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!

Strength is the pure brute power of a Ranger. This does not mean the Ranger is knowledgeable or skilled in applying that brute force, or particularly smart about when to apply it, just that the Ranger has a lot of force to apply.
Strength is a natural skill for combat-focused bruisers.
A Ranger with high strength is able to hit hard, carry more gear, and take more damage. Strength determines bonus critical melee damage, starting constitution, constitution gain per level, carry weight, and ability to wear heavy armor without extra penalty. Two weapons (the Proton axe and Truth) have strength requirements. The sum of Strength, Speed, and Intelligence affects the number of action points.
