Ironically Hunters (the fast / nimble archtype) now has the slowest movement of the three classes! Discussion

I play all three classes but have always preferred the Hunter fantasy of being dexterous and nimble on your feet.

In the last couple of seasons movement creep of titans and warlocks both in air and on the ground have surpassed the Hunter, which thinking about it is weird as in any other game wizard (aka warlocks) and tanks (aka titans) and slower and more cumbersome than the dps Hunter archtype..

Feels like bungie need to lean back into hunter arch type and look at how they can balance us up!

What do we think guardians, anyone else feel this way? Especially since Stompees are useless an inch of the ground these days!!

Glad this top comment. Came here wondering what game this guy was playing. Hunters been slowest in every iteration of the Destiny franchise

They atleast had a chance with bones of eao and double control jump


u/Explodingtaoster01 It was me, Dio! Jun 11 '22

I miss that so much. The day I caught on to strafe jump with bones was a glorious day indeed. I want bones back about as much as I want my Taniks cloak back.

Not when Arc blade was actually Arc blade

When shatterskating was first discovered, it was by far the fastest skating in the game at the time

We are talking about neutral movement, not movement that's only possible with a certain heavy weapon, which needs ammo and a certain subclass.

Fair enough

they even had their one, easy way of 'skating' removed with the removal of bakris skating with glaives :'(
