Better Sprinting Mod for Minecraft 1.12.2/1.11.2


Some Minecraft mods add content to the game which seems like it should have been there in the first place. The Better Sprinting mod, for instance, adds single button sprinting and a toggle feature to turn automatic sprinting/sneaking on and off at the player’s discretion. As it is, players need to double tap w in quick succession to get a sprint going, and sprinting can be interrupted by being hit, falling into a hold or getting caught on a ledge during a jump, so this gets very annoying very fast. Many players who install Better Sprinting never go back to the old way of running around again – it’s just that useful.



In addition to helping the player move faster and sprinting more often, Better Sprinting mod also makes flight faster. That’s only useful in servers which allow the /fly command, or if players are doing Creative Mode on their own computers, but it’s still a nice extra feature. Usually players will slow considerably once they start flying, even if they were running before they took to the air. This works for regular jumps too, so parkour fans can finally rejoice! Glitchy sprints will never be the reason for falling to death on a parkour course again with this mod.


There is a run in all directions option which allows players to sidestep and backpedal with alacrity as well. This is kind of cheating, but it’s also very useful when fighting against other players for getting close to strike, then getting away from them quickly before they hit you back. Because of this, Better Sprinting mod is easy for other players to detect and using it may get you banned from multiplayer servers – you’ve been warned. Still, it’s hard to get this kind of advantage in movement and combat without a mod like this.

  1. there is a glitch with this mod when you use forge you recive no knockback when fighting other players please fix it thanks

  2. i don’t get it, if this is for 1.8 why would people use this mod, because this is already in vanilla minecraft already,
    people don’t double tap w anymore, they use their sprint key, (default being Lcontrol). why this mod was updated to minecraft 1.8 i will never know because i’m probably not gonna use it, anyways thats all i wanted to say

    • It’s used because people dont wanna hold the sprint key. For me perosnally, I only found out about this mod today and it makes my pvp alot better. Because my pinky finger is relaxed from not holding the sprint key. I dont know, But for me it’s alot better.

  3. Because of you this fucking shity mod is making pvp worse, its just give them a fucking advantage the only use them in servers. It just makes pvp the worst thing ever. Now people use it to much their not even getting fucking banned from this server. This mod is shit, it just mad pvp soo unfair to people I wish this mod was banned from every server and the person who mad this just fucking die because this mod is so unfair!

    • if it’s so overpowered, than why dont you download it yourself? it’s not unfair as everyone has access to it…

  4. Forge 1.8 Version removes knockback, making this classed as a “Hacked Client” Style of mod, I recommend either removing this modification or at least admitting on the review that it does this.

    Kind Regards
