I would really like to know if you can run backwards in Minecraft?

Is this possible?


In Vanilla Minecraft, you can't.

There is however, a mod that does this: Better Sprinting. This mod allows you to use keybinds for sprinting instead of using the default 'double-tap forward' feature. It also allows you to toggle an option to turn on sprinting in all directions, which is exactly what you want - plus it allows you to sprint sideways as well!

Better Sprinting Keybind Menu

Have a look at the video below to see it in action:

  • There is a key bind for sprint... Default Left Ctrl – ModDL Mar 31 '15 at 6:18
  • @ModDL - True, but it IS the primary point of the mod hence why I mentioned it - the sprinting sideways/backwards is a secondary feature, but it will do what the OP wants to do :) – Robotnik Mar 31 '15 at 6:24
