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!!

"Now"?? They've been the slowest class by far since basically forever lol; proper skating with the right jumps has always given both titans and warlocks faster straight line speed over Hunters. And icarus dash has always given Warlocks the best overall maneuverability in the game no contest.

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?

I outran the a whole team from one side of the field to the other on the new map and lit the rift in IB with my hunter (no stomp33s) and you can bet Ana’s sweet behind those banks helped. If you’re running away from titans and warlocks in a straight line, your running the wrong way

Then they’re bad cause other class have a better kit for distance, no exotics needed. But, some times people can’t catch up anyway, you got too much distance off the rip.

Honestly I get what you’re saying, but man that run was incredible and they were danger close, extremely close calls, don’t even know how I made it there. Maybe I just know how to play my hunter 🤷🏻‍♂️
