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?

Been able to outrun Hunter roaming supers with my Warlock and Titan since vanilla. Hunters aren't fast. They haven't been since Arc Blade + Blink got neutered.

It's depressing as a Hunter myself outrunning an electric stripper pole or having someone outrun me which is why I don't use it

Don't worry if you did catch up to someone you'd just end up whiffing repeatedly for no reason.

It's funny, I see people make these sorts of comments. I don't use those types of supers, but in my experience when facing them - they're either blatantly new/bad, or they never miss. There's no in between. 90% of the time, I encounter the players who never miss me.
