The Sprint ability gives all infantry (including Snipers and the MG 42 Heavy Machine Gun team) the possibility to move very quickly for a short period of time. Infantry squads can use this to dodge artillery or set up a flanking move. Likewise, weapon teams or snipers can use this to get out of harms way.

Infantry is not able to fire their guns while sprinting, stopping enables them to fire again even while the ability is still active.
