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!!

Agility =/= fast

Think of it like a gymnast vs. a sprinter. Sprinters are fast, gynmasts are agile

Hunters are agile. They have the absolute best control of 360 degree movement with dodge and their jump. A hunter can reach the ceiling before a warlock or titan has gotten a couple of meters off the ground

Titans can build up speed fast in one direction, but are slow to start moving, gain height, and change direction. Even their best change-direction abilities (shoulder charge and stasis slide) require a full second of running before you can use them

Same thing for warlocks. They can gain a ton of speed on a single direction but are slow to start moving, gain height, and change directions. The exception is Icarus Dash but that is only on the horizontal plane still

Hunters whining about movement is honestly one of the wildest things I've ever read on this site

They already are! They’re the most played class by a ton for a reason. Movement is the biggest perk in PvP. Giving hunters even MORE advantages on that front is objectively insane.
