How to Get the Wendigo-GL3 Pinnacle Weapon in Destiny 2

Destiny 2 Wendigo-GL3 Pinnacle Weapon

Destiny 2’s Season of Opulence has officially started, so it’s time to hunt down three new Pinnacle Weapons. Considered some of the best guns in their archetypes, Pinnacle Weapons require the player to complete a series of objectives tied to a quest called A Gift For The Worthy during Season of the Opulence. This quest is account wide and, so any of your Guardians can contribute to it.

To unlock the Wendigo you will need to complete the following tasks:

  • 1,500 Grenade Launcher Final Blows
  • 500 Grenade Launcher Multi-Kills
  • Gain Points for Kills in Strikes

You will need to do your best not to die, as it will affect your score’s progress so don’t be reckless when using this weapon. This is a fairly simple quest, since it only requires you to kill a lot of enemies over the course of the season. Just focus on landing multi-kills and make sure to use the Fighting Lion since it takes Special Ammo!

Just like the past two Vanguard Pinnacle Weapons, the Wendigo-GL3 is also about explosions. Its unique perk is called “Explosive Light,” which increases the grenade launcher’s blast radius and damage when picking up an Orb of Light. Every Orb of Light will store a single charge and the Wendigo-GL3 has a maximum capacity of 6 Explosive Light grenades.

What truly separates it from other grenade launchers is the ability to use “Blinding Grenades.” When these explode it will disorient enemies, denying them the use of their abilities. This is an especially powerful tool, especially against bosses or enemies that can quickly move around the map. How this affects the damage numbers is still unknown, this is the first legendary weapon that allows us to blind our targets.

It may take some time, so don’t panic about getting it right away.
