December 18, 2019 Bungie says Hunters aren’t all bad, they’re just an easy target.
Bungie – or more specifically, Bungie’s David ‘DeeJ’ Dague – has a reputation for picking on Destiny 2’s Hunter class. In the interest of the most serious of journalistic investigations, we asked DeeJ directly what the deal was – and why he’s not a big fan of Hunters. “Oh, that’s not true at all,” DeeJ tells us. “I’m a Warlock, and just like any player of Destiny, the choices that I make about my character are important to me as a person. To create some fun interactions with the community, I like to stoke the rivalry. But I appreciate every class of Guardian – the way they complement each other, the way they counter each other, the way they create healthy competition in the Crucible, or good cooperation and collaboration in something like a strike or a raid.” DeeJ adds that Hunters are “just so easy to pick on, with their capes and their knives. So it’s just something we do for a little bit of fun on social media.”
