What is the sprint button in Minecraft 1.5.2? I know it's a silly question to ask, but I can't seem to find it. Thanks in advance for the help.

  • iirc, 1.5 didn't have a sprint button, I think you need to press your forward key (w by default) twice in rapid succession. Commented Apr 19, 2015 at 4:38
  • also can you tell me how to get jar files, cause i'm having some problem with it, thanks in advance. Commented Apr 19, 2015 at 4:50
  • @PigDestroyer - Please ask that as a seperate question... And what .jar files?

Quickly double tap then hold the forward key (default is W) to sprint.
Alternatively, in version 1.7.2 or later, you can hold Ctrl and W instead of double tapping it.

You cannot sprint if your hunger bar is 6 units (3 drumsticks DrumstickDrumstickDrumstick) or lower.

In Minecraft 1.5.2 there's such no sprint key, but there's another way to sprint. Quickly press , quickly release it, and then hold it to sprint. At the beginning it could be a bit hard, but after some days it will become easy to do.
