Fortnite has seen a huge number of new features and mechanic changes since the start of Chapter 3, Season 2.

One of these is sprinting, which gives you a five-second burst of extra speed to get yourself out of sticky situations.

Read on to find the platforms or platforms on which you play Fortnite to find out which button you’ll need to press in order to sprint. Regardless of which pre-set mode you use, sprint remains the same. On all devices, the sprint will last for up to five seconds, and you’ll see a white bar on the left-hand side of the screen which will deplete as you sprint. You will then also see the bar replenish when you stop sprinting. If you cannot see the sprint bar, you’ll know your speed boost is topped up and ready to go!
