Sometimes the most difficult thing in a RPG is trying to get enough speed to run away from the enemies. Indeed, in Baldur’s Gate 3 there will be many strong enemies that we might have to run away from. That’s why we’ve put together this how to run in Baldur’s Gate 3 guide to help you get some speed.
Clearly, that’s not the only reason you want to be running. Perhaps you just want to speed things up, in order to get as fast as possible to find a certain companion or be on your way to some steamy romance.
Still, no worries as we are here to provide you with all the useful information you might need. Read on to find out the answer to how to run in Baldur’s Gate 3 and how we can get those legs to work.
How to run in Baldur’s Gate 3?
In Baldur’s Gate 3 running is enabled by default. This means that in order to make your character run, you just have to click where you want them to go. Definitely simple as that, in this case.
So perhaps we should, instead, look at what to do if you want to stop running. Perhaps you want to get somewhere slower, for some reason, like a full party of enemies waiting ahead. Unfortunately, since there is no walk toggle button, the one way to do it is to be stealthy.
Here’s how to activate stealth:
- Make sure your character is hidden from enemies
- Click on the icon with the face half hidden by a mask
- This should activate the stealth mode
Keep in mind that stealth is more easily broken than invisibility, but at least it has an unlimited number of uses. Just go crazy with it, if you want. But what if you’re having the problem of your character not running anymore?
How to make your character run in Baldur’s Gate 3
Sometimes, it seems your character doesn’t want to run anymore. You were just jogging five minutes before, but now they are much slower. What is going on? Well, you are probably carrying too many items and your character is overencumbered.
To solve this, you can either drop right away items that you think you won’t need or, better, wait for this first shop so you can get rid of loot for money. Naturally, it is possible to raise the weight limit for each character, by training them in the Strength ability.
Another quick solution comes by the way of a mod, the classic D&D staple The Bag of Holding. A huge bag on the inside, it can be used to store lots of items up to 300kg, after that limit it will start to weigh more and more.
