Wasteland 3 Ghost Town Massacre Site Abandoned Oil Well Honey Badger

I guess it’s thematic to include all three of these Wasteland 3 locations in the same guide. After all, when you have an Abandoned Oil Well, a Ghost Town, and a Massacre Site, things can be very spooky, right?

Note: For more locations or quests, you can head back to our campaign walkthrough main page. Alternatively, you can check our Wasteland 3 guides and features hub.

Wasteland 3: The “spooky” locations

Ghost Town

Despite the name, Wasteland 3‘s Ghost Town isn’t full of malevolent spirits. It’s actually just a ruined village.

You’ll find this directly south of Union Station. Keep in mind that “time is of the essence” — you need to reach the zone quickly or you’ll miss out on the sidequest.

The Hie sisters are fighting a gang of mercenaries. Eliminate the hostiles and talk to them. It looks like they have a debt to pay to Moss Cogan of the Hundred Families, and you can help or abandon them.

Don’t forget to open the toaster (Toaster Repair 6) which has a Tarjan token.

Head to the back area of the Ghost Town to find Cogan. You can pay off the sisters’ debt — and Cogan asks for $10,000!

That’s a bit much, so you can lower it (Kiss Ass 6 and $5,000 dollars). You can also use Kiss Ass 7 to have the Hie sisters pay in installments. Alternatively, be “loved” by the Hundred Families faction (which I wasn’t able to do during my Wasteland 3 playthrough).

That’s it. The Hie sisters won’t really hand over anything. At the very least, you can pick up the loot from other containers nearby.

Abandoned Oil Well

The Abandoned Oil Well is directly south of the Ghost Town, and it might be the scariest location in Wasteland 3.

Once you enter the zone, you’ll notice a bunch of “juvvies” surrounding an odd-looking Tesla coil. They don’t speak to you, but they’ll move their heads to follow you around… weird.

There’s barely anything here and you’ll probably want to leave. But, try to attack one of them.

The Tesla coil will emit a strange gas knocking everyone out.

When you wake up, everyone’s gone. You’re left with an Exoskeleton Helmet and the Purist Patty creepy doll.

Massacre Site

There’s another odd location in Wasteland 3 called the Massacre Site. It’s south of the Abandoned Oil Well.

It’s odd because this place is littered with buried items (like the PDW-01 SMG) and lots of corpses. Rangers, marshals, you name it — a lot of people died here.

But, there’s nobody around except… a honey badger. You can tame it if you have Animal Whisperer 10.

Bring the Honey Badger to battle and you’ll realize why it has a high requirement — it hits and crits like a truck. By then, you’ll realize that it probably killed everyone in the Massacre Site.
