I see so many people that complain about the lack of autorun in this game.
There is an easy way to create one yourself.

1. Launch DayZ through STEAM.
2. Once you are in a game n want to start running do the following:
  • Hold down your movement key (W)
  • While doing this, open your STEAM overlay (Shift+Tab)
  • Release your movement key once the STEAM overlay is open
  • You should see your character is still running while the overlay is open
  • Close the overlay & your character should still be running
3. You can do anything that doesn't hinder movement such as steering with your mouse, free look around, etc...


Enjoy

Personally I use the lid of a Bic pen.

1) press down 'W'

2) insert bic pen lid between w & e

3) remove pen lid when done

Enjoy

It should also be noted that to stop auto-running you simply tap 'W' once again. It's also a wise idea to change your Steam overlay hotkey from "SHIFT and TAB" to the tilda key ( ~ ). Reason: tab can continually scroll in-game and makes menu and gear interface glitchy.

Not as reliable and may not work on all keyboard models. With using the Steam overlay, you're still able to type to friends while auto-running. If you depress W with the pen lid, you can't do anything else except watch your character run (or go AFK).

How do you get your steam overlay into DayZ? DayZ is a non-steam game now...Shift+Tab does nothing for me.

Who needs to type when you can just open your gob and utter whatever guttural sounds, you personally, call verbal communication?

Are people getting so lazy as to where holding down a button with your finger is too much work?

I just stick some folded paper into the space between my button. My friends use various coins... Also, folded paper would work with literally any keyboard in the entire world that has ever existed.

I'd say finding a way to hold your key so you can use the time spent holding it for something else while still managing to travel across the massive world is the opposite of lazy. This would also mean that anyone who DOESN'T do it is lazy.... You sir, are lazy.

That. Of course you will be depended on your cats mood and we all know how cats are, right? So while a sweet fluffy purring cat on your keyboard is a really nice addition to those boring walks through the loney woods it is not that of a reliable technique, so a penny will just do the job. :)

But here, have a cat:
