Sprinting in Elden Ring

The main issue players face while trying to sprint in Elden Ring is that they end up dodging. The reason for this is that Elden Ring has assigned sprinting and dodging mechanics to one key.

The key will perform dodging first when you press it. So in order to sprint, you have to hold your dodge key.

However, PC players still struggle even if they hold the sprint key. To solve that, you have to walk for 2 seconds and then hold the sprint key to start running. The same thing applies to Torrent. You have to repeatedly press the doge button to accelerate on Torrent and you can also press the jump button to jump while riding the mount. Now, let’s check out how exactly you can sprint on different platforms.
