Gotta go fast!
It can take a while to get places in No Man’s Sky, especially when you’re hoofing it. While you can enhance your stamina to sprint longer (taking up a prized inventory slot), here is one simple trick culled from Reddit and tested myself that lets you move even faster than the sprint speed.
If you follow up a melee (R1) with your jetpack (X), you’ll jut forward even more quickly.
It’s incredibly useful for when you accidentally wander way too far from your ship in the early game and your toxic-ass irradiated starting planet starts to kill you before you can make it back.
No Man’s Sky tip: Melee (R1) and jetpack (X) in rapid succession & you’ll move faster than the sprinting speed!https://t.co/3EqHL2Fez4
