Force Sprint on a Sentinel?

I'm not 100% sure, I only leveled a Sentinel to 50 back when the game was first released, however, I don't remember them having Force Sprint as an ability. Apparently my memory is deceiving me because I saw Sar of The Azure Blades using Force Sprint as a Sentinel.

Any explanations?

Plus going off that screenshot I'm not sure how that is proof that they used "force sprint"

Sorry, I should have explained myself better. While in combat, sprint was activating, and took the animation of a Sage using the Force Speed. I'm going to start recording my gameplay and try and catch it live.

Sentinels don't get a force sprint like consulars or inquisitors, but in ataru form, they get 15% increase to their speed through a passive skill, and the can use predation, I don't remember the sentinel name for it and the speed for that can be increased by speccing carnage/combat. In the picture though, the sentinel wasn't in combat, I don't mean the spec because he's specced combat, but he still has his normal sprint ability that all classes get which makes him run faster than someone that is fighting.

Edit: I started typing this before the other posts were typed.

Ataru form or they could have popped that group speed thingy.

Look at his screenshot guys. The Sprint icon is active. He has 26 stacks of fury with no pred buff on his bar. The fury stacks are fresh which means he's in combat.

He's in ataru form. That's 15% speed boost. IF he popped predation, he would be going at 80%, which is almost as fast as a sorc with force speed or w/e it's called. In fact, if an Ataru + pred sent or mara were to race a sorc with force speed, the mara would win, since the pred lasts much longer.

Highly doubt it is hacking.

I'm starting to feel sorry for CS because I can only imagine how many stupid reports they're getting. It has become an epidemic to call "haxx" on everything. In basically every warzone, or atleast in general chat while I'm in a warzone, there's someone calling hacks on a normal game mechanic. Had a guy accusing a sniper of moving around and shooting in cover in one warzone just now. There were no hacks so if that really happened ON HIS SCREEN it was most likely due to latency, the sniper fired and got out of cover and it somehow looked like he was still in cover. I don't see people calling hacks when someone pulls while another person stuns and you get suspended in a weird pose mid-air, that happens to me in bascially every game. Reason, it doesnt affect game play, despite being a bug too, so people accept it but God forbid that an offensive action should be bugged, then it's instantly a hack.

tl:dr - People are idiots.

There is a bug where you won't be put back in combat. I have seen it several times. If the bug is affecting you, you can even use your Meditate (or whatever out-of-combat self heal) while getting attacked, in addition your Sprint ability will remain activated.

As far as I know Sar is not a hacker, have played against him many times.
