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!

Pico's Playtesting is a cassette tape in Wasteland 3.


The label reads "Pico's Playtesting" followed by a series of numbers, each gently scratched out.


"TEMP: Pico playtesting his human simulator with Tinker. She doesn't see the point and explains several much more efficient ways to kill humans. Pico is horrified.", You say this is a c-combat simulation?
Yes! I designed it to help us learn how to defend ourselves from humans. That's why I think you'd make an ideal tester-
How do I f-fight?
Oh! Well, it's really simple. You can choose to make a rush attack, a precision blast, or a sneaky strike... OR you can choose instead to just talk it out-
What about f-flamethrowers?
I-I'm sorry?
An efficient and effective w-weapon against area t-targets. Agonized s-screams of dying humans are a-also effective psychological weapons-
Oh! Oh, no! No, that's not in the game-!
That seems v-very inefficient. What about a-antipersonnel mines? Very effective against s-soft targets. Fragments mutilate rather than k-kill, inflicting c-crippling injuries-
Wow. That's... uh... really... um... Anyway, I think maybe I need to tweak this a bit more. Thanks for the... um... feedback.
