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!

MacTavish is a character in Wasteland 3.


A native of Colorado with an incredibly fake Glaswegian accent,[1] MacTavish is a fraud in more ways than one. Not only did he learn the accent by training based on a Braveheart VHS tape he found in a burned-out car,[2] but he also runs a crooked machine shop, where he pushed drugs under the cover of oil changes. When the Marshals finally caught up with him, he was sentenced to the pillories, where the cold destroyed his ears and nose, but did little to improve his notoriously foul disposition. Donning a wrestler's mask in Scottish tartan, he vowed revenge against the Patrirach - and eventually wound up letting the Dorseys into the city, endangering his boss, Faran Brygo's, syndicate.

  2. Wasteland 3 protagonist: "That's Scottish? It sounds like you're eating a sock."
    MacTavish: "Damn right it's Scottish. I learned it from this video, Braveheart, which was right there when they made Scotland. It's gotta be right! 'Course, I found that tape in a burnt out car, so it could be a wee bit warped..."
