The Nightstalker is the new sub-class for the Hunter, and is a sub-class obtained by completing the quest, The Nightstalker's Trail. 

As you'll note below, the Nightstalker has an incredibly powerful Super that allows him to tether enemies to a single location. Unsurprisingly, this is incredibly powerful in a Raid environment as it allows Nightstalker's to control the flow of enemies that are attempting to attack. Alongside this, the Nightstalker gains a powerful set of Grenades and melee modifiers to make him a powerful addition to PvP.
