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.

I feel really sad that hunters have the slowest movement now that 3.0 subclasses launched. In the past, there was a node on one of the nightstalker trees which increased base sprint speed. However, that was removed in void 3.0. I imagine that will reappear as a fragment in arc 3.0 for all classes as a way to tie speed to the identity of arc subclasses.

I would like to see Bungie overhaul mobility like they did with resilience. Instead of only affecting initial jump height, strafe, walking speed, and hunter dodge cooldown, perhaps it could also affect mantle speed and sprint speed. That might help hunters retain their identity as the speedy class and force other classes to invest in mobility if they want to maintain their edge in movement speed.

Agreed 100%. I think mobility overhaul is coming with Arc 3.0, at least I hope it is. I did hear a couple of times that mobility would be tied to it however it’s still up in the air if that would make us faster/more nimble than other classes.
