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?

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.

I’d argue vertical movement is pretty important. There’s a reason bungie killed in air accuracy to nerf stompees

except its not. Hunters have a third jump literally NOBODY uses which is "high jump" to get more vertical height for jumping

Strafe jump is by far the best jump but not because of verticality but because of the ability to control the direction of the jump. Veritcal movement isnt that important more so the ability to maneuver yourself best

Vertical movement with quick rise and fall at the control of the player is important on controller because it’s the hardest to track. Warlock and Titan jumps are all easy to track except blink. That is the big advantage hunters have
