Change Log

  • Nerf: increased the cool-down from 40/30/20 seconds to 60/50/40 seconds.

Patch 1.3.0

  • Nerf: running reduces the Cool-down Recovery speed by -50 %
  • Buff: crouching accelerates the Cool-down Recovery speed by +33 %

Patch 1.4.2

  • Quality of Life: activating Sprint Burst while in the Dying State IconHelp dying.png is no longer possible.

Patch 1.5.0

  • Nerf: now triggers the Exhausted Status Effect, preventing the combined use of multiple sprint-inducing Perks.

Patch 2.1.0

  • Nerf: Exhaustion no longer recovers while running.


Trivia

  • The use of Sprint Burst can be "saved" by letting Exhaustion recover to 99 %, then running continuously to prevent it from fully recovering.
    When the appropriate time for its use has come, a quick stop to recover the last percent is all that is necessary to have Sprint Burst at the ready.
  • The flavour text on the Wiki comes from the Developer's old website, which featured Sprint Burst with said text.
