  • Zavala: Guardian. You got a tough road ahead. So I'm sending in Holliday with something ...special.
  • Cayde-6: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa -- how special are we talking here?
  • Zavala: Just keep moving. Storm the facility and board that Cabal Carrier. No matter the cost -- we MUST get to the Almighty.
  • Cayde-6: So, Zavala, I gotta ask you something. When you told our Guardian friend here, and I quote, "I need Cayde," did you by any chance happen to maybe... cry?
  • Zavala: Ahem. Holliday, What's your status?
  • Cayde-6: Let the record show: no denial.
  • Holliday: Still a couple clicks out, Commander. This girl's heavy!
  • Holliday: Say hello to the "Drake". *Guardian recieves a Tank*
  • Ghost: You got us a TANK?!"
  • Cayde-6: You got them a TANK? How come I never got a tank?
  • Holliday: You know you'd just break it.
  • Holliday: Guardian: holler my way if you need another one of these armored beauties. Plenty more where that came from.
  • Cayde-6: Oh so I get nothing, and they get as many as they want. I see how it is.
  • Ghost: Don't think we're going to be able to shoot our way through that door. The override must be nearby.
  • Holliday: Head's up! That carrier's spinning up its engines. You might want to pick up the pace!
  • Zavala: Thumos is on that carrier. He has what you need to infiltrate the Almighty. MOVE!
  • Ghost: Of course the Red Legion have tanks too.
  • Ghost: Well. They've retracted the bridge. We're not going to be able to cross that gap.
  • Cayde-6: Oh, your super tank can't fly? Oh...
  • Ghost: That should give us a way across.
  • Cayde-6: So, if it wasn't to give me a tank -- why did you send our favorite Guardian to find me?
  • Zavala: I... find your high-risk, high-reward combat maneuvers to be effective and ...inspirational.
  • Cayde-6: Well yeah, but with a tank they could be a million times MORE inspirational!
  • We're almost out of the tunnels and coming up on the carrier
  • Zavala: Good. The only thing standing between you and the Almighty is Thumos, the Unbroken. He's a Blood Guard. One of Ghaul's "chosen." The Red Legion will die for him. Why don't you help them with that?
  • Ghost: They're shielding the carrier! Wait -- see those generators? We need to take them out if we're going to board that carrier.
    • Upon destroying a generator* Ghost: One generator down.
    • Upon destroying both generators* Ghost: Shield's down, but the ship's about toaunch without us!
  • Zavala: Keep that carrier on the ground!
  • Cayde-6: Couple missiles up its taillpipe ought to do the job.
    • Upon shooting the ship* Ghost: The carrier is grounded. Now let's find Thumos.
  • Zavala: Good work, Guardian. And Cayde... after this is over, I'll talk to Holliday about your tank.
  • Cayde-6: Aw... I missed you too, buddy.
