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!

Team Able is one of the main Desert Rangers teams operating in the wasteland. In 2102, their main assignment, alongside Team Charlie, is preventing a range war from becoming straight-up genocide.[1] Team Echo can intercept a transmission reporting that the Ranger team hit a group of raiders.

Behind the scenes[]

Team Able, at one point, makes a comical reference to the A-team, when Cpt. Peppard notes that he "Loves it when a plan comes together".

The most obvious reference to "The A-Team" are the in game character names, which resemble the actual actors names of the A - Team characters.

  • George Peppard - Hannibal (in game Captain Peppard)
  • Dirk Benedict - Face (in game Ranger Benedict)
  • Dwight Schultz - Murdoc (in game Ranger Schultz)
  • Laurence Tureaud (pseudonym Mr. T) - B.A. Baracus (in game Ranger Tureaud)


  1. Vargas: "Yeah, I know. You've hardly found your feet with us, and here I am sendin' you on a *mission* that already got one Ranger killed. Well, I wish I had another option, but the Desert Rangers are spread a little thin right now. Ranger Teams Able and Charlie are out west tryin' to stop a range war out there from becomin' straight up genocide, and Team Baker is up north lookin' for a way through the radiation that's cut us off from Vegas. I'm afraid the next generation is going to have to lead the charge on this one."
