For those who’re jumping into PS5’s latest exclusive, Returnal, you’ll not only be busy traversing otherworldly environments across an alien planet dubbed Atropos, but you’ll also be battling your way through heaps of creepy-looking extraterrestrial beings that really want to see you pushing up the daisies.

Luckily, in this guide, we’ll tell you how to sprint and run faster in Returnal to help give you a fighting chance against the unearthly beasties that want to eat your face off.
