Adds Stealth Meter
The Stealth Meter is vital for sneaking and remaining undetected by enemies which gets unlocked when you get the stealth skill. When you crouch and enter sneak mode, the meter becomes active. A white meter indicates that you are less likely to be detected, while an orange to red meter signifies the alert level. This is especially important for some covert missions.

The Concealment Skill allows you to deal much more damage while sneaking and at Rank 3, your character gains the capacity to briefly attain a state of invisibility, which provides a distinct advantage when approaching your targets. However, note that they will be able to see you if you get too close.
Executing sneak attacks with a knife often requires a some level of skill in stealth. It minimizes the risk of alerting nearby enemies, which can be vital when operating in restricted spaces or infiltrating guarded areas. Stealth kills with a knife consume fewer resources than engaging in open combat, where ammunition might be expended.
Stealth grants you a crucial advantage getting close to your target undetected and pickpocket them from behind. Sneaking up on an unsuspecting character, gives you the upper hand when it comes to stealing for credits, materials and key items, all of which are critical components of some quests.

Sneak Attack Deals More Damage
Through meticulously executed stealthy sneak attacks, you can deal twice the damage to unsuspecting targets. This tactical edge enables you to uphold the element of surprise, guaranteeing that your attacks are not only precise but also devastating, thereby rendering your enemies vulnerable and placing them at a considerable disadvantage.
Use The Environment To Your Advantage
Use your surroundings wisely and being able to adapt to different situations. This means not only recognizing hiding spots but also knowing when to blend into the shadows, scale a wall, or slip behind cover is crucial for remaining hidden.
Carrying a heavy load not only slows you down but can also lead to unnecessary footstep noise that jeopardize your covert operations. A light load ensures that you move silently, reducing the risk of detection.
