As we know vehicle combat has been a part of Bungie for a long time, and I've always liked the way they took for the flow of the combat. I have some worries about vehicles (particularly enemy vehicles) in Destiny. From the Demo we saw a Fallen Devil Walker, this was clearly a boss as it had the skull next to its name. I'm worried this will diminish the scale of vehicle combat against the enemies we will face. For all we know, there will be one boss per area, and if a standard tank is a boss, they might not include more than one, I hope I'm wrong. Another thing is I'm hoping to seize enemy vehicles, from some of the mail sack readings, we can assume we can at least take the Fallen Pike, but what about the other vehicles? Surely there are more such as the Devil Walker for instance which I think would be great to use. I'm assuming we can't take boss vehicles as we were shown the Devil Walker was. Hijacking vehicles is just something I'd like though, not really something needed. Opinions? Ideas?
