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.
    • Letting go of the Run button while performing some actions, like Vaulting, can allow a Survivor to recover Exhaustion without needing to stop.
  • The flavour text on the Wiki comes from the Developer's old website, which featured Sprint Burst with said text.
