The Motion Sensor can be avoided by:
- Remaining still, crawling while prone, or crouch-walking
- Purchasing the Improved Stealth skill (sprinting with L3 will still be detected)
- Being under the cover of the OIC area buff
- Using a Sensor Jammer
Tip: This is a great gear item if you’re sneaking around behind enemy lines with a suppressed weapon – you can see the enemy before they see you!
From the Official MAG BlogEdit
The Motion Sensor detects nearby enemy movement and displays the data on the mini-map and CNI. It does not detect non-moving (or dead) enemies.
What are its effects?
The Motion Sensor will detect any moving character within an approximately 40 meter radius. However, enemies must be moving faster than a “crouch-walk, as the sensor won’t detect crouched or crawling enemies.
Is it stackable with other Skills?
Do you have to activate it for it to work?
No. The Motion Sensor is a passive gear item and only needs to remain in your Loadout inventory to work. It can’t be turned on or off.
- If an enemy character has the “Improved Stealth” ability from the Athleticism tree, they will be able to fool the Motion Sensor if they do not sprint.
