Wasteland Wiki

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!

Description[]

At any time a Ranger's performance can be influenced by a variety of Status effects,[1][2] which either act as buffs or debuffs: in other words, they give an increase or decrease to specific attributes or skills, or sometimes cause a Ranger to lose CON over time.
