The Wendigo is a monstrous beast that inhabits The Cankerwood of Xylourgos.


The Wendigo will begin the fight by shooting flames at the character. After some time, it will leap onto the ceiling and dart around, dropping icy stalactites around the arena. It will periodically perch on a ledge and expose its belly. Shooting the belly will cause the Wendigo to fall to the ground.

While on the ground, the Wendigo will charge at the character. If its antlers hit a fallen stalactite, it will stagger and expose its belly again for several seconds.


  • Wendigo has an increased chance of dropping the legendary Stauros' Burn assault rifle.


  • Wendigo refers to the mythological man-eating creature of the same name.
