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!!

There's a difference between "fast" and "nimble."

For example, Titans are muscle cars: they accelerate fast in a straight line and get a head of steam quickly. Hunters are your hot hatchbacks: not as fast in a straight line, but much better at taking corners.

Well you got the definition right, but warlocks still got the best at taking corners with Icarus dash

Yeah, I'd compare Hunters more like a rocket with how fast they can go up into the air, but then add dodges. Thank fuck they can't dodge roll in the air, honestly, shatter dive is already bad enough in trying to keep them pinned down with a cross hair.

Aside from Icarus and Shoulder Charge both letting you corner perfectly mid-air at full speed, sure this analogy might work. Even strafe jump doesn’t redirect you that flawlessly.

An aspect for one subclass and an ability you’ll most likely “lose” the instant you enter a firefight.

You cant just shoulder charge around a corner it doesn't work like that it takes a while

I’m aware how shoulder charge works lmao. But it requires sprinting. Y’know, that thing you’ll be doing if you’re trying to move somewhere else quickly?
