M1911A1 is a Clip Pistol weapon in Wasteland.

Background[]

The 1911A1 was the standard sidearm of the previous two world wars. The .45 slug, held in an 8-shot magazine, was first developed to stop Moro rebels in the Philippines. In its current role, it has no trouble slowing down desert raiders or the occasional mutant cactus. Many Desert Rangers find this a perfect weapon to take with them when they first head into the wastelands.[1]

It is also quite popular among various wasteland vagabonds, however its low magazine capacity makes the VP91Z 9mm Pistol a better choice as a sidearm.

Characteristics[]

The M1911 is one of the starting weapons of the Rangers, the other being a VP91Z 9mm pistol.
