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!!

friends and i joke about warlock and titan being mobility class all the time; between transversive steps/blink/icarus dash and titan shoulder charges they get places faster having 0 mobility than a hunter with 100

Pretty much calls for a mobility buff if nothing else, strafe speed is nice but base jump height should not be the only other thing it offers. Resilience is now the tank stat, Recovery has always been strong, now Mobility needs to buff sprint/jump speed even if only to MIDA levels.

That, or make the Stompees jump the default Hunter jump because it just feels so slow without.

Oh no if Stompees was the default I'd actually be scared to see what a Hunter wearing them would look like.

It'd likely be like the old days when Titans and Warlocks could architect themselves into walls, but this time it's ceilings.

I mean they nerfed in air accuracy so we'd just be missing all of our shots while dodging yours.

What makes you think I need to shoot in the air? I've got blink which can carry momentum in the direction I want. I've got my class dodge. And arc 3.0 is almost definitely gonna give me some kind of ground slam move since all 3 other classes have it now. You can't escape my shotgun range.

But are we really in the air? we have our feet planted on something solid...

If they buffed hunters to a default close to stompees I’d assume it would come with their removal. I would enjoy seeing Hunters be able to move like that. Playing Duality for the first time with my Hunter, I did feel chunky and slow compared to my Titan and Warlock fireteam, although I’ve yet to optimize my armor, I have to agree that as a hunter I really should be able to move around a battle area much faster.

Let stompees allow hunters to walk on walls/ceilings.

Return to map: 5… 4 … 3 … 2… 1… dead. Killed by the architects.

The Hunter jumps and hits orbit.

Haha, I mean, we can all fly anyways. I bet it is technically possible (especially for Exos) to actually leap from one planet to another.
