Move Speed is a Stat: Speed of movement in cells per second (c/s). A default Human has a base movement speed of 4.6 c/s.



First of all the following offsets are applied to the Move Speed Base value.


The following factors are applied after the Offsets.

External factors[edit]

The following factors do not show up in the pawn stat GUI and are applied after the Post factors.

    Maximum speed of 29.61 c/s vs base speed of 4.6 c/s

    Moving speed of a particular pawn can be calculated using the following formula:

    Move speed = (Base value + Offsets) × Factors × External factors

    Let us calculate how fast a human could possibly go. It would have the following values:

    Move speed = (4.6 c/s + 0.4 c/s) × (4.23 × 1.4) × 1 = 29.61 c/s
    1. Be aware that it is not possible to achieve this speed in a short time as 3 hard drugs have a 100% chance of causing a Minor Overdose and reducing Consciousness by 50%. 0.042 Overdose Severity is lost every hour so you would need to wait 1 to 6-hours between drugs.


    Offsets, such as the speed decrease from gear or traits, occurs before multiplicative factors such as Moving. So while a normal human moves at 4.6c/s, and a human in a flak vest moves at 4.48c/s for a difference of -0.12c/s, a pawn with 2 archotech legs would move at 6.9c/s while the same pawn in a flak vest would move at 6.72c/s for a difference of -0.18c/s. Similarly, jogger-traited human moves at 5.00c/s for a difference of 0.40/s compared to baseline, but a pawn with 2 archotech legs would move at 6.9c/s while the same pawn as a jogger would move at 7.50c/s for a difference of +0.60c/s.
