Key Sprint Mod


Sprinting in Minecraft has been in the game since the Adventure update, which was Beta 1.8.1. It’s been quite a while! Sprinting in the game is pretty good, but sprinting in the game is also very unrefined, mainly due to the lack of a sprint key. The only way to currently sprint is to press “W” two times. Though it may seem alright at first, you lose a ton of precision when you have to pull off sprint jumps that require precise timing. Let’s take Battlefield 3, for example. You can press “W” two times to sprint, or you can optionally press the “Shift” key to sprint as well. why can’t Minecraft do the same?

Introducing theKey Sprint Mod! TheKey Sprint Mod is a mod that makes it so you can bind the sprint command to a key, such as the “Shift” key. This will come incredibly handy when you need it the most. For example, let’s say you’re getting chased by creepers. Your main goal is to run away. Nobody in their right mind would stop running to press “W” twice. If you mess up, that could cost you dearly. Thanks to this mod, you can sprint with no hassle whatsoever.

This mod excels the most in Parkour maps, which require a decent amount of sprint jumping skill. I don’t know about you, but pressing “W” twice, proceeded by a jump almost directly after, can be pretty hard to time. I would much rather engage the sprint key, move forward, and spend more time actually timing the jump, rather than spending time trying to sprint.

All in all, this mod is pretty small, but it certainly makes a huge impact when it comes to times that require precision. If you want a mod that binds the sprintaction, then this modisfor you.

Since this mod is more of a mod that has to be shown in a video, rather than a screenshot, here is a video showing what the mod does.
