Your character in Destiny has access to its very own vehicle dubbed as Sparrow. This hovercraft doesn’t contain any weapon, but can be used to reach objectives faster and even get out of firefights.

Furthermore, the Sparrow comes in a variety of different variants. Lastly, similar to your character, you can also upgrade your Sparrow.
