The world of Nier Replicant is a sizable one, with a variety of locales to explore and travel through. Some are narrow and winding, while others are vast stretches of plains and fields that take a while to get through. Regardless, going through these areas at a snail’s crawl over and over again can be a pain, and has left you wondering how to sprint and run faster in Nier Replicant.
Well, worry not. In this guide, we’ll walk you through how to pick up your pace and ensure you don’t spend too much of your time sauntering around the world between story segments.
How to Sprint and Run Faster in Nier Replicant
There are a few ways to sprint and run faster in Nier Replicant.
One way is to hold down R2 on PlayStation 4 or RT on Xbox One. Doing so will see your character break into a sprint after doing a dodge roll. They’ll keep up this pace until you either stop moving or collide with an object in the world.
Your other option is to continuously run in one direction while Auto-Sprint is on. This will see your character break into a dash, and you’ll then keep sprinting unless you stop moving or collide with an object. This option can be useful when you can’t use the first option in situations like the Fragile Delivery sidequests.
As for how to turn on Auto-Sprint, it should automatically be applied when you start the game. You can turn it on or off at your leisure by going to the Options tab of the Grimoire Weiss menu, selecting the Game tab, and then scrolling down to the bottom of the list.
That’s all there is to it really. There’s no stamina system that you’ll need to worry about, so you can sprint around as much as you want without worry.
