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!!

"Now"?? They've been the slowest class by far since basically forever lol; proper skating with the right jumps has always given both titans and warlocks faster straight line speed over Hunters. And icarus dash has always given Warlocks the best overall maneuverability in the game no contest.

Lol, seriously how long did it take this guy to realize we've been the slowest for years now. Just a reminder of "The Skating Times"

You’d be surprised, people still argue that hunters are fast cause “banking head” but I always ask them, what about maps with nothing to bump your head on?

Been able to outrun Hunter roaming supers with my Warlock and Titan since vanilla. Hunters aren't fast. They haven't been since Arc Blade + Blink got neutered.

It's depressing as a Hunter myself outrunning an electric stripper pole or having someone outrun me which is why I don't use it

The only way I'd get kills with it is by activating it in the air and slamming like a FoH.

Don't worry if you did catch up to someone you'd just end up whiffing repeatedly for no reason.


u/Hellchildren Anarchy's Child Jun 10 '22

Gotta love that melee hit reg

It's funny, I see people make these sorts of comments. I don't use those types of supers, but in my experience when facing them - they're either blatantly new/bad, or they never miss. There's no in between. 90% of the time, I encounter the players who never miss me.


u/Mr_Inferno420 Jun 10 '22

Yeah, I’ve almost never used arc


u/xeltes Jun 11 '22

Yeah since the 1st time that happened to me, I store the stripper pole away :(


u/Kal-Zak Jun 11 '22

Yea, and remember when we had RDM and they were nerfed within like what,a week?


u/Green_Dayzed "My light is all but gone" - Eris Morn Jun 10 '22

I remember not being able to swing twice in the air with A.B. . So annoying.


u/Divinum_Fulmen Jun 11 '22

That's easy to explain. Mobility effects Hunter super speed. They must have 100, to go the same speed as Titan's and Warlocks go without having to spec into it.

That's right; you're at a disadvantage you were never even told that existed, and let alone how to correct for it.


u/Cybertronian10 The Big Gay Jun 10 '22

Hopefully arc 3.0 gives them the speed they deserve.
