I read somewhere, I think in a loading screen tip, that the weight of your armour negatively affects your stealth when sneaking. How much does it affect it? I'm playing a stealthy sniper type character, and I'm trying to figure out whether I'm okay to use the heavier armour I'm finding, or whether I should switch back to some lighter armour.

    It's similar, but it doesn't say how much. I'm trying to figure out how much of a trade-off I would be making by switching to a heavier armour.

    Even so the questions are asking exactly the same thing and the answer of "how much" should be covered in the original question rather than having two near identical questions that answer the same thing, with one having slightly more information

  • @kalina These seem like different questions. One asks how, and the answer is heavier makes it harder, the other asks how much. That's a different answer, as it would need quantities. The accepted answer to the other question would not be an answer to this one. It would certainly be nice if the other question had also asked how much, but it didn't. The answer to that question, that it makes it harder, is already a given in this question.

  • @DCShannon It's a bit of a grey area, but I think kalina is right. While semantically they are different questions, for the purposes of this site they're the same question, or at least they should be.

  • @kalina So you're saying they should ask the other person to change their question?
