Ready or Not is a new tactical shooter reminiscent of the old Rainbow Six or SWAT games. It puts a ton of gadgets and features in the hands of the players to take on missions. However, one of the features that gave players the most problems was, surprisingly, sprinting. It’s a little more complicated than you might expect.

Why Sprinting Is Not Default in Ready or Not
Ready or Not is made to simulate modern-day SWAT missions. It is also a hyper-realistic game in which the developers consoled with police teams globally to faithfully recreate rules of engagement, ballistics, and many other features, including sprinting.
With so many gadgets, weapons, and armor, the officers move pretty slowly in real life. In Ready or Not, both civilians and enemies are noticeably faster than the player by design.
Many design choices increase immersion and make it as lifelike as possible. If you find something that does not seem right, like sprinting, that may be intentional.
How to Sprint in Ready or Not
While you can’t sprint “per se,” you can increase your movement speed by fiddling with your controls. First, if you navigate to settings – controls, you will notice that the traditional sprinting key for games – Shift – is bound to the “Walk” command. The default movement in Ready or Not is not walking but slow walking.
This is especially annoying to players who are used to more modern games in which fast and fluid movement is a crucial aspect. Being a tactical powerhouse, Ready or Not tries to make the players take levels on slower and methodically. You can get around this by binding another command to the movement key.
To do so, navigate to the controls once again and clear the “Walk” command. Then, move to the “Interaction” tab of the controls menu and bind the “Hold Low-Ready” command to Shift or your preferred movement key.
You can notice that after activating this command, your character will now move much faster, making it easier to navigate the maps. However, this comes at a cost. The running animation makes your character put your weapon down, so it will be tough to draw your gun in time to fight the enemy if you are ambushed.
Make sure you keep this in mind and only sprint when it’s safe to do so.
