The Hunter Cloaking Device is the default cloak ability for the Infiltrator class. While active the cloak makes the infiltrator nearly invisible to enemies, but the user cannot use weapons or tools while cloaked. This cloak lasts for twelve seconds. Additional levels of certification increase the regeneration rate of the cloak; the ability's duration whilst active is not affected.
How effective the cloak is at keeping the user invisible is dependent on what action the user is performing. Whilst sprinting the cloak is at it's least effective, rendering the cloak almost useless in close to medium ranges. Whilst walking and moving whilst crouched the cloak becomes less visible, however the user will still usually be seen in close quarters. Whilst crouched and not moving the user enters "Deep cloak" where their cloak is at it's most effective, in this mode the cloak makes the infiltrator almost completely invisible, often this is enough for the user to simply crouch in a field as hostile soldiers obliviously run past them and, when timed correctly, is a useful tool for infiltrators looking to ambush their opponents and take minimal damage.
"Allows the infiltrator to cloak for a short period of time. Movement reduces effectiveness of cloak."
