Hi guys. I'm a bit confused about the Sixth Sense skill. So it say that the light goes one when you are spotted by the enemy. I had two instances when the light went off after I got shot at close range. Both of the ocasions were in my E-75. One with an EBR that was hiding in the bushes at aprox 200 meters away on Cliff, and a second time happened right now of Ghost town when an IS3 shot me behind the corner. Both times I got shot first and then the light went on. Am I missing something here? Shouldn't the light go on as soon as you are spotted? Thank you.

This, and there's a directive to shorten this by 1s.

... only if you have SS fully trained, then this directive will shorten the time.

Thank you all. That made things clear. I had the impression that the light should go off a soon as you are spotted. Thank you all.

That's what the "This, and" were there to indicate.

Also, just because your sixth sense indicator has gone off does not mean you are not still spotted by someone which would mean the next time you peek you would get hit with no warning.

 

Always make sure you definitely pull into cover where you can't be seen and give yourself time to re-stealth.

An easy way not to get spotted in first place is:

Also, note that the light will only go on if you go from unspotted -> spotted. It won't go on if you were spotted earlier and have been spotted the whole time.

 

So if you're spotted, then some time passes, then someone else spots you *without you becoming unspotted* the light won't go on the second time.
