Here are all three Pinnacle weapons and their perks

Bungie

On its homepage for Destiny’s new season, Bungie revealed three powerful new weapons coming in Destiny 2: Season of Opulence.

The PvP Pinnacle weapon this season is Revoker, a Legendary sniper rifle. Its perk is Reversal of Fortune, and any missed shots return ammo to the magazine after a short wait. Revoker can only generate one missed bullet at a time, so spray-and-pray still won’t work with this sniper. Bungie also clarified that the gun has a low zoom scope — preferable for most players in Destiny’s PvP combat.

Earning Recoker will work a bit differently this season. Instead of reaching Fabled, players need to earn 3500 Glory points in the Crucible’s competitive playlist. Losing Glory won’t detract from the quest’s progress.

The Vanguard Pinnacle weapon this season is Wendigo GL3, a Legendary heavy grenade launcher with the Exploding Light perk. When its Guardian picks up an Orb of Light, Wendigo GL3’s blast radius and damage increases. The Wendigo also comes with Blinding Grenades, which suppress enemies and prevent them from using abilities. Players can empower six grenades at a time by picking up six orbs.

The quest to earn the Vanguard Pinnacle weapon changes every season, and Bungie hasn’t revealed this one yet.

The Gambit Pinnacle weapon this season is Hush, a Legendary bow. Hush’s perk is Archer’s Gambit, where hitting a precision shot without aiming down sights increases the draw-speed. Bungie still hasn’t shown a video on how fast players can fire Hush, but the studio claims it’s significantly better than the Archer’s Tempo perk, which increase fire rate after a headshot.

We don’t know what the Gambit quest looks like this season.

Pinnacle weapons are powerful Legendary rewards that players work toward over the course of a season. They have perks unique to them, making them a half step between an Exotic and a traditional Legendary weapon. The goal is for each weapon to excel in their given activity (Strikes, Gambit, PvP), but most Pinnacles are useful for other activities as well.

All of these weapons are free for all players and will become available on June 4, when Bungie launches Destiny 2’s Season of Opulence.

Update 5/31: Bungie offered more details on the Pinnacle weapons in this week’s blog post; we’ve updated the weapon descriptions with the new information. We’ve also added a gallery below with a better look at each weapon.
