Guide to Stealth Movement.




Introduction: Guide to Stealth Movement.

Read the title.

Step 1: Clothing.

Clothing is very important for stealth movement, as different materials generate more or less noise. I wont cover everything but I will cover the most important, those being pants and shoes.

For shoes you want light, comfortable shoes with a soft sole. The best suited would be water shoes. They are cheap, incredibly stealthy, good for swimming (who would have guessed) and way easy to get.

For pants a light, tight fitting pair made from a natural fabric is best, such as wool. To test whether you're clothing is good or not, rub the fabric against itself. If it is loud, don't use them if it isn't then great.

Step 2: The First Step.

This is a general purpose type of stepping, use it when running, walking when stealth isn't of the utmost importance and when traversing areas laden with dry leaves. (however you should generally try and avoid these areas) Okay, this is how to do it.

Start by stepping lightly on the outside of your foot near the back. Now roll from there to the inside of the ball of your foot. Keep practicing with it and soon you will be able to run along concrete creating no sound (to the human ear)

Step 3: The Second Step.

Use this for when stealth is the number one priority. This type of step with proper application and mastery can be used to sneak up on your dogs, even when they are on the alert. Ive done it with the aid of cayenne pepper. (masks the human smell)

Step down lightly with the ball of your right foot. Let all the weight lie on your left foot. Now slowly start to transfer the weight onto your right foot. Repeat for the left foot.

Start slow and work on stealth. Don't go for speed. That comes later.

Step 4: The Third Step.

This is used to traverse areas such as gravel and dry leaves (the first step works for the leaves but not as well as this step)

This is by far the hardest step to master of those i've shown you. Generally avoid these areas as even masters in this technique cannot cover these areas completely without sound and even then it is slow moving.

The thing to this technique is to step down with all the weight equally distibuted, flat footed. Try also to reduce the contact sound (if you don't know what that is Im not going to explain it to you, you're ignorance shall be your downfall MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!)

Step 5: Tips.

Move with your whole body - incorparate your whole body into the movement e.g. hips, knees etc.

If someone hears - stop and listen to see if you've been discovered. If not, continue but be wary as continued noise will become suspicious.

Don't disrupt nature - you may be the most fleet footed human being on the planet but if someone hears say a bird get really alarmed and fly away as quick as they can, that person is going to know somethings knot right.

Try and avoid - trouble areas such as gravel. Surely you could find another way?

Etc, etc.

    really i walk like that all the time scares pepole


    another thing to add is I think the smaller the gravel the easier it is to be heard where if you step on larger sized gravel you will be heard less but you will still make sound.

    That would be because their takes less stones to cover the area, less stones rubbing up against each other making the noise. So in turn less noise.

    but always be careful with large stones, they can be unstable. with your mass on the wrong place, they can turn / roll over, making quite some noise, and making you lose your balance. that way, you can hurt yourself really badly....

    I agree, it would be even better if you showed us what you're talkin' about.
