It is all quite situational. Are they looking for me and all know what I look like, rough description, just a person in an area, simple security setup, do they have weapons (I can run very fast and hit very hard, can't outrun a bullet and my kicks have rather less range than most bullets), do they have night vision/thermal vision, do they possess training and the discipline to use it? Is this a containment/line of men scenario or just one person I might be able to go the long way around for?
Do I know the area?
Am I allowed misdirection? Sneak somewhere the other side of wherever (possibly not close enough), set off a large bomb/general distraction after having moved to somewhere else. While things are distracted, reinforcements dispatched and otherwise people reduced then yeah.
How long are they around? I am quite content to fall asleep in a wall or floorboards if this is more of a "I just need to wait for the search of the area to happen".
I am not inclined to underestimate blending in with a crowd either, and can often do a disguise quite quickly in many urban scenarios.
I can crawl along through muck, small depressions in the ground wearing local foliage if I have to. Quite slow going though and you tend to want to wander in prepared if playing that one and sadly I don't own a ghillie suit.
Being clad head to toe in black is... most of my clothes. Granted black is not necessarily the best option for many things. To that end I can move slowly and with an eye to sight lines, patrol routes and sound if it is necessary.
Going where people don't expect or want to go is a good plan. Hard to get to, disgusting, full of prickly things... I would note I am reasonably proficient at climbing as well.
Is this a social engineering situation? Why ninja through a building if I can walk up to the front desk, claim to be IT and get given an all areas badge?
Drop a PS5, then walk by as the crowd forms.
Not taking any fancy ideas of invisibility in account… I would say it depends on the situation
* Wait for them to be distracted – or have a helper cause a distraction (doesn't have to be as expensive as using a PS5)
* If somebody looks especially for you: A good disguise
* Go another way
* Do not dress with things in fluorescent colors
It is certainly easier to hide in a crowd (difficult with all the distance rules) or inside a jungle than completely alone on the grassland.¹
¹ Under some circumstances this is not true: When I jog through the forest and return using open ways with only grass around and free sight for a kilometer, there is a fair chance a dog will notice me and run towards me. The dog owner on the other side, after being reminded that dogs have to be put on a leash whenever another person comes in sight, will inevitably answer: "I didn't see you."
Know secret passages
Creating a diversion. If people are looking at the burning building across the street, they won't bother noticing you slipping by.
Murdering them with stealth, and walking by their corpse. (Metal Gear Solid taught me this)
I'm with JaapDaniels on this. Camo, as in Snake of Metal Gear Solid. Or any of the Socom FTB's.. Otherwise. do the Stealthyness of Splinter Cell.
Hiding in plain sight is the most common-sense approach.
Depending where you are in the Digital or Physical World, it might be as easy as dropping a KONAMI Cardboard Box over yourself or as hard as growing a beard and getting a deep tan.
This is why most infiltration operations you hear about take months to prepare, if not years.
Also why sometimes the best infiltrator is a local asset.
Personally, I stand out too much to blend in.
Short of mastering some mystical Ninjutsu, I would definitely leave infiltration to another member of my team.
I snuck past everyone on the Temp
I'm gonna go with a cardboard box :)
While FAST6191 gets the win here, what I will say is that none of you ever came up with the genius that is having Batman pulling out a boombox and playing salsa music in the hopes of getting guards so distracted that they'd start dancing to where Batman could just sneak past them.
