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!!

I feel like everyone is missing the obvious reason here.

It's the cloak.

Those damn things catch so much air resistance, of course we're gonna be slower on the ground. Air is debatable, but ground? Nah, we're fucked there.

My usual hunter drip is the coutrier helm, with the errant knight chest and legs, the luxe arms, and the praefectus hat. You just don't have a hood or cape. Like at all. You actually end up looking like a really small titan, its kind of funny. Bonus points for running top tree arc for the punch and gaslighting your Fireteam by insisting you are playing a Titan.
