you also have to add in the factor of the blood trail leading to murder victim. You have to cover that up too, or make sure it's not in the clear path of one of the other guards.

It's still a great game, and there are ways to get around it. It does get annoying though when you shoot a crate with an animal in it with a silenced sniper and they all automatically know exactly what bush you're in half a mile away from the outpost.
Well I can tell you I'm definitely not doing stealth wrong. The game just isn't made as stealth friendly as everyone who blindly defends it believes it to be. This game's stealth mechanic is definitely one of it's biggest weak points.
I did some testing. I tried to shoot the animal cage without being detected.
where are you shooting the cages from? If its from right next to / near a guy then yeah they probably heard the shot even over the suppressor. If its from up on a hill with a silenced sniper rifle then yeah thats a bug.
HK-47: Can I break his neck now master? It's been a long time fantasy of mine. You: Maybe later..
HK-47: Did you hear that meatbag? "I'LL BE BACK!"
I am pretty sure they didn't spot me, and I was awarded only 550XP with a no alarms bonus.
If the white enemy alert bar fills at any time,even during a takedown then you won't get undetected bonus.
I never have any problem's with hiding bodies or shooting animal cages. Very few bodies get discovered if hidden well, and if caught, it's usually down to me.
Shooting cages work a treat every time, and I usually think about my vantage point.
Either people have bugged copies of the game, or they are doing something wrong, as the stealth in this works fine for me.
