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!

Wasteland 2[]

Speed is more than just how fast a ranger can run. It is also their reflexes and reaction time, which affects their initiative in battle and their quickness in dodging in response to a threat. The higher a Ranger's speed, the sooner they can act. It is one of the more important combat attributes and affects Combat speed, Combat initiative, and the Chance to Evade. Action points are also affected by the sum of Strength, Speed, and Intelligence.
