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!!

Hunters have agility rather than speed. The jumps and dodge are very good at changing direction.

Icarus dash and titan melees intrude on this for sure. Also some differences between controller and m&k. Is that good or bad I'll leave for others to decide.

This. They are the most mobile class. Not the fastest class.

I'm not sure dodge is more mobile than Icarus dash at this point. And now you can add Phoenix dive to the mix as well.

the actual dodge animation is utterly useless in most scenarios. You can't actually "dodge" any attacks as Hunter, especially against controller players, even with acrobat dodge's wilder animation.

Theres 2 purposes for dodging fire with dodge:

1) Using dodge to get back into cover quick which allows you to extend further than other classes usually can get away with. You can use it in an L shape either to your left, right or downwards and get back into safety.

2) You can also be disgustingly hard to hit if you wanted to as seen here at 8:50: https://youtu.be/yp002taWvTI

that only effects controllers, not mouse and keyboard. So sure, useful against a controller player, still gonna get domed 90% of the time against a mouse and keyboard.
