The Interceptor is a Cabal single-seat hovercraft designed for Psions.

Gameplay[edit]

The Cabal Interceptor is equipped with a pair of Solar cannons that fire large explosive shells, causing splash-damage. It is able to use intermittent boost that provides a one-second burst of speed every several seconds. While in boost, the cannons fold in and cannot be used.[1] The Interceptor is significantly slower than the Sparrow or Pike, but its boost can significantly accelerate it, and it is able to maneuver easily around larger vehicles such as a Goliath Tank. It is very durable and can take much punishment before exploding.

Most of the time, the interceptor's rate of fire and boost speed are limited. However, in certain missions, such as Road Rage, it has an increased rate of fire and unlimited boost speed.

Availability[edit]

Trivia[edit]

  • Based on the fact Guardians can use these vehicles easily, and that the seats are too small for ordinary Cabal soldiers like Legionaries, it was assumed that Psions piloted them exclusively. This theory was confirmed in the Destiny 2 gameplay premiere.
  • No Cabal units were seen using Interceptors until the reveal of Destiny 2, where a glimpse of an Interceptor was observed being piloted by a Psion.
