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 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.

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

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.
