Better Sprinting Mod 1.12.2, as the name shows, is available to better sprinting system in Minecraft which always felt unfinished and unrefined by saving it and add a bunch of extra glitter. This mod allows you to bind sprinting to a key! Great thing about it is it’s compatible with most mods that change options, like Optifine! But one annoying thing is incompatibility with mods that change behavior of player entity or Controls menu (adding new buttons using GameSettings will work, changing like, way Controls menu works/looks won’t ? it’ll break saving settings).


  • Sprint (hold) key which allows you to sprint
  • Sprint (toggle) key which when pressed, toggles between sprinting and walking
  • Sneak (toggle) key which when pressed, toggles sneaking
  • Sprint menu key to quickly access Better Sprinting settings ingame (default: O)
