Default Key: (PC LShift, PS L1, XB LB)

Details Edit

Soldier: 76 runs at the speed of 8.33 meters per second, 50% faster than his normal speed. He is unable to use his other abilities while sprinting, because using any of them will stop the sprint. This ability has no cooldown.

In the Game Options, Soldier: 76 has an option that affects his Sprint:

  • Hold to Sprint: When enabled, the player will have to hold the appropriate button (along with the forward button) to keep Soldier: 76 sprinting; let go of the button will make him return to normal speed. Otherwise, pressing the button once and holding the forward button will make Soldier: 76 sprinting until the forward button is let go.
