Wondering how to walk in Dying Light 2? Have you been sprinting around and feel the need to rest and enjoy the view of the City? Well, as much as you may feel for your in-game character, it is not exactly possible to walk in Dying Light 2. The next thing you could possibly look for is a fix or a workaround to walking in Dying Light 2. Unfortunately, there’s no fix to the same [yet]. Don’t be bummed, we may see the inclusion of such a feature in the future. If you would want to indulge in the game’s visuals, there’s a small workaround that may or may not be appealing to you. To know, keep reading this article.
Why is the walk feature missing?
If this is your first Dying Light adventure, know that the prequel also didn’t feature a walk option. Well, the series wanted to shed more importance to escaping and action. Walking doesn’t really fit into such an idea. On the other hand, Techland has designed a huge, beautiful open world [The City] for players to explore. Well, you will have to fight zombies and explore the City. The main idea of the game is zombie parkour. However, fans now wonder how the essence of an open world is justified without options to slow down and enjoy the view.

How to walk in Dying Light 2?
If you want to play Dying Light 2, you will be forced to sprint all the time. There’s no option to walk in the horrifying City. However, there’s a workaround you can try if you have a controller. Just push the controller stick slightly to trigger a slower sprint movement. Well, that isn’t walking but it definitely is better than running around the map all the time. But you cannot perform this workaround using a keyboard-mouse set up. Some fans have suggested trying to crouch and move as crouching will slow down the speed. Again, it’s weird to move around the map while crouching, isn’t it?
Another user suggested stopping and enjoying the scenary and he isn’t wrong. You can definitely choose to stop and take your breath:
I mean, if you wanna sniff interiors u can…stop and take those wallpapers in? Who says you have to keep running? – WissyMeisteri
However, a scene in motion may look more appealing to some fans. It all boils down to one thing: there’s no walk feature in Dying Light 2 yet. However, there’s a possibility that Techland will take such much-reported user feedback into consideration and include a walking option to the game’s control system. We definitely hope such a thing happens!
