Witcher Wiki

This is a DIY (do-it-yourself) mini-mod.

Download this Mod from Witcher Nexus. This mod will enable the Witcher to move anywhere between 15%-25% faster than normal:

Faster Movement Mod

The movement speeds are governed by these two 2DA files:

  • \DATA\2DA00.BIF\creaturespeed.2da
  • \DATA\2DA00.BIF\moverates.2da

Note that this mod changes only the speed you move — not the speed you fight!

Also note that these files do not actually exist in your installation folder. You will need to extract the BIF files using third-party applications.

You will need to edit these files. Before you do, I suggest you familiarize yourself with the 2DA format article under the file formats category.

  • First, you need to modify the creaturespeed.2da file, so open it up in the editor of your choice (this is a small file, so I recommend Notepad). Take a look at this line:
9 Witcher **** WITCHER 1.70 4.00 1.0 0
You can adjust the speeds any way you like — let's double them for now. After it is done, the line should look like this:
9 Witcher **** WITCHER 3.40 8.00 2.0 0
Save the file with the same name and put it in the \DATA\OVERRIDE directory.
  • Second, you need to modify the moverates.2da file, so open it up in the editor of your choice (this file is medium size, but Notepad should be still enough). Take a look at this line:
1 chr_geralt 1.7 1.54 3.30 1.55 1.2 2.6 1.52
Again, you can adjust the speeds any way you like — let us double these as well for now. After it is done, the line should look like this:
1 chr_geralt 3.4 3.08 6.60 3.1 2.4 5.2 3.04
Save the file with the same name and put it in the \DATA\OVERRIDE directory.

There is no need to start a new game; just load a saved game and enjoy your mini-mod.

See how it feels and experiment with new values as you like.
