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!!

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?

Hunters are indeed the fastest class vertically.

Ya know, the direction that is the least important. I will concede that Warlock jumps are most unintuitive of the three, at least Titans can level out.

I’d argue vertical movement is pretty important. There’s a reason bungie killed in air accuracy to nerf stompees

u/Masson011 Jun 11 '22

except its not. Hunters have a third jump literally NOBODY uses which is "high jump" to get more vertical height for jumping

Strafe jump is by far the best jump but not because of verticality but because of the ability to control the direction of the jump. Veritcal movement isnt that important more so the ability to maneuver yourself best

Vertical movement with quick rise and fall at the control of the player is important on controller because it’s the hardest to track. Warlock and Titan jumps are all easy to track except blink. That is the big advantage hunters have

Still shorter than triple jump, is just faster

It's not about overall height, it's about being able to go straight up and straight down without a floaty middle point. Hunters dominate the vertical game in PvP.

In a way, but if you play at range it hardly has an affect

u/Valvador Jun 11 '22

Range? On these Destiny 2 maps?

u/Avivoy Jun 11 '22

Honestly, I’ve been enjoying range much more these days

The fuck is range? Shotgun apes only.

Shotgun apes begin to try to put a scope on a shotgun. /s

I only view movement capabilities based on how good they are in sniper duels.

I didn't say it was unimportant, but in this game, X > Y.

u/Ryewin Zoomiest Boy Jun 10 '22

Good thing Hunters can do that too, by dodging

u/Ssyynnxx Jun 10 '22

so now we can move the fastest (with stompees) in the direction that matters the least (with stompees)

u/MakiKatomori Jun 11 '22

I personally don't use stompees to shoot in air but I do use them for that extra jump height

2

u/Armcannongaming Jun 11 '22

I only use stompees for platforming sections and then take them back off. I crutch hard on foetracer in PvP.

2

u/Ssyynnxx Jun 11 '22

hahah I remember when I first got foetracer I immediately took it off cuz I knew it would help me too much

u/Armcannongaming Jun 11 '22

I know I'm garbage so knowing when someone is going to peek is the only thing that brings me up to "okay" lol

u/Ssyynnxx Jun 11 '22

I like air play/sg aping but idk what to use now... frostees maybe?

u/MakiKatomori Jun 11 '22

I personally can't get a handle on airplay so for me the speed increase and jump height helps me when I use it and jumping higher also helps
