How come when you snipe mobs from range and behind cover all the other NPC's know where you are and come running str8 for you?

Surely they shouldn't know where you are till they actually see you.

Well, if you have radar, it seems fair that they would too. :)
Now, the seemingly mindless mutants with cleavers having radar... that might be stretching it.

I thought my radar was part of my EGO. Most enemies don't have EGO I think...

My sniper rifle appears to show a rather clear tracer pointing right to me... I figure that would be why.

Sound? Makes sense for the mindless mutants...

Ahh didn't realise there was tracer coming from Rifle. Just was wondering how the enemys knew exactly where to run after you start popping them. Understand now.

all mutants fear the red beam of death, also it works for you as well kinda helps to spot the extremely powerful dark matter snipers camping in buildings 2-shotting you.

and if no one is looking in your direction how do you explain it?

If you stand in the open and fire at a enemy, they will notice you. If you fire at a enemy while there are other enemies near the one you are firing at, they will notice you. The 1 thing I found that makes you undetectable to enemies is fire from cover. Go behind cover, go out of cover, pop a shot, go back into cover.

The laser from aiming, the smoke trail when you shoot (only lasts for a second hut still there...) and possibly the loud shots and their friends head exploding?

Once Npcs notice you, you are on their radar. You can use cloak and hide in another place, even in bulidng, far from NPCs, and when you de-cloak, they will know where you are (and they shouldn't). You don't have to shot, move or do anything, you will be spotted anyway.

I believe Trion intended us to use Cloak EGO power to Sniper effectively.

Nope, tried it and they still come for you without Cloak on.

Do you guys realise that if you snipe from a tower, they'll converge below you. But the moment you cloak and run away from the tower to another location, the mob will still follow you EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE CLOAKED.

So I think these dudes are programmed to know exactly where you are at any time. So such thing as Field of View, Sound Detection, etc
