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!

Recruits[1] are non-player characters who can join the player's Ranger party and face the wastelands together.

General rules[]

  • The player can recruit a total of 3 followers with a full-size Ranger squad, more if it is undermanned. The upper limit is 7 party members.
  • All recruits have a chance to go rogue (ignore orders in combat), lowered by the Leadership skill.
  • The player cannot modify the appearance of a recruit.
  • The player can take three recruits of their choice with them to California.
  • Dismissing companions in the Director's Cut will have them be unavailable until you are allowed access to Ranger Citadel's interior.
