The Importance Of Not Being Seen

How To Avoid Being Seen

  1. Remember: opacity is the key to successful hiding. Be certain when selecting cover to avoid the overly translucent.
  2. Do NOT stand up. If you are hiding behind a rock, for example, and someone tells you to stand up, doing so is probably not a good idea.
  3. Remember that you can't put your hands over your eyes and think you are hidden.
  4. Pretend you are the person you are hiding from. What can he see? What are the lighting and obstacles that he is looking at from his angle? Understanding your target is essential.
  5. Pick a place of cover to hide behind. Take care not to make it too obvious. Take time researching as much as possible about your target location to decide if it is the best for hiding purposes.
  6. Keep as small as you can. The smaller you are, the less there is to be seen.
  7. Keep as quiet as you can. Remember that being seen is more than just visual; if someone hears you, then he will look directly at the sound, which will give you away.
  8. Do not tell anyone where you will be. Even if you tell a well-trusted friend, she may spill the beans about where you are. Control of information is critical to secrecy. Find out where everyone else is, and keep your own information secret.
  9. Act normally. Be like others and no one will recognize you. If you are in a large crowd, sometimes anonymity is better than secrecy. In that case, know the crowd, and act/look/sound like everyone else.
  10. Avoid eye contact. Once you've looked someone in the eye, they'll be attracted to examine you further.
Good Luck
