Team Baker is one of the main Desert Rangers teams operating in the wasteland. In 2102, their main assignment is trying to find a way through the radiation wall that cut off Las Vegas from the rest of Arizona. Team Echo can intercept transmissions to the Citadel describing their activities, including a run-in with Esteban Negro at Moore, a wasteland raider who wiped out entire Ranger patrols on his own.
- 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."
