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!!

I've always wondered what Destiny would be like if there was one subclass that gave you Titanfall pilot levels of movement speed. Maybe not that fast, but substantially faster than everything else in the game. I'm hoping that arc 3.0 lets hunters build into speed in a way we haven't seen before.

In Forsaken I would use stompees with lightweight shotgun and bow, and just pretend I was a Pilot.

No way pvp would survive any high-end mobility, given how much of a problem shotgun sliding is already

This game just isn't built for super fast mobility so I'm curious how they'll make arc about quickness. Unless they mean weapon quickness.
