Final Fantasy 15 - Infinite sprint trick and other ways to increase stamina

You'll be spending a lot of time on foot, so learn how sprint forever.

Though you have several modes of transportation available to you - from Chocobos and even a flying car - you'll be spending a lot of the game on foot, so expect to do a lot of running as you go from mission to mission.

While our hero Noctis can sprint, he gets exhausted pretty quickly, so it pays to learn how perform Final Fantasy 15's infinite sprint trick pretty early on to save on the frustrating wait for him to get his breath back.

How to get infinite sprint in Final Fantasy 15

As you're sprinting, if you tap the sprint button again (Circle / B or L3, depending on your preference) just as stamina is about to run out. If performed successfully, Noctis will flash green and the bar will instantly refill to allow you to carry on.

To make the timing easier, we're recommend turning on the Stamina bar by going into the game's options, so you can easily see when it's about to deplete. It's a little unsightly, but you can also tell when Noctis starts to pull out of sprint into a walk, if you don't want it up.

Here's the infinite sprint trick in action:

Other ways to increase sprint and stamina in Final Fantasy 15

If you're struggling to get the timing right (practice pays off, and it'll be worth it in the long run - no pun intended), want to increase stamina to hang out at warp points for longer, or if you are simply fed up of having to keep an eye on the stamina gauge, then you can also increase the length of your stamina bar through other means.

Need more help? Our Final Fantasy 15 guide and walkthrough can provide tips on main story, as well as the open-world's many quests and activities. Learning how to get AP fast, EXP fast and money or Gil fast will aid you in many optional dungeons and tombs - including how to open and explore their locked doors. There's also plenty of interesting side-quests, too, such as the Scraps of Mystery and Professors Protege frog locations. And if you want to get around easier, you can rent a Chocobo, learn the infinite sprint trick and later in the game, get the flying car Regalia Type F. There's also more to see and do with DLC, such as Episode Gladiolus and Episode Prompto.

One is by permanently increasing your stamina bar through Ascension abilities Sprinter (24 AP) and Distance Runner (99 AP), increasing it by 5 and 10 seconds - though note you'll need to unlock the Hang In (12 AP) node first.

The other is through the 'Endurance' status effect from making the following Recipes:

  • Royal Road Paella (Cleigne Mollush, Bleigne Darkshell, Saxham Rice)
  • Smoked Behemoth (Behemoth Tenderloin, Griffon Breast, Kujata Marrow)
  • Thick 'n' Juicy Steak (Catoblepas Brisket + Kettier Ginger)
