General Vargas is the ranger leader at the Ranger Citadel, and the first person you talk to in Wastleland 2.


Snake Vargas was a fun-loving ranger who often got himself involved in many bar-brawls and fights. He earned his nickname, Snake, for being a magnet for snakebites - and surviving them every time. He was part of the Ranger team along with Angela Deth, Thrasher and Hell Razor that invaded and destroyed Base Cochise, ending the robotic threat to the wasteland. After the destruction of the base, Vargas continued his career as a ranger, eventually becoming the Ranger General in charge of the Desert Rangers. He abandoned his nickname Snake sometime around the destruction of the Base Cochise and around the time of the last bar-brawl he participated in 2092. He started becoming increasingly withdrawn, spending more time in his office than in the field operations. The death of Ace in 2102, caused him to re-evaluate his priorities and he replaced Wade Woodson as the dispatcher. He walks using a cane due to his lame leg and because of that doesn't fight in the field anymore.


  • Vargas will give you the task of recovering Ace's repeater units and investigating his death.
  • He will turn hostile if you attempt to dig Ace's grave in the beginning.
  • He will be the radio contact of the team throughout the game, assigning them the main quests of the game.
  • He gives the members of your squad field promotions once you have enough experience, allowing you to level up.
