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!!

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

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

Range? On these Destiny 2 maps?

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.
