How to Sprint & Run Faster in PUBG on Xbox One
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) was a massive hit on PC, offering up 100-player battle royale action. Fortunately for Xbox One fans, PUBG has finally arrived on Microsoft’s system via its Preview program, and while the experience is largely the same, the controls are obviously different from the mouse and keyboard inputs PC players are used to. Here’s what you need to know in order to sprint and run faster in PUBG on Xbox One.
First things first, it’s worth noting that sprinting at full tilt across the map isn’t always going to be your best chance of survival. Sometimes, you’re better off having your character crouch with the B button before continuing to sprint. This makes you a smaller target and far more difficult to see in high vegetation. To sprint while crouching, simply click in the left stick while you’re crouched and move it in the direction you want to go in.
If, however, you’re being shot at and you need to bolt nice and fast, as you may have guessed all you need to do is make sure your character is standing upright and click in the left stick again while moving in the direction you want to head in.
Should you find this simply isn’t fast enough, there is a way you can run faster in PUBG. You’ll need to route out either painkillers or energy drinks, however. If you consume enough of these and fill your boost bar past the third notch, you’ll get a speed boost to your sprint on top of the standard health regeneration. As such, it’s always worthwhile keeping some of these items in your inventory should you find yourself in a tight spot that you quickly need to bolt out of.
