Mangler is an AT Weapon in Wasteland.

Background[edit | edit source]

A heavily modified FIM-92 Stinger, the Mangler is a low grade explosive weapon improvised by post-holocaust survivors. The warhead has been manufactured after the war and so it remains one of the least damaging weapons in the wastelands. Later improvements in technology allowed it to be significantly improve and become much, much more dangerous.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The Mangler is best treated as an alternative to a grenade, useful at longer rangers for characters with AT Weapon skills and no other choice for weapons. It can be used to defeat doors and other obstacles in lieu of other explosives, however.
