A Gift For The Worthy Wendigo 1024x576 - How to Get the Wendigo GL3 Vanguard Pinnacle Weapon in Destiny 2


A new pinnacle weapon is available to chase after in Vanguard Strikes in Season of Opulence. In Season of the Drifter, guardians were grinding to get the Oxygen SR3 scout rifle, which is a great PvE weapon.

Zavala has been given a unique weapon, and since he never leaves the Tower, he wants to give it to someone who he knows will value it. Once you load into the Tower, head over to Zavala and pick up the A Gift For The Worthy quest step.

The requirements for completing A Gift For The Worthy are as follows:

  • 1500 Final Blows
  • 500 Multikills
  • Points Earned

Players will need to use Grenade Launchers for final blows and multi-kills in the Vanguard Strike playlist. It’s important to note that death impedes progress and that final blows grant the most progress.

Wendigo GL3 is an adaptive Grenade Launcher with the unique perk Explosive Light. Picking up Orbs of Light increases the next grenade’s blast radius and damage. The Wendigo also comes with the Blinding Grenades magazine option. This allows you to blind enemies temporarily.

The Grenade Launcher you want to use while pursuing the Wendigo is the exotic Fighting Lion, as it fits in the energy weapon slot and uses primary ammo which can be abundant.

Once you’ve earned the Wendigo, you will have a formidable weapon that will be able to blind Fallen Captains and other annoying enemies who try to dodge your every attack. I don’t see the Wendigo used in PvP that often, but it might be just the weapon to use in the Menagerie to help curb the onslaught of enemies.
