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!

This page covers Wasteland 3 armor. Unlike previous games, armor is generally broken down into three pieces: Chest armor, leg armor, and helmets, allowing for mixing and matching different items.

All armor pieces can be modified with armor mods.
