How to run in Roblox Doors

Let's get going!

In horror/survival-style experiences like Doors, which require a player to encounter and evade numerous terrifying monsters, the ability to escape, and do so quickly, is crucial. Most of the time, players can escape an area by holding down the Shift key to run or sprint—but what if that control isn't an option? To learn more about running in Doors, including whether or not you can even do it, continue reading the brief guide below.

Running FAQ

Can I run in Doors?

The short answer to this question is yes, but also technically no. If you attempt to press the Shift key while inside of Doors, you'll notice that your character will crouch rather than a sprint, which may cause some alarm. There is no direct sprint button inside this experience; it's simply built into the character's standard movement.

How do I run in Doors?

The answer to this question is likely much simpler than you're expecting. To run in Doors, simply move forward in one continuous direction. Upon doing so, your character will begin walking, increase to speed walking, and finally start running after moving in one straight path for a few seconds. Each time you stop and start moving, however, you'll need to regain speed by completing the same process again.

The only time your character will run without needing to gain speed beforehand is during the Seek chase sequence. During this sequence, your character will run automatically, and you won't need to use C or Shift to crouch—if you approach a path that requires you to crawl, your character will do so automatically.


That's all there is to know about running in Doors. It may seem confusing initially, but with practice, you'll be sprinting in no time!
