From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
Wyverns have two Warp Lance turrets mounted on their bodies. These fire cross-shaped Void blasts that split into five smaller projectiles after reaching a certain distance, and deal large amounts of damage.
By shooting the turrets, Wyverns are briefly staggered and their cores are exposed. This then grants players the opportunity to deal critical damage against Wyverns.
