Battalion 1944 Movement Guide – How to Strafe Jump, Crouch Jump, Movement Tips

Battalion 1944 Movement Guide to help you learn all about strafing, strafe jumping, and other movement techniques.

Since the game is a first-person shooter, there are not many movement options except the basic player movement but combine them together and you will get some really cool movement tricks that are in other words not easy to see by any typical gamer. With the help of these Battalion 1944 Movement Tricks, you will be able to get an upper hand over your opponents.

Battalion 1944 Movement Tips and Tricks

These include different types of jumps that can be performed in order to increase the distance that you can cross in a single jump.

We have also detailed some basic movements for you here so you can jump right into the action without having to explore the movement controls. Even after knowing all these tips and tricks, you must practice a bit to get a hold on all of them. However, before we begin, you should also check out our Basic Strategy Guide.

Basic Movement

You can move the player around with W, A, S, D key in their respective directions. Pressing shift will make you sprint. Now you must keep in mind that sprint speed depends on the weapons that you are currently holding.

Heavier weapons tend to make you slow because of their weight and light weapons will make you agiler. You can choose which weapon you want to use depending on your playstyle.

If you prefer being fast and nimble, you can choose any of lighter weapons such as pistols, SMGs, and stuff. These are light and easy to handle allowing you greater mobility and fast-paced movement.

If you prefer heavy weapons like rifle and rocket launchers, your movement will be affected because of their weight. Weapons such as grenade launchers and rocket launchers tend to be the heaviest so they will have the most impact on your movement.

Apart from this, there are five basic positions in which you will be in most of the times. These are prone, crouch, stand, jump and lean.


Probably most used by snipers, prone is yet another basic movement option in Battalion 1944. It allows you to have maximum accuracy and makes you even harder to shoot at.

You take very little space while you are in prone position. It is also an important element of Battalion 1944 and when used properly, it will help a lot to survive and kill as many enemies as possible.

Pressing the ‘Left Ctrl’ key will make you go prone. To stand up, press the ‘Space Bar’ key. You can go prone to crawl under different obstacles as well. It gives you access to many great vantage points and makes you nearly invisible to enemies who are not very careful of their surroundings.


Pressing the ‘C’ key will make you crouch. It is very handy in tight situations, as crouching will make you hide behind certain objects so you can easily avoid enemy fire.

Crouching also increases your aim so you should try to crouch while firing. It reduces the fire spread and ensures that you get that headshot. Crouching is vital for sniping accuracy. Pressing ‘C’ again will make you stand up.


Leaning is yet another basic movement animation that allows you to stay behind cover and shoot. You can press ‘Q’ key to lean left and ‘E’ key to lean right.

It works great in many events where you must stay at a place and defend it. You can get behind some cover and then lean left or right using the keys to shoot at enemies.

However, it is not advised to stay at one place for a long time and lean out of cover. When you lean out, you are a very easy target for a sniper.

When you lean out, your head is out in the open so anyone using a sniper or someone skilled enough with a regular rifle can take you out with one shot. So always, be aware of your surroundings before you let your head out in the open.


Another important element of movement in Battalion 1944 is jumping. Now jumping has been very weirdly used in FPS games lately, whenever a player comes under fire, they start jumping like a clown which not only looks weird but also shows lack of skill.

Normally, jumping in FPS games or any other game is used to get over different obstacles or jumping over great distances so that you do not fall down to your death.

Pressing the ‘Space Bar’ will make you jump. You can jump one time when you press the key so make it count. You can also fire while you are in the air after a jump. There are different jumping techniques that can help you in various scenarios. We have detailed them below.

Normal Jump

Normal Jumps are basic jumps that cover the default distance when you use them. You can use them to climb obstacles and cover normal sized ditches and distances easily. Simply press the key of any direction and press ‘Space Bar’ to jump in the direction.

Normal Jump + Crouch

A technique to increase your jump distance slightly is by crouching and jumping the same time. To initiate such a jump, start running towards the ditch or obstacle, press ‘Space Bar’ at the edge to jump off and then in mid-air, press ‘C’ to crouch. This will increase your jump distance slightly and will allow you to cover the obstacle.

Crouch Jump

Now Crouch Jump is used to increase the jump height rather than the distance. If you come across an obstacle that is higher than your normal jump, you can use the Crouch Jump to overcome it. To start a Crouch Jump, near the obstacle press ‘C’ to crouch and then press ‘Space Bar’ to jump much higher than a normal jump.

Strafe Jump

Strafe Jump is yet another technique to increase your jumping distance. The trick here is to involve the mouse in the direction of the jump to increase the distance. Here, you must make sure that your character is not moving straight towards the jump but rather in a strafe position.

So start with running by pressing ‘W’ and ‘A’ towards the jump and then use “Shift’ to sprint. While at the edge, press ‘Space Bar’ to jump and then in mid-air rotate the mouse in the direction of the jump to land safely over the distance.

Strafe Jump + Crouch

Using the same technique as the Strafe Jump, if you press ‘C’ button at the end of your jump, you will further increase the distance of your jump. This technique is a little advanced and it might take you some time to practice before you can actually use it.
