Dying Light 2: How to Sprint & Run Faster

Techland‘s zombie parkour-’em-up, Dying Light 2, is finally out and on store shelves, and while players will be spending the bulk of their time trying to survive against throngs of the walking dead, you’ll also be busy exploring and discovering all that’s on offer in a mysterious, dilapidated European city. Thanks to how incredibly epic the game is, many of you will likely be wondering how to sprint and run faster in Dying Light 2. In this guide, we’ll clue you in on what you need to know. So, without further ado, let’s get into it, shall we?

How to Sprint

Surprisingly, unlike most other games, there is no dedicated sprint button in Dying Light 2. Continuing to run in a direction by holding the left analog stick forward will cause you to slowly increase your movement speed into a sprint.

Increasing Sprint & Movement Speed in Dying Light 2

You can increase your general speed and movement by allocating upgrade points into the Parkour section of your ability tree.

There are a number of Parkour skills you can purchase to increase your sprint and movement speed in various ways. We’ve listed these below:

  • Dart: Temporarily increases your movement speed, which allows you to jump across wider gaps, reach higher ledges or run longer on walls. Press L3 while running to gain a brief burst of speed.
    • Requirements: 1 Parkour Point, Skill: High Jump, 140 Stamina
  • Dash: Dash for as long as your Stamina lasts. Hold L3 while running to move faster, as long as you have Stamina.
    • Requirements: 1 Parkour Point, Skill: Dart, 180 Stamina
  • Afterboost: Gain a brief burst of speed after performing specific parkour moves.
    • Requirements: 1 Parkour Point, Skill: Dash, 240 Stamina
  • Bash: Bash through obstacles and enemies without stopping. While in Dark/ Dash, press R2.
    • Requirements: 1 Parkour Point, Skill: Dart, 200 Stamina

While some of these don’t directly just increase sprint speed, they do allow you to sprint for longer, or be faster in your parkour traversal.
