I'm wondering what exactly the stealth kit in Titanfall does. Please don't just copy and paste the in-game text like every other site on the internet does, that isn't going to help me.
I'm asking the question because its functionality (like much of Titanfall) is kind of ambiguous in the in-game description. It says that it makes your footsteps silent; are they strictly referring to the game audio of footstep noise sent to other players? Will my steps when rodeoing an enemy titan (that thunk thunk sound) be silent? Does it mean that sprinting won't make me appear on the mini-map to other players (meaning that sprinting without the stealth kit would make me appear on the minimap)?
The internet is packed with people speculating about these things, but it seems like no one actually knows for sure (or maybe the people who do know just don't want to share the knowledge).
It seems like the only way to definitively answer these mechanics questions is to get a bunch of friends together (all on party chat) into a private match and rigorously test them. I would love to do this, but sadly only two of my xbox live friends jumped on the xbone bandwagon, and they don't have Titanfall for some inexplicable reason.
