  • Prior to the March 16, 2015 update, this trait applied the camouflage effect, which would break its invisibility effect as soon as the user moved. This caused an undesired behavior when the player was knocked down, launched, pushed back, or pulled, since these control effects force the player to move, resulting in an useless trait. The effect has been modified to allow moving without breaking stealth, although the in-game description still refers to the old functionality of the effect.
