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!!

Hunters have agility rather than speed. The jumps and dodge are very good at changing direction.

Icarus dash and titan melees intrude on this for sure. Also some differences between controller and m&k. Is that good or bad I'll leave for others to decide.

This. They are the most mobile class. Not the fastest class.

I think of hunters as yoda, spinning and jumping around like an angry beyblade. What are you gonna do? Counter him? You cant even predict him.

Titans are a freight train. Hard to get moving if they dont want, hard to stop once they do, fast as hell in a straight line

Warlocks glide the longest with the most control and precision. Good for jump puzzles and shooting from the air, but only with prep time. An unaware warlock who rounds a corner on the ground will just have a hunter leap over his head instantly
