Crouching is the act of lowering ones center of mass towards the ground in order to reduce the overall exposure or to maintain or increase covert maneuvers.
Primary Uses & Attributes of Crouching:
- Reduces movement speed by 50-70%, while adding the benefit of making your footfalls silent
- Increases Your spatial awareness with reduced blur/bloom effects, head bobbing motion, and the added benefit of an increased ability to hear threats incoming.
- Increases your sphere of influence (or, otherwise known as reducing the AGGRO Range & Modifiers) towards the Zombies (A.K.A. The Infected UnDead, Walkers, Z's, Zeds, Rotters, The Walking Dead) in the general area.
- This effectively makes the Zombies continue their passive nature until they hear or see a Survivor (A.K.A. Live Player, Uninfected, Immunized, Genetically Immune) in Direct Line-of-Sight
**Note: Zombies can hear movement on various terrains such as gravel, grass & wood at a fair distance**
