In Wasteland 3, the wastelands of post-apocalyptic Colorado are full of factions vying for control over the territory. The Rangers' standing with them is graded on a five step scale: Hated, Disliked, Neutral, Liked, and Loved. See Reputation for details.

List of factions

Friendly factions

  • The Patriarch's Marshals: Led by Sheriff Daisy, the Marshals enforce the Patriarch's laws in Colorado Springs and - when necessary - beyond. They're a paramilitary force, similar to police, but a little rougher around the edges.
  • The Gippers: A heavily-armed cult devoted to the "god-president," Ronald Reagan. Some may call them crazy, but since they produce and refine all the oil in Colorado, everybody's got to pretend they're not.
  • The Hundred Families: The leading citizens of Colorado Springs, descended from the survivalist families who founded the Patriarch's nation. Most are dedicated to rebuilding America as it was before the bombs.
  • The Wastelander Refugees: Desperate, hardscrabble people from the periphery of the Patriarch's nation. As gangs and other dangers encroach from outside, many refugees have fled to Colorado Springs and other fortified towns.
  • The Brygo Syndicate: Faran Brygo's criminal organization.
  • The Monster Army: Fifty years ago, the Monster Army ruled Colorado. Now they're old and fading, and all they have left is the Bizarre, a "free haven" of trade and eccentric delights.
  • Arapaho: Colorado's finest caravaneers.
  • Deth: The rogue Ranger team under Angela Deth.
  • Steeltown: A massive arcology to the south of the Patriarch's realm.
  • The Machine Commune: The community of robots at Denver Ruins.

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!
