Las Vegas is a major location in Wasteland.

Background[edit]

Vegas is the city of Las Vegas. No one is quite sure how the Soviet missiles managed to miss the city, but most folks figure it was because the “house” was betting against a missile landing – and no one wins against the house. There was an international rumor about some Russian general’s markers being torn up after the attack, but that has yet to be confirmed.

Undaunted by its brush with perdition, Vegas is still open for business and does very well for itself. The city is large enough to avoid conquest, and many elements of the desert rabble have even found gainful employment as enforcers or casino employees. Despite the relative success of the city, however, horrors descending from the north are taking up residence in the city sewers, with another group of robots spearheading the invasion into the city proper. The jewel of the Desert became a battlezone in 2087, as the inhabitants put up a desperate fight to keep their city - and save their own lives.[1] A splinter group of the Servants of the Mushroom Cloud broke away from the main cult, fleeing eastwards into the Canyon of Titan, where they set up residence in an abandoned missile base.[2]

The destruction of Base Cochise brought back peace and quiet, allowing it to prosper. However, the city wasn't fortunate enough to avoid being hit by radioactive clouds. By 2102, it is cut off from Arizona by an impenetrable wall of radiation, leading everyone to assume it perished. However, it seems that the house won again, as radio transmissions indicate it still alive and well.[3]

Overview[edit]

Las Vegas is large city that the player will explore approximately mid-game (after Needles) as it requires rifle-level firepower. It is filled with abandoned buildings (very few of which contain stashes of loot) and nasty robots, including the infamous Scorpitron. It is in Las Vegas that the player finally encounters Faran Brygo, a plot element obviously derived from author Brian Fargo's name.

In the golf course is a stash of RPG-7s that can be retrieved by using a Shovel. This stash also contains a Sonic Key.

  3. Snake Vargas: "For a while we thought it was completely gone, consumed by the radiation, but recently we've been hearing things that make us think that the clouds only cut it off from us. A wide open town back in the day. Gambling, mobsters, cultists, robots in the sewers. Thank god what happened in Vegas stayed in Vegas, otherwise we'd all be a lot worse off."
