To help you in your quest to get this weapon I’ve linked a good video above from YouTuber ColdBwoyy that highlights everything you need to know about getting this new high end.

What Perks does the Savage Wolverine have?

Like other named weapons in The Division 2, the Savage Wolverine features a unique talents specific to this weapon. This talent revolves around kill distance and buffing your damage:

  • Perfectly Close & Personal: Killing a target within 10m grants +50% weapon damage for 10s.

Unlike the new Chameleon the Savage Wolverine is actually worth the effort to acquire. The unique talent it posses is rather strong and can shred enemies when used to its full potential.
