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!

Cheap Russian knock-off of a Chinese knock-off. It'll still knock someone off.

Marakov is a tier 2 handgun in Wasteland 2.

An unimpressive gun as far as its stats go, the Marakov is used either if all of your pistoleros haven't got their own Midnight Special yet or if you're lucky enough to stumble upon it early on, when it's a welcome replacement for the lousy tier-1 handguns. When .38 revolvers start appearing on the scene, the Marakov can be sold or dismantled without hesitation.

The weapon alerts enemies (generates noise) in a 15 unit radius.

  • The Makarov pistol or PM (Russian: Пистолет Макарова, Pistolet Makarova, literally Makarov's Pistol) is a Russian semi-automatic pistol. Under the project leadership of Nikolay Fyodorovich Makarov, it became the Soviet Union's standard military and police side arm from 1951 to 1991.
