Movement speed refers to how fast the player can move, aswell as animals, mutants and creepy mutants.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Player movement speed is reduced by 15% on both sand and snow. The player can use snowshoes to walk faster on snow, though it appears to have no effect on sand. All mutants move faster than the player. Cowmen, when charging move much faster than the player and mutants. The player moves faster than virginias and armsies even when they are charging. Deer move faster than the player when running. Sharks swim faster than the player, the longer a shark charges at the player, the faster it becomes. The player has the same movement speed as lizards and rabbits. The player is faster than all other animals not mentioned.
