I agree that it should go. Stop/starting with fists up is clunky and makes for awkward gameplay both for the player doing this and anyone watching them. It oozes lack-of-polish.

Not when you've got nothing in your hands, when you have your fists raised like you were going to punch someone.

If you didn't have anything in your hands, you'd be able to sprint a little faster, in the real world it helps develop efficient leg movement when running using your arms. I say keep it in. It's realistic. To reiterate when fists up run slightly faster.

It's the "superman sprint"!

Please keep it in as an easter egg! :-D

I actually like this bug :D They see me sprintin´ ,they hatin´ :D

Having this issue has well and it's damn annoying seeing people run x2 as fast i really really hope they fix this becuase it will reduse the trolls running like retards. Thank you for the report we need more people voting this!

Additionally you do not become winded while sprinting with hands up so you can pull out a rifle and scope without wobble.
