Crouching is a gameplay aspect that allows the player to increase their stealth and to help perform stealth kills. While crouching, the player's movement speed is decreased. To crouch, hold down the CTRL key while moving. Crouching (especially in bushes and near rocks) will decrease the player's likelihood of being spotted by cannibals. Crouching is also used for placing multiple amounts of the same blueprint when building.

Known Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • (multiplayer) When crouched, your nametag disappears for everyone else, and if you get downed when crouching, it can be very hard for people to find you, as you now have no name. (Was intended to be in the game)

VR Version Behavior[edit | edit source]

  • Crouching does not activate the Stealth UI whether it is enabled in the settings or not.
  • Physically crouching lower than about 40% of your Virtual Height will cause your view to reset to your default standing height. (This does not exit stealth mode but does increase the height of your in-game body allowing detection while behind low cover)
  • Most actions can be performed while crouched in VR including some that would be prevented (Downward axe swing) or deactivate stealth mode in the standard game.
