Things involving bullets and psycho borg monsters happen very quickly. Stygee sees the trailer rock, the monster jump out, bullets spak spak spak into the pavement and the monster, Shrike shoot and dodge, shoot and dodge, all in the time it takes her to roll to a stop to let the "passenger" out of the seat. Just as the engine is revving back up to push forward, the borg goes down. She is ready for full acceleration at this very moment, with several tons of vehicle at her beck and call. Many options. What is one to do?

OUTSIDE OF A SUSPICIOUS SCONE FACTORY WITH DANGER WRITTEN ALL OVER IT
Parking Lot Detail (1 grid = approx. 1 meter)
The incapacitated borg lies twitching not 5m from Shrike. He is close enough to see little sparks amidst the metal parts and gooey looking fluids flowing from the interior. The smell is acrid, burnt oil with a bit of boiling coolant mixed in. It's not moving, it seems incapacitated, but it is by no means un-salvageable. With the thing still for a change, Shrike's magnified vision can take in some additional details: the thing is blue (that was obvious) but the blue parts looked like additional armor, the structure underneath is still metal, but it's anodized titanium (probably) in an orangey tangeriney color. The mangled head is all electronics and small servos, except for the very human like teeth and jaws, but those are also clearly metal. This thing is either a straight murder robot, or there is a brain in a jar nestled away inside all that armor. There is no apparent mechanism for eating, and with the way the head is destroyed, he can be very sure of that.
Shrike's ears pickup the shouts and other noises from the elf special forces types clambering up the elevator shaft, the doors and glazing on the first floor were blown off when whatever bomb detonated in the building. Looking that way, he sees several elves (almost certainly, even at this distance) dressed like the victims of the cyberpsycho, their bodies decorating the trailer.
INSIDE OF A SUSPICIOUS SCONE FACTORY WITH DANGER WRITTEN ALL OVER IT
Wraith's experience makes her constantly attuned to her environment. But sometimes she sees things that aren't there, like a mysterious set of stairs? <j/k>
Wraith's experience makes her constantly attuned to her environment. Down in this subterranean mystery land, there just isn't that much to be aware of. There's the hallway with its bare cold floor and walls. There's a door to another room with several doors, one from which Death Otter appeared. There's Bushwack (he's hard to miss), the mischievous Death Otter. There are elf types climbing up the elevator shaft to the world above. There is also, and mysteriously, a mysterious other way out at the end of the room with the doors: stairs to somewhere?
All in all though, at this moment, it seems relatively quiet "upstairs".
AROUND A DIFFERENT CORNER TO THE WEST OF A SUSPICIOUS SCONE FACTORY WITH DANGER WRITTEN ALL OVER IT
Quick as quick can be, it still takes Arthur several minutes to do all of the break down and changing costumes. He has no issues, but as he rolls around the corner he gets a sense of just how crazy things on the ground really are, things he couldn't see from his perch. There are elves coming from inside the office building! The office building looks like crap! Traffic is all sorts of weird as people are gawking at the scene.
What the frag are you going to do now?
