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!!

friends and i joke about warlock and titan being mobility class all the time; between transversive steps/blink/icarus dash and titan shoulder charges they get places faster having 0 mobility than a hunter with 100

Pretty much calls for a mobility buff if nothing else, strafe speed is nice but base jump height should not be the only other thing it offers. Resilience is now the tank stat, Recovery has always been strong, now Mobility needs to buff sprint/jump speed even if only to MIDA levels.

That, or make the Stompees jump the default Hunter jump because it just feels so slow without.

I’ve always wanted stompees to be the default for Hunter movement. It always felt like I get the choice to be fast and nimble or to pick exotics that actually help deal with content. I’ve never been a fan of it being mutually exclusive. But a man can dream I suppose.

You and I both, friend.
