At this point pretty much everyone knows how in games stealth works. In SCUM we took that another step further. Just sneaking everywhere thinking you are safe won’t cut it out on the island. If you want to live, you will need to keep a track of your gear. How much stuff you carry and what you carry, and even in the best circumstances if another prisoner has a high awareness skill he will be able to notice you (also depends how high is your stealth skill). Oh and yea sound is not the only way you can detect someone, dip yourself in water from time to time so you dont smell because it might get you killed if someone gets your scent, and if you are not able to do that at least check in which way the wind is blowing!
