Take a note from the Walking Dead’s Whisperer faction and be able to skin the dead and wear said skin? Probably with a high Survival skill would unlock the recipe.
Now obviously anything non-zed would be hostile, and zombie could even “notice” the skin walker if they get too close. The skin itself could be very delicate and tear/break with the slightest damage.
Imagine that, wearing the dead skin, skulking (no running or that’ll tip them off) across town, then encounter a Mi-Go and it smacks you around a bit, but you live. But your dead skin didn’t. Now the dead all turn heads at you in unison. “Fuck.”
Honestly I think it’d be more efficient just to wear a bush. Zombies don’t care about cars unless they can hear them, and they just attack noises, they aren’t after the car. If you hid in a bush, they can’t see you, and wouldn’t care about the bush at all. Provided you don’t make noise and they don’t smell you, you’re in the clear.
I’m really hoping for some kind of stealth system in the game - something where you can see enemies and they can’t see you, beyond abusing sight radius. I’d like to be able to creep through town instead of loitering at specific distances and sprinting between houses.
