    Please add walking back into UT4, it is an essential move mechanic for advanced FPS games. Every CS player knows this, but even in Quake players would use walk to be silent (and move faster than crouch). It means interesting fighting stances you can make to fool your opponent. ADVANCED is how we all like UT.

    Are you for real....? This sounds as if a lot of ppl including the developers have virtually no experience in UT at all....

    In UT99 walk was essential because:

    - Jumps while holding walk were shorter but had less height so if you could reach places with both it was smarter to walk-jump so you would touch the ground earlier and be ready to move again(play BT for one day and you would know that)

    - Walking on an edge made it impossible to fall off. Crouch does that as well, however, with walk you still had your head and crosshair on the normal height so you could throw down shock balls/rockets without hitting your face. Without walk you would have to crouch towards the edge, stand up and then shoot which is a) a lot slower and b) looks totally ridiculous

    - Holding walk enabled you to jump normally while having Anti-Grav Boots equipped. I know the boots were changed in UT4 but you asked what "benefits walk gave over crouch" and furthermore I liked the old boots mechanics better anyway.

    - Holding walk made frog bounces shorter but a lot easier to perform which was a key aspect to BT and some UT99 CTF maps


    These are but the main examples why walk was an essential movement key in UT99.

    IIRC this was intended to get you back into the action after respawning which is why it kicks in automatically after 2 seconds instead of having a manual key for it.

    What does that mean kyaxiz? Have they made a mention about walk?
    I really dont get it. I figured walk was taken out of UT3 because that game seemed like it was made for a joystick. Running full throttle all the time unless I duck is a disaster.

    I used to use the walk function when duelling to remove predictability. It's certainly useful for one on ones or large maps where you want to sneak up on someone.

    LOL, that is an AWESOME idea!

    One thing I'd like to add: Upon watching and playing in the esl cup and spectating players who are crouching I have to say that it just looks stupid. There were some players, myself included at times, who's natural position was to just crouch and It felt pretty unnatural and weird from a spectator point of view. Adding walk would make it look much more natural and it really has no downside, it's not like it over-complicates anything :/

    Walk does feel missing when coming from quake. Cant keep quiet in duels... and using crouch lowers your eye height. Walking will help a lot in duels.
    When duels become serious and both contenders have great aim... walking can be the difference...

    You could actually walk in UT3 after editing some stuff in the inis if I'm not mistaken. It was very useful
