Looking for how to change the sprint controls in GTA Online? If you're tired of mashing the X button to reach top speed in Los Santos, then Rockstar has finally implemented a solution. As part of our GTA Online guide, we're going to explain how to change the sprint controls.
GTA Online: How to Change the Sprint Controls
Mashing the X button to sprint in GTA Online is one of Rockstar's worst ever mechanics. Fortunately, you no longer need to. Either from the main menu or in-game, press the Options button and select Settings. In the Controls section browse to Sprint Mode and select Hold to Sprint. This will allow you to reach top speed by holding the X button, instead of mashing it.
Can You Change Sprint Controls in GTA 5?
Unfortunately, the new Hold to Sprint toggle only applies to GTA Online, so there's no way to enable the setting in the single player GTA 5 campaign. This means you'll need to continue mashing the X button in order to reach top speed when playing as Michael, Trevor, or Franklin.
