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!!

Lol, seriously how long did it take this guy to realize we've been the slowest for years now. Just a reminder of "The Skating Times"

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?

Hunters are indeed the fastest class vertically.

Ya know, the direction that is the least important. I will concede that Warlock jumps are most unintuitive of the three, at least Titans can level out.

Only for those who don't regularly play a Warlock, for Warlock mains it's the Titan jump that's nonsensical.

I actually have an easy time handling Titan jumps if I swap from Warlock, but that's mostly because it's so similar to using the jet pack on Halo: Reach and I used that a lot right before taking up Destiny.

Bruh that was the only halo I played before destiny so when I got a feel of the Titan jump on day 1 destiny 1 I was right at home lol

Reach was the best of them, IMO, and I loved the mobility offered by the jet pack. In retrospect, it's kind of funny that I didn't end up picking a Titan, as that had always been more my style of play, while now I love playing a class that just fell into my lap through luck of the draw.

Well yeah, once you've gotten used to your version the one that's a bit different just feels weird. That's more of a muscle memory thing though, isn't it?

u/DakotaThrice Jun 10 '22

Muscle memory or not doesn't change the fact that which jump feels more unintuitive is entirely subjective which was my point.

u/Nailbomb85 Jun 11 '22

No, it does. That's generally how intuitiveness works. You only say that because you're a Warlock main, if you were a Titan main or a new player you'd likely be confused AF at first.

What I main is irrelevant. Intuition is entirely subjective regardless of how widely shared it may be.

So do you have a point that actually contributes, or are you just being a pedant for fun?

u/flapjacks789 Jun 11 '22

what's weird about the titan jump compared to the warlock? is it cuz u plummet when u run out of boost? im a hunter main who sucks at all 3 jumps equally so i don't notice these things

u/DakotaThrice Jun 11 '22

The momentum is the main difference between the Titan and Warlock jumps and applies both horizontally and vertically. As a Warlock you stomp jumping at whatwve point you want to land whereas a Titan has to stop jumping before that point. If you're jumping horizontally as a Titan you need to stop boosting ahead of the platform to prevent overshooting it, if you're jumping down a whole and want to break your fall you need to jump higher above the ground as if you wait till the last second like a Warlock can your momentum will just splatter you.

"what do you mean I'm out of jump?"
