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!

Swim is a skill in Wasteland.

Overview[]

The desert sands don’t blanket the entire earth. This will come in hand in those spots where you have to swim. Essential in the wastes of Florida.

Wasteland[]

  1. One mandatory use is in the Temple of Blood during the Needles quest, to get to the inner sanctum. You must swim across the surrounding moat, or (more likely) take drowning damage.
  2. The other mandatory use is to cross the sewage stream in the sewers under Las Vegas.
  3. Two other areas bear mention. One is the swimming pool in the Stage Coach Inn in Quartz, and the other is what appears to be the Colorado River on the main map. Note that the river will sweep you south.
