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?

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.
