How to Sprint in Hogwarts Legacy

Learn how to sprint in Hogwarts Legacy with this easy guide, even though we know you might prefer using the broom and flying.

Sprinting has become a staple in modern RPGs—and for a good reason. Even though many games nowadays feature fast-traveling points or mounts of different sorts, there are still some sections where it makes more sense to run than to call the mount.

In Hogwarts Legacy, the main focus is on flying—which is more exciting than running by all means—but running or sprinting still has a lot of practical benefits. If you’ve just started playing the game, and you’re not sure how to sprint in Hogwarts Legacy, this is the guide for you.

Is it possible to sprint in Hogwarts Legacy?

A lot of open-world games tend to follow similar recipes in their approach to gameplay mechanics and controls. While we could argue that it’s all becoming predictable or repetitive, sometimes it feels good and familiar to have similar traversal options, so that you can jump right into a new game and feel at home.

Luckily, sprinting is possible in Hogwarts Legacy, even though that may not be so obvious when you start the game and go through the story-heavy prologue/tutorial. When you first gain control of your character, you are hurt and have to take it slow, which means walking at first and running at a casual pace soon after. Still, if you’re accustomed to sprinting in other games, you may be hitting random control buttons and trying to make your avatar move faster to no avail.

Don’t get frustrated if you can’t activate sprinting right away. This option is introduced later on in the prologue, when the game prompts you to hit L3 on your PlayStation or Xbox controller to move faster as you explore the mysterious Gringotts vault.

From then on, you will be able to dash around to your heart’s desire. We hope you have fun with it, and if you have any other questions or need more help with Hogwarts Legacy, check out our section dedicated to the game.
