Arboreal – How to Sword Dash

This guide shows you how to perform a glitch to travel faster in the game.


The requirements are quite simple. All you need to do this is:

  • A long straight path.
  • A sword.

Performing the Technique

Step 1: Preparing

  • First you should find a straight path to practice on. This isn’t required but is good to prevent you from bumping into things. The path in front of your home works great. Next you should start moving in the direction you want to dash in, very simple.

Step 2: Swing your sword and dash

  • While you are moving in the direction you want to dash in, swing your sword (only once) and you should come to a complete stop. While you are stopped, quickly spam the roll key (space or shift) and when the sword has finished swinging you should take off in the direction you want to move in really fast.

Step 3: Have fun

  • While this isn’t very difficult, it is very useful. Not only can it be used for travel, but it can be used for dodging or charging (as I did in my first battle). I hope this guide was useful to those who either found this accidentally and had no idea how to control it or those who had no idea this existed.
