How to Sprint in Fortnite on PC, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PS5


Fortnite fans will have noted that the game’s new ‘tactical sprinting’ function has been added to the game as part of Chapter 3 Season 2, and it’s a great method to avoid getting into trouble now that constructing has been removed from the game.

Sprinting is a vital skill in Fortnite, whether you’re using a PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One or Xbox Series X/S console. Epic Games had this to say about the new feature: “You’ll have to give up anything you’re holding in order to complete this sprint. A new sprint metre will tell you how long you can keep up the speed of running at such a high rate.”

No one, however, wants to be left behind, and if all of your competitor players are sprinting across the map at breakneck pace, you won’t want to be caught short at any time throughout their race. Continue reading, and we’ll show you how to do a tactical sprint in the most recent edition of the game, Fortnite.
