I already fixed. If you have a skin for your dual shock, take it off. I had the same problem and I tried taking it off the skin (to protect the controller) and it worked. Now I can sprint well
I know why you can't sprint. It's a simple and stupid reason. SH when making ww2 they set the full sprint/run speed at 100% input value. If your controller has any wear (this can happen in less than a year of use) it won' be able to achieve 100% input and the connections have worn down.
Most devs know this and set a dead zone or something like 95% input = 100% value. You have two options, scream and post as much as you can so they change this (it would literally take them a few minutes) or buy or repair your controller.
I recommended if you do decide to buy a new controller get a SharQ controller. Imo they are better and a lot cheaper than a scuff!
Having the same exact issue, my characer will start to do the animation and immediately drop it and start walking again. This controller is less than 6 months old, and L3 works perfectly fine on every other game...
Walk forward then press n hold in the furthest part of the analogue, works for me
im having trouble as well... works in every other game but WWII, i press L3 and it starts to sprint and after half a second stops and i start to walk again. i cant hold a sprint and i am not pressing anything that will cancel it.
