|In-game description||“Allows you to walk underwater at full speed.
Some servers consider this a speedhack.”
|Default value||not checked|
“Prevent slowdown” increases underwater movement speed in the same way as wearing enchanted boots with Depth Strider III. If the user is already wearing Depth Strider 3 enchanted boots, toggling this setting makes no difference.
The “Prevent slowdown” setting is disabled by default because it can cause rubber-banding issues on servers with AntiCheat plugins.
