How to get Wendigo GL3 in Destiny 2

Wendigo GL3 is a Nightfall weapon. It’s a possible, but not guaranteed, drop at the end of Warden of Nothing Nightfall Strike.

The only opportunity to grow Wendigo will depend on the calendar. A different attack like Nightfall appears every week, so you’ll have to wait for Warden of Nothing to appear in the rotation. Once he does, it will be your job to execute and repeat the attack until you get your Wendigo.

Whether the weapon falls is a matter of luck, but you have the ability to tip the balance in your favor. Increasing the difficulty also increases the chance of the Nightfall weapon dropping, since Strange on the lowest difficulty for Common at the top.

You can also equip the Ghost Prosperity (Vanguard) mod. This gives playlist attacks and Nightfalls a chance to drop an additional piece of legendary gear upon completion. This has never been confirmed to include Nightfall weapons, but anecdotally it seems to have an effect.

The Season of the Depths is here along with the Into the Depths quest. You can also know how to go fishing! Don’t forget to keep an eye on the Lost Sector and King’s Fall challenge rotation schedule!

Wendigo GL3 God Roll Recommendation in Destiny 2

Wendigo GL3 is a monster that deals damage. It is exceptionally well suited for taking out champions and DPSing bosses.

The version, or ‘god roll’ of Wendigo GL3 is all about damage. He focuses on hitting hard, above all else.

Here’s our recommended Wendigo GL3 divine roll in Destiny 2:

  • hard throw
  • Spike grenades
  • Automatic loading case
  • explosive light
  • Impressive recovery

Hard Launch provides a large bonus to speed, which directly translates into impact damage for anything hit by the grenade. This comes at the expense of some stability and a smaller blast radius, but you’ll primarily be shooting at larger, stationary targets, so it’s a worthwhile trade-off.

Spike Grenades are another direct impact damage buff and increase stability by the same amount that Strong Throw decreased. It’s a perfect combination of advantages to get maximum damage with minimum drawback.

The auto-loading holster is the thoughtful keeper’s advantage. Reload your weapon after being stowed for 2.5 seconds. The idea is simple: unload all your grenades, switch to another weapon to continue dealing damage, and then use your recharged Wendigo again for another massive burst of damage.

Explosive Light is amazing, if you plan for it. Picking up a power orb increases the damage of the next shot you fire. You can collect up to six of them and have a magazine full of upgraded grenades to fire. Used in combination with supers and armor mods that regularly create Orbs of Power, this is one of Destiny 2’s best perks.

Impressive Recovery is one of three selectable origin traits. Neither option is exceptional, but Stunning Recovery is great in certain situations. With it, stunning a champion will partially refill your magazine, increase recovery, and trigger health regeneration. It’s a very situational situation, but fighting Champions is exactly the type of situation where it’s good to have an advantage.

As usual, once you have your preferred roll, be sure to upgrade it to Masterwork to give it a stat boost, the ability to spawn orbs on multiple kills, and add the option for a kill tracker.
