Crouching during the descent of leap should make less sound than a normal landing.
The crouch jumping is fine where it is.
I jumped literally beside the FT outside of the door they were in and no one checked to see if I was there.
I feel maybe if you are doing a jump from a crouch, maybe you have “enhanced” stealth with the cloak?
Each pred has different amounts of sound when they move around too.
In the current state anybody with headphones will hear it and tell exactly the direction it came from. Unless they are deaf. It is loud and specific.
Landing crouched will drop the thump a bit but I think still detectable anyway then maybe some slow creeping with the right stick while you strategize. Least noisemaking things the pred can do. Everything else is loud as fuck.
