Autowalking, or autorunning, is a common concept in modern games. Well, it triggers sprinting or walking at the press of a single button. Well, it won’t be replacing the traditional hold to sprint feature anytime soon, but freeing yourself from having to hold a single button to perform a basic task can be a big relief. So, here’s how you can auto-run/toggle walk in Starfield.
Starfield: How to Auto-Run/Toggle Walk
Find your bindings
Just like Sprint or turning on Flashlight, Autorun also has a specified key binding attached to it. Did you miss it in your normal walkthrough? Well, don’t worry; it’s easy to locate. Just follow these simple steps and figure out the binding:
- First, what you need to do is open the menu screen in Starfield. Press the Start button on your controller or the Esc button on your keyboard, which will open the main menu.
- Then, locate the Bindings tab. This tab shares all the details on what key is assigned to which action.
- Now, you will see a three-column menu named Action, Main Key, and Alt Keys.
- Scroll down and locate an option called Toggle Always-Run.
- Now, look in the next column; it’ll show what key or button is bound to this particular action. In the case of the keyboard, it’ll be the Caps Lock key and L3 if you are using a controller.
- After this, close the main menu and press Caps Lock, and your character will start running on its own. If you press the Caps Lock button a second time, then the auto-run will halt, triggering auto-walk.
Can you assign a different key to always run?
The answer is yes. If you remember, there was a third column in the binding option called Alt Key. If you press the second column from the row where Toggle Always-Run was mentioned, you can press some other key, and it’ll register it as the secondary key binding. Let’s say your keyboard has five additional unmapped keys. Most gaming keyboards will have spare keys for this kind of situation. You can assign one of them to toggle Always-Run or anything else that you like.
Now that you have learned how to toggle Autorun/Toggle-Walk in Starfield, it’s time to test it in the game. If you turn this option on, your character will auto-run, and if you turn it off, your character will auto-walk. You don’t need to keep holding any keys to perform the specific action.
