I can see why bucket might not recgonize te monster sneaking right off the bat, but when you partially track him, then the monster sneaks, and you lose all your tracking progress.
What I propose is that if you’re tracking the monster and themonster decides to sneak, your progress pauses until the monster stands again. Unless you actually lose sight of the monster or your UAV is destroyed, the progress bar shouldn’t reset to 0.
Bucket- “MONSTER! RIGHT THERE!”
Bucket- “hurr durr, where’s he go? It couldn’t be that thing, it’s walking on all fours”
