Late post, but why is it that the hunters and warlocks always seem to be trying to outdo each other? (Lore wise I mean not players) About six pieces of my armor/capes make mention of being better looking than the warlocks , or being better fighters, or just bragging that our capes are cooler. (which they are.) One says to call my cape some exotic word saying 'warlocks respect words they don't understand'. Why the cannon fude between the two?
Here's why Hunters win over Warlocks. 1) Glide jump. I've not done Crucible (never got round to it) but I know that glide jumping would leave you vulnerable to snipers. It's not like you glide very fast is it? The Hunters double jump is much more practical. 2) Limited range of Nova bomb. Nova bomb is awesome, no doubts. But when not upgraded it's just an overpowered grenade. The Golden Gun gives you three extremely damaging shots that have more range than the Nova Bomb. Any decent shot could score a headshot against any advancing warlock. 3) Cloaks. Well, the world knows that cloaks are better than armbands
