This is a tough question. It kinda depends on what changes get made based on the Beta. I played Hunter most in Beta, but I didn't like the Golden Gun animation (He-Man bug zapper). I love playing "stealth" but the GG just ruins the Hunter class for me. At least Bungie is buffing the pulse rifle and hand cannon. In the beta, there were 4 guns that were truly competitive in PvP (and more deadly in PvE, too): AR, scout rifle, shotgun, and sniper rifle. Only SR and AR are primary. As a Hunter, I played the SR most, because the AR really doesn't fit the class--isn't stealthy, Hunter doesn't have the hit points/armor to go toe-to-toe. If I could play Hunter with a pulse rifle that could tightly group rapid-fire-rounds-to-the-head at a decent range, that'd be sweet. To me the pulse rifle is the right gun for Hunters: killer-quick, precise, and deadly.
The other class I worked up to lvl 8 was Titan. I mean if AR is the best primary gun in the game, with crazy-tight grouping at decent range, reasonably high Impact, and off-the-charts fire rate, all you need is a tank-suit to be a lumbering death machine. Oh, yeah, and a two-button-panic-smash-from-hell. I was amazed how many of the top Crucible players ran Hunter instead of Titan, then I realized: because slow. And because Titan's got no flash. If you're good enuf in the Crucible to have your own YouTube channel, dafuq you gonna play Titan for, when Hunters got a freakin superhero cape.
I played Warlock the least in Beta. For that reason alone, I might roll up a Warlock on 9/9. Having only got to lvl 4 with my 'lock before Bungie pulled the beta plug, I never really figure this class out. Like, it's a Mage, right? With a shotgun. Ooookaaaay, why? Course, the only gripe I see on the forum about the Warlock is it's [i]armband[/i]. Seriously, that's your issue, 'locks? The armband? This class must be freaking perfect. Plus, trenchcoat, nuff said. But what primary gun should I run? I mean getting shotgunned by a guy who can throw lightning bolts is a nice piece of punctuation, but if your ready-carry is an AR like everybody else, it takes a bit of the magic out of the class. Now if I could rock a deadly hand cannon named Timur's Wand, I'd be on Twitch, Project-Runwaying the -blam- outta that Assassin's skirt.
So which would I def not choose on 9/9? The Human, because Humans gotta [i]dye[/i] their hair that color, and they gotta [i]don[/i] their armor.
I'll be running PS4: clayeponym if you wanna add me.
