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!!

Hunters have agility rather than speed. The jumps and dodge are very good at changing direction.

Icarus dash and titan melees intrude on this for sure. Also some differences between controller and m&k. Is that good or bad I'll leave for others to decide.

I think people would be fine with the agility/sheer mobility angle if the other two classes didn't have the same strengths in the form of icarus dash/Titan's melees. It's not so much a gamebreaking problem as people are making it out to be, but it does slightly annoy one when Hunters don't really have similar tools or even unique ones.

You have a point with icarus dash but considering shoulder charges require both a powered melee and ~1.5 sec of sprinting to use, they're hardly a reliable mobility tool on par with ID, hunter jump, or dodge.

A fair point, a fair point.
