How to Sprint & Run Faster in Outriders

To sprint and run faster in Outriders, simply press L3 by clicking in the left stick on both PlayStation and Xbox, or press and hold shift on PC.

To stop sprinting, let go of L3/Shift and come to a stop. Then just continue moving without hitting the sprint button to run around at a normal speed. Or, if you want to walk slowly, just lightly push the analog stick forward.

Sprinting is key in Outriders. You’ll be using it a lot throughout the game. You’ll obviously use it to get around quickly from place to place, but it also has its uses in battle as well.

Outriders is a very aggressive game, so you can use it to quickly charge into battle and get in an enemy’s face. Or, on the flip side, if you’re overwhelmed sometimes you just need to run away until you find a place where you can safely recoup.

There’s no limit to how much you can sprint, so use it to your advantage whenever you can.
