Denver Ruins Walkthrough Wasteland 3

Denver Ruins is located to the in eastern Colorado, is an important zone related to the main storyline of Wasteland 3.

When you first approach Denver from west, you will meet, on the road, Liberty Buchanan, one of the main characters in Colorado.

Liberty Buchanan talk to her. There are no alternatives during the conversation, you have to be nice and make her let you pass. It is important that you do not allow the fight her.

If you fight Liberty Buchanan, it is highly likely that you will die. However you can try, there is always a minimal chance that you will win, which will lead you to one of the Wasteland 3 Secret Endings. If you really care about this ending, you can drive to Denver from the east side and stay away from the west driveway until you are ready for a really serious fight.

The Denver location consists of two areas, Denver Ruins and Machine Commune, both connected with each other by a storyline.

The storyline in Denver is pretty twisted and has many paths. I will try to outline what's going on beforehand, so that the game will be nice and enjoyable.

There are three basic forces within the Denver Ruins and Machine Commune locations.

The Gippers

They are crazy cult of worshipers of God-President Ronald Reagan. Generally they are friendly, although you have to take seriously what they say when talking to them. The Gippers are a faction with its own reputation. They are important because they are the only ones to supply oil.

And keeping oil supplies is one of the overarching goals in the game. Therefore, you should reject all solutions that will make it necessary to fight The Gippers.

The Machine Commune

A friendly community of robots and machines. They are so civilized and enlightened that they are begging to be on their side. But the open support of Machine Commune will cause open conflict with The Gippers, which, assuming we don't want to kill The Gippers, prevents us from fully supporting Machine Commune.

However, we do not have to openly conflict with them and we will try to maintain at least correct relations.

The Godfishers

Quite a hostile gang living in the southern areas of the Denver Ruins. You could ally with them against The Gippers, then they will help you in the fight against The Gippers. But just like before, we don't want conflict with Gippers, so all you have to do is exterminate The Godfishers at The Gippers' request.

Critical point

Your main task in Denver is to take over Valor Buchanan to make it possible and what will happen to him will be decided at the very end of the location's plot during the finale of the Reagan Reborn Main Mission.

You will then have three possible options:.

  • [1] Select The Gippers side and submit Reagan to Valor Buchanan's body.

    The perverse and not obvious in the game is the fact that the solution [1] in which we are in favor of The Gippers, will ultimately lead to an open conflict with them. Our task is to physically take over Valor Buchanan, and with this solution in Valor's body there is Reagan who does not want to leave Denver.

  • [2] Select the side of The Machine Commune faction and transfer Reagan to the Machine Intelligence Tower

    Solution [2] is interesting, Machine Commune will be happy, but we will have a fight and we will have to take out The Gippers, which we obviously don't want.

  • [3] Cheat both sides and transfer Reagan to the Ranger HQ

    The funny thing is that the only way to maintain balance is to trick both sides [3]. It is true that both of them will be dissatisfied, but afterwards you will be able to effectively blackmail The Gippers so that they keep sending oil and stabilize the situation with them at a satisfactory level. Most importantly, you won't have to kill them all. When it comes to Machine Commune, they will not be happy at first, but after talking to them you will manage to stabilize the situation with them, also without violence.

(The full description of the consequences can be found in the further parts of the description, for now it is enough.)

Well then, here's what we're going to do in Denver:

  • Before we go to the end of the main missions, we will try to do the side missions.
  • We will be nice to The Gippers and pretend to the end that we are implementing their plan.
  • We won't ally with The Godfishers, we'll kill them all.
  • We'll be nice to the robots in Machine Commune, but lie to them that we're following their plan.
  • We will keep the oil supplies to Colorado
  • We are not killing anybody from the Gippers or Machine Commune
  • We will keep the reputation with The Gippers on a satisfactory level.
  • We'll capture Valor Buchanan for the main mission.
  • The Patriarch will be pleased.

So here we go ...

The Zealot The Zealot Mission

Valor Buchanan, the Patriarch's younger son, has allied himself with the Gippers in Denver. The Reagan fanatics have cut off the oil supply for Colorado Springs, and the Patriarch wants both his son and the oil back.
