The Mission Objective Eliminate the tank in Destiny: The Taken King.

“The Cabal tank is a trheat to any Guardians attempting to transmat to the Dreadnaught. Destroy it.”

“Eliminate the tank” is an objective in the mission The Dreadnaught in Destiny: The Taken King


Turn your attention toward the Skyburner Ship. A Goliath Tank has emerged from it. This tank is after you and your patrol beacon. You must defeat the Tank to secure the landing zone and create a beach head on the Dreadnaught.

You can manage most of the fight from nearby the Patrol Beacon. This gives you a good view of the Goliath and makes it easy to hit its vulnerable thrusters. This does require a Sniper Rifle and a lot of ammo to pull off. Ghost will also call in a drop from your ship with Heavy ammo crates. This makes it easier for you to use the high power of your machine gun or rocket launcher to destroy the Tank and the surrounding enemies.

Using Heavy weapons will put you a lot closer to the Goliath tank. This makes a fight a bit harder because of the additional Cabal around the area. Not to mention whatever Hive are on the attack.

Either way, slowly circle the Tank. Attack each of its Thrusters with your best weapons. Keep close to cover to avoid the incoming turret blasts and the main cannon. Close to the end you will encounter an Orge.
