How to get Wendigo GL3 (Legendary Grenade Launcher) plus god roll guide in Destiny 2

Wendigo GL3 is back in Destiny 2, previously a ritual weapon, this is now available from Nightfalls as an exclusive reward this season and beyond. Today I am going to check out Wendigo GL3, look at the stats, the perks, the god rolls to chase for PVP and PVE, plus look at how to get Wendigo GL3 in Destiny 2.

How to get Wendigo GL3

To get Wendigo GL3 you’ll have to complete Nightfall Strikes when the weapon is the featured Nightfall weapon that particular week. At the time of making this guide it’s available right now, until reset next Tuesday, and it’ll go into the 6 week rotation of weapons available as Nightfall rewards. The best thing to do is run legend or master nightfalls and you’ll have a chance at the weapon dropping at the end of Nightfall strikes.

It’s not a guaranteed drop from the end of every nightfall strike, it’s rng based, meaning you may not get it on your first run, or even second. I had to do about 8 Nightfalls to get this weapon to drop for me, although I was running on Legend difficulty. It’s all down to luck, and hopefully you’ll get your version of WEndigo much quicker than I did. The key is to run nightfall strikes, beat the boss and you’ll have a chance for it to drop for you.
