Sprinting via double-tapping the "forward" button cannot be bound separately from the "forward" button itself. This means there is no way (outside of hunger) to not sprint when tapping the "forward" button in quick succession, which may be required for precise positioning.
- Double-tap your usual forward button while grounded and the hunger bar is full if applicable
- Note that this causes sprinting
- Change the forward keybind to an unused key such as G
- Double-tap this new key and note that you still start sprinting
The double-tap-to-sprint behaviour would either not follow the forward movement button (being a separate key bind which functions identically to normal sprinting, which is bound to the same as forward by default but can be changed independently of it), and/or there would be an option elsewhere to disable the double-tap behaviour.
While the left control to sprint functionality can be configured like most other controls, the double-tapping of forward cannot - there is no second "sprint" option in the list of controls nor is there any such toggle in the accessibility options. However, it does follow what the move forward button is. This may be considered a feature request but for a control to be absent from configuration does not seem right.
