    As shown in this linked video clip, regardless of the walk speed I have in the settings (right now it's set to 9 or 10 I believe), when Eivor's hood is up, they slow down to a snail's pace. In the video example, it takes about half as long for Eivor to walk up and down the small incline without the hood up. Is this intentional? Is anyone else experiencing this? It makes traversing cities feel agonizingly slow.

    The walk speed setting from the menu doesn't seem to affect the walk speed for when you pull up your cloak/disguise. I am stuck with walking at the slowest rate and it is making it annoying and I am not sure how it will affect me going forward. From the videos I've seen, the walking is supposed to work like the normal walk (aka with controller it is dependent on how far you push the stick controller) - being on PC with mouse and keyboard, it's dependent on the menu setting.

    Would be nice if the walk speed with affect both normal and disguised walks (which I'm sure it is supposed to).

    @revenantsp1 A note to add, I just did a bit where I needed to be disguised and almost got caught by a patrol because I was walking too slow to move into a smart position. I would have been caught if I hadn't reach my objective at that very moment (the cutscene interrupted the combat).

    Haven't seen anyone else mention this. You can change the walk speed for regular walking and it works jsut fine but when you put on a disguise the walk speed seems to be the slowest it can possibly be.

    I am playing on PC, so this likely doesn't apply to consoles. When I am uncloaked I walk fine, and in fact PC allows you to control walk speed in settings. However, when I put my hood up and attempt to walk I walk prohibitively slow. I don't mean that hyperbolically, I literally can't blend in. I walk by guards so slow they recognize me, and villagers are significantly faster than me so I cannot blend in with crowds. Is this a bug? Intentional? It makes social stealth impossible.

    On PC with keyboard and mouse, Eivor's walking speed drops to the lowest speed setting when putting on disguise. Is this intentional? Can we please let Eivor walk just as fast as how we set the walking speed to be in the options menu, even when using disguise? Otherwise KB/M users have to decide between either snail pace walking or running around all the time in areas requiring disguise.

    Hey there! Are you using a controller or keyboard/mouse? You should be able to walk at any speed you desire while cloaked. I'm playing on PC and using an Xbox controller, and it seems to be working normally.

    @kissybyc Yes please! Noticed this too. It's not functional atm

    Please make the walking speed while hiding a bit faster and scale on the walking speed option (or make another option for that) when using keyboard.

    Actually it seems to be fixed at really low speed.

    @howdyprincezote We're having issues accessing the video you linked to. Can you upload it to youtube and drop us a link?

    @howdyprincezote this also happens to me, i assumed it was intentional but it is horrifically annoying. i end up having to alternate between running and walking for a second to stop detection as i simply do not have the patience to spend a year walking through citites.

    i don't have the means to record but it is simply that - your walking speed with hood up is drastically reduced and is unaffected by the "walking speed" setting.

    @chaosandcoffee Not intended - if you play with a controller the speed adjusts as with normal walking (from the videos I've seen). It's an oversight.

    @ubi-spud I and it seems a lot of other mouse and keyboard players are experiencing the same issue, when you toggle/hold the walk key with cloak/disguise on it defaults to the slowest walking speed no matter what speed is set in the options menu.

    oh wow, okay. well - at least we should hopefully get a fix soon then. would appreciate if this could be reported to someone who can actually fix it. @Ubi-Ginge it should be easy to see without a video, even, just try walking with and without a hood. (on pc, without controller)

    I second this. Hiding is extremely and annoyingly slow.

    Heyo. Im not sure if theres any news regarding an upcoming quick little patch
    But i would love to see this fixed *before* being halfway through the game.

    On PC using your cloak to disguise is absolutely not usable. You walk around waaaay too slow, to the point when someone starts noticing you you feel caged and helpless and have to run away so you dont get spotted. Its really ruining an otherwise great feature id love to use more!

    @ubi-ginge

    hi there, i got my recording software to work for reporting another bug so i thought i may as well show this one as well. here you go. as you can see she's SO much slower with hood up, i have my walking speed maxed out, too. this makes walking around distrusted areas really difficult as you have to alternate between running and walking if you want to get anywhere.

    I agree that the walking speed while cloaked is way too slow. Ubisoft, can you please fix this? A snail moves faster than the character while cloaked. (On PC using mouse and keyboard).
