As people have already said in this thread, destroying an enemy occupied vehicle counts as an extra kill in the post game stats, NOT the actual game stats.
Destroy a warthog with 3 passengers= 4 kills, destroy a warthog with just a driver= 2 kills. So total number of enemies killed + total number of enemy occupied vehicles destroyed= final kill score. Also, say you don't die at all in a slayer game, get 14 kills with one of those being an enemy that was in a vehicle that you blew up, your final score would be 15 kills, and you will actually get +1 on your perfection commendation for that.
Nice to get that cleared up. Thanks. --- "I prefer to call armour lock "an admission of failure" " - jimmytheballs Xbox Live Gamertag - Blue Idiot
I would have never thought a vehicle counts as a kill! (I just assumed it gave you the extra 10 points in the scoreboard).
I have wondered this too, because it seems like every other game I always had more kills in the "carnage report" than in the actual game scoreboard. --- IRON MAIDEN IS MY RELIGION! Gamertag: Demigod Elessar
In Reach, Big Team had bonus points for beat downs, assassinations, splatters, and head shots. This confused sooooo many people. --- "The most important thing is to never stop questioning." -Albert Einstein. Xbox Live: AlteraLateralus
