Wasteland 3 Endings
- This ending is just hilarious. It pretty much gives you an ending based on your curiosity about tinkering stuff.
- Upon reaching Union Station and finding the Morningstar, if you keep fixing it, it'll eventually explode, which results in the end of your journey in the game.
- Before you take on the task of "taking" out Liberty Buchanan, head to the Patriarch's Palace and kill The Patriarch. Well, if you think killing him will solve your problems, it damn won't fix any of it.
Killing the Patriarch will result in the fall of Colorado Springs and Liberty's gang will begin to overrun the area. Destruction and chaos follow them, and the people of Colorado will hate you for what you've done.
- Once you've confronted Liberty Buchanan, select the option of 10 Kiss Ass, which is to convince her that the Rangers' Team November could become a part of her army.
- She will, however, only agree if you don't have Lucia, Vic, or Ironclad in your party.
With Team November joining forces with Liberty's troops, they are able to fight through The Patriarch's forces. Liberty captures her father and places him in a cage and brings him with her wherever and whenever she's out for a parade.
- Once you've confronted Liberty Buchanan, select the option of 10 Hard Ass where you'll push her to surrender immediately. Or, you can also choose 10 Nerd Stuff first to sabotage her mechs before fighting her.
- If you chose to fight her, arrest her or kill her, then return to the world map.
- Select the option of siding with The Patriarch and then finish the last mission of the game.
Thanks to your help, Colorado remains safe and maintains order. From here, you can choose to stay in Colorado or return to Arizona, whichever choice you make, The Patriarch still keeps his promise by sending supplies over to the Desert Rangers as much as he can. Apart from that, you are also given a choice on dealing with Angela Deth and her team, which is to either execute them or ban them from Colorado.
- You must rescue Ironclad Cordite and complete his mission which is to unite the gangs in Yuma County.
- Once you confront Liberty Buchanan, select the 10 Hard Ass option to push her to surrender immediately.
- If you choose to fight her, make sure to select 10 Nerdy Stuff to sabotage her mechs, then after defeating her, it's up to you to kill or arrest her.
- When you return to the world map, side with Angela Deth and complete the last Missions of the game.
Since you've sided with Angela Deth, you'll be given a couple of options on how to deal with The Patriarch; hold a trial for him, execute him, ban him, or throw him to the mob. Angela Deth will then also ask you to stay in Colorado or to return back to Arizona. Make sure to choose the option to remain in Colorado in order to save the Desert Rangers by calling them out and asking them to travel to Colorado. If you go back to Arizona, you're basically returning empty-handed and the Desert Rangers won't have any supplies.
