How effective is the Wendigo?

I have it and was reading up on it but it has me scratching my head. The blast radius bar is real small but if you pick up an orb of light the next shot has improved damage. How does that work during a boss encounter “effectively “? If you have your super can you still pick up orbs for it? Is it one orb for the next shot that needs to be fired only? When doing boss DPS a lot of times the fire team is huddled together. Do you fire a shot then run to the next orb to power up the next shot then fire again? On paper it sounds like a poor design. I’m willing to give the benefit of the doubt because some gear have poor perk descriptions. Need to get some input from those who actually use this gun quite a bit or at least have a firm understanding of it. I just don’t see angle here.

Also blinds (most) enemies and stops them from shooting you with a single shot which can come in clutch. **Yes you can still pick up orbs, after 6 orbs stop picking them up or you will waste them. **1 orb 1 shot **Nope just stack 6 and shoot. Ive done every boss in D2 and it is effective. When It's time to move around grab new orbs I still prefer it to most heavy weapons and I have them all (except Truth idc much for noob tubes)
