I don't know if this has been suggested or not, but I think it's pretty important for "realism".

If anyone on here has ever crawled around on the dirt they will know it's pretty ****ing tiring. Hell, I got tired crawling around with just a paintball gun :eek:

Seems like an easy thing to implement too.

I think we should be able to sprint while crawling to crawl faster(just like when we crouch). It'd be really useful for those situations when a grenade falls right in front of us and we have to crawl like a turtle xD

I like the crawl-sprinting idea. Making crawling constantly sap your stamina would be kinda lame. You'd always be tired while prone and your aiming would suffer, which is sort of against part of the reason for going prone (more stable firing position).

It'd also be nice to have the range of movement limited. No 180s allowed while you're in the dirt. Rolling might be interesting to see, though.

I think it's a pretty good suggestion.
I mean, how far does one really crawl in RO? And who said anything about a fast stamina drain? It doesnt have to drain as fast as it does when you are sprinting, just a slow but constant drain should suffice.
And if you lie still, because there's not a lot of lost stamina you could get in a good shooting position again pretty quickly.
So +1 for this idea.

And the 'dash crawl' as Xendance put it is a very good idea as well, like crawling on hands and feet instead of on your belly.
It would make you a higher target but faster :)
So +1 to this as well.

I meant that you would just crawl a lot faster if you'd press the "dash" button. It's very possible (reminds me of those obstacle courses with wires under which you had to crawl as fast as possible) but it does drain your stamina at least as fast as sprinting.

We could nitpick about lots of things that would sap your stamina in real life. Even simple things like shouldering a rifle could tire you a bit.

I think crawling should sap your stamina but it should do it much more slowly than for instance if you were full on sprinting, then it would probably be acceptable.

Nice one! Sprint crawl would be great to have.

I'm always for anything that offers more dynamic movement.

But when would you need rolling? It reminds me of Time Crisis when you'd have annoying enemies roll out from the side or something.

Also I think it was in Hidden and Dangerous 2 where your stamina was slowly drained if you crawled, but that depended on the speed you were going. I like how you have 4 different speeds in that. But I only think that 3 would ne necessary, walk, run and sprint. It would also be pretty annoying having to wait for your stamina to recouperate when you're crawling.
