IIRC there were abilities or cybernetic upgrades that increased movement speed. There are dashes too for momentarily boosts. That and i think some upgrades like Gorilla Arm might affect the melee in some way.I'm wondering how V's variable movement speed will affect a melee build, or if the base speed can be upgraded. As it is in the demo, V moves quite slow compared to other FPS games. And there's a gradual increase in speed from motionless to full walking. This is common in TP games but the vast majority of FP games eliminate it or drastically reduce it.
