Horizon Forbidden West: How to run and run faster

Aloy is back in Horizon Forbidden West from Guerrilla Games, and with a huge world to explore and interact with, most players wouldn’t want to be just strolling around. In fact, getting to where he needs to be at the fastest speed possible might be his preferred way of playing. If so, our guide on how to use sprint and run faster in Horizon Forbidden West will be exactly what you need.


How to sprint and run faster in Horizon Forbidden West

Naturally, Aloy moves at a pretty decent pace. However, if you really want to cover the distance on foot, you will definitely need to sprint. Not only does it help you get to your destination faster, but it’s also very useful if you’re trying to avoid enemy attacks or find a better position to engage once again.


  • Start by moving in any direction

If you’d rather not have to deal with clicking on the analog stick, head into the menus and under the Accessibility tab, there’s an option you can tweak to make sure Aloy is always running in-game. This will save you precious seconds and always keep you moving fast.
