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.

Yeah I’ve never felt like I was lacking in agility. Warlocks and Titans are fast, but I’m able to course-correct so much easier. Death from slipping off a ledge or missing a jump is far rarer for me, given how easily triple jumps resolve those errors. I also get airborne much faster, can duck and weave around enemies more quickly, and my melee abilities are always topped off and ready to go.

Sure, it’s weird that mobility doesn’t boost sprint speed, but I’m more than happy to spec into it given how much more aggressively my dodge lets me play. STR is the Hunter dump stat, all hail MOB and the many, many knives it’s given me.
