Before discussing how to do an explosive sprint, it is worth talking about the controller settings, or at least one in particular, that is, the "Analog Sprint" setting, by default it is activated ".

The way this setting works is simple, the longer you hold down the sprint button, the faster your player will sprint. Turning it off will cause you to sprint at full speed no matter how hard you press the button. We suggest turning it off if you want to use the Burst Sprint feature regularly.
