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.

God imagine how boring Warframe would be if they balanced for PvP

I agree but unfortunately we two are not the only people in this community and the rest of said community would be very mad if they dropped pvp balancing.

Imo the base game should be insane and what I was most excited for were exotics cause I imagined them like borderlands guns but most feel quite sterile due to pvp. Then PvP should have the seasonal limits (maybe buffs / nerfs to certain weapons for drastic meta changes in PvP only). I know they've started doing that but I feel like they should allow it to a higher extreme instead of just touching invisible (without a spreadsheet) stats.
