TPS - Double Tap to Dash?

Hey guys, I’m currently researching how to make my character perform a “dash” via double tapping a movement key. If anyone can give me advice or knows how to do this, it would be really appreciated.

As far as a “double tap” goes, I think I might be able to figure that part out. The actual dash seems a little more complicated. What I have in mind is a simple burst of speed, not to be confused with a “sprint”. Here’s a visual example:

Thanks in advance.

bump 10 char

Just get their forward vector and move their location forward x amount using a timeline and a lerp and add a particle or material effect behind them. This way their animation wont change as if they are running really fast and it will just move their position forward however far you want over whatever time you want.

thank you!
