Nope. "To War" from the same game (Destiny)

The question remains for me, in both instances, what is "it"?

In English composition class, we'd call this an example of an unclear referent.

The problem isn't with the line, but with what precedes the line. The line isn't set up properly either time.

If you tell me what "it" refers to, I'll write a better line to precede it.

Killing the Chief.

The second use of the phrase works a little better if “it” is believing he’s dead.

I won’t argue that the setup for either line is perfect; I sort of interpret the line as a translated Elite idiom/turn of phrase.
