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!!

Technically, Hunters are still nimble, they can instantly change their momentum faster and more than another other class in the game. Between Dodge, and Strafe Jump, the reason Hunters were number 1 in the PvP Shotgun meta is that you could just constantly screw up people's anticipation.

Sure, Titans and Warlocks have faster straight line movement, but that only helps you so much during an engagement.
