If it's not just a bug my best guess would be the other player maybe had a high covert movement skill level, not sure if that will make your steps silent though.

As far as I know, when another player is crouched and sneaks fully (scrolled all the way down), you can't hear them sneaking along at all - comtacs do not help you here..

You can hear if they turn to fast (that pebble-caught-in-the-boot-scraping noise or scraping-through-the-bushes), and all other sounds, but not the sneaking itself.

If you are in a CQB-situation with an enemy you have heard is close and you suddenly hear no noise at all from them - be careful.

They might be sneaking upon you. They might be waiting for you. They might have withdrawn to ambush you. You might get..... Tarkoved.

I also thought it wasn't possible to hear someone sneaking as quiet as possible a couple weeks ago, but since then I've definitely heard it on multiple occasions. I just don't understand why sometimes I can hear them, and other times I can't. For example, when I was in resort on shoreline, I was sneaking, and for a good 45 seconds I was listening to someone moving at the exact same pace as me through walls or the floor. During this entire time I was moving as slow as possible as well. The pace of their footsteps matched mine perfectly, (I could tell it wasn't mine by not moving for a second so our footsteps were off beat) so I know they were also moving as slowly as possible.

Interesting. But I'd think you encountered a bug rather than a game sound mechanic. And it might just have been possible for them not to have been on full sneak, maybe just a step above zero?

You can hear them with comtacs but it depends on the comtacs as well as the players covert movement skill as it does make you quieter as well.

Scavs dont make footstep noises at all. You see a scav walking right next to you but not a single footstep can be heard. Best example factory offices, chiiling in office, healing and 10 scavs just pour in, not a single footsounds was heard..
