Fix Dead Space Remake Sprint bug

The ultimate horror-survival game, Dead Space has finally received a remake, upgrading the game’s graphics into them being phenomenally good, with the game promising a much more immersive gameplay than the OG Dead Space. As goes with any game that’s new, though, the game’s currently facing some bugs and errors that need to be fixed. One of these bugs is the Sprint Bug, where the game would cause Isaac Clarke to halt at times when sprinting. This makes him vulnerable to hordes of enemies in proximity, especially the Necromorph Enemies.

Facing this bug can be quite annoying as you’ll basically be doing your best to escape from places in order to survive. It’d be horribly wrong to get eliminated to something that isn’t controllable per se. However, there’s a fix! In this article by Frondtech, we’ll be covering how you could fix the Dead Space (remake)’s Sprint Bug! Here we go:

How to fix the Dead Space Remake Sprint bug

  1. Start the fixing by first opening up the controller layout tab, which can be accessed via the pause menu.
  2. Now, look for and hit the clear option, which’ll clear out all the keybinds that have been assigned to control customization.

  3. What this’ll do, is clear out any extra keybinds that have been assigned to the actions.
  4. This clears out a bunch of those keybinds however, not all. As reported by a number of players, the bug disappears automatically as a bunch of the keybinds are cleared. (not sure how that works, though, please fix developers!).
  5. Once you’ve done the above-mentioned procedure, just save the changes you’ve just made and head back into the game to check if doing so has resulted in an instant fix.

The default keys for sprinting for the console would be holding down the left analog key on your controller and the shift button for PC players. If the bug isn’t still fixed, it might be a good idea to head back into the customizations menu and hit the “reset all keybinds” option, which’ll get the game’s control settings back to default. 

As the game is still very new, we don’t know when the patch will be released to fix this particular bug. However, we can expect it to be pretty soon as this bug is quite well known right now and is technically gameplay-affecting if we might say. 

That’s everything we had regarding the Spring Bug in Dead Space’s 2023 remake.
