Has this happened to anyone else: I was on the ledge above the torture room. and i whistled so the guards would both come out. I was in complete darkness according to my stealth meter. I whistled again and they were about 15 feet away. and one of the guards pulls out his pistol and puts 2 bullets in me then he puts his pistol back and keeps walking up the hill towards me... same with the guard that goes near the stairs when u kill the first generator. They seem to know exactly where you are even when ur in complete darkness and its kinda annoying me.

Lucky shots .. I've had similar things happen in similar situations and they missed. Sort of like they're firing caution rounds in the area the noise came from.

But he said the guys were roughly 15 feet from him, which isn't right up in their face http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

I noticed what they do is if you make enough noise they'll fire in the general direction that the sound came from as caution. That's part of the improvement in the AI instead of just walking right into the darkness like the goofy PT's AI. They just made a couple of good shots on you is all Silent Killa.

sometimes when you have too much attention they get scared and fire a few rounds into where the noise is coming from...sometimes they hit you...sometimes they miss completely(you could whistle then move so the go where you want, gives you opportunity to circle and grab)

ok i get it i guess but another thing that kinda bugs me. If you fire a shot at a light how does the guard that is like 30 feet away know exactly where the shot came from and can pinpoint where u are and shoot at u perfectly. Even if u run away like 5 feet they still know where u are even in the dark.

If you are in the dark, any muzzle flash from your weapon that escapes the silencer/suppressor (not sure if the suppressor reduces muzzle flash?) is obvious to the enemy.

Yeah, there is muzzle flash from the gun, even with suppressor, but not as much as with an unsuppresed gun.

EXACTLY. i tried this once. in the room with the barrels, i jumped on the horizontal pole and saved. i whistled a couple of times, didnt move, and then he shot me. i wondered 'what if...' so i loaded, came back to that save, whistled on the right side of the pole and hustled over to the left, and then he shot the right side - where i whistled from. awesome ai in my opinion.
