The Binoboost glitch is an Exploit in Dark Souls II, discovered on May 19, 2014, by Steel Steelovsky, that allows the player to, for a brief moment, run at higher speeds than normally attainable, by rolling and attacking while zoomed in with the binoculars. Fixed in Patch 1.04. Does not work on Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin.
