"The idea of the Raid carrier is to give players a solid starting point for using combat vehicles and battlefield teamwork. It's the first and simplest vehicle you can get, and alone against stronger vehicles and beasts you're hopeless. Riders have to work together, playing support roles and making tactical moves to knock out enemies." - Kee Zhang, Producer of BGO

Raid vehicles and beasts are high speed, lightly armored carriers. Their speed makes them useful in maneuvering around the enemy, attacking from blind-spots and badgering long-range enemies by closing on targets quickly. Although a few good hits from an Assault carrier can spell disaster for a Raider, they have an attack bonus against players on foot and NPCs. As such, they work well playing cleanup, finishing off players after their mounts have been destroyed by more powerfully equipped teammates.
