The variant is GA00465-US and if I understand correctly the device approaches its EOL, with no way of installing custom ROMs to keep it up to date since it has a locked bootloader.
Anything else should I be aware of? Do I need a Verizon SIM for activation or updates? Does it come with any nonremovable bloatware?
I don't usually buy 2 year old models, but with the Pixel 3 costing less then my Note8 screen repair bill it will get the job done for a year or two.
Any help would be appreciated.

    In some cases you can actually unlock the bootloader of these phones. Try to boot it up without a SIM card and then look for the OEM unlock option. If you're lucky, it'll be there and you can unlock the phone
