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!

Plastic explosive is a Demolitions skill weapon in Wasteland.

Background[]

A plastic explosive is a high explosive material that is soft and can be molded by hand. This allows the user to fit it into cracks and concentrate it directly on structural weak points. Common modern plastic explosives include Semtex and C-4.

Characteristics[]

Plastic explosives in Wasteland are used like TNT, to blast open doors and rubble to allow passage. Plastic explosives work in places that TNT won't, like on the crystalline wall in the vault on the second level of the Sleeper Base. It is noteworthy that Sabot Rockets, LAW Rockets and RPG-7s can also be used in places where TNT is not effective; however, Plastic explosives are far cheaper.

When used in combat, plastic explosives function like chunks of TNT or grenades, but are more effective than either.
