i'm on the opposite end of the spectrum... i usually get my 8 bounties for strikes and gunsmith done in the 3 required for the pinnacle while speedrunning. i can understand wanting to take your time though. i do however kill stuff that i don't "NEED" to if it suits me but mostly i'll be towing the line with a high damage special or heavy to get the strike over within 10 minutes.
Agreed. And, I really wouldn't mind seeing Bungie adding an A.I. team for a single player mode.
