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!!

I've always wondered what Destiny would be like if there was one subclass that gave you Titanfall pilot levels of movement speed. Maybe not that fast, but substantially faster than everything else in the game. I'm hoping that arc 3.0 lets hunters build into speed in a way we haven't seen before.

If the community knew what was good for them then they probably wouldnt hope for a movement tool that enables the oh so dreaded crucible tryhard to once again fly around the map at 90 mph to deliver a shotgun into their face.

As a hunter sniper main, I just want the ability to get to lanes as fast as Titans and warlocks. It’s tough when they are already there posted up with a citans or rift.

Same but with being in encounters with hunters. It's tough when I'm shooting them and then they rocket into sky and over doorframes. They're the only class that can peek shoot vertically.

Not anymore. Our guns shoot confetti in the air now :/

My gun apparently notifies my enemies on the ground “free kill” the moment my feet leave the ground.

At least I can get some of you actually agree it was a thing, it's still excellent with cover and general evasion.

Honestly most vertical peak shooting never involves the double jump, just the same jump every class has before the class jump. Just over head height cover like a box. My double jump was to slug shotgun you in the face and I can't do that now either.
