1: Change your appearance, and associate it with your party locations.

A ghillie is the best example for anything in nature. If you don't have the budget to get one, stay tuned, we'll show you how to make your own ghillie one day. For those who don't know what a ghillie is, here is the definition that seems the most accurate to us:

Ghillie suit (or simply ghillie): it is the camouflage uniform of snipers. It consists of a base of camouflage net on which natural or synthetic vegetation is added. But if you know, the super-cap that Harry Potter uses to make him invisible. It's the same except for two or three details.

2: Camouflage your line.

For this second step, nothing could be simpler. Use synthetic netting or camouflage tape.

Preferably green, which you will apply on your replica, at best, matching your ghillie. Now we move on to step 3.

3: Make up your face.

Simple like the previous one. The goal of this practice is to reproduce reality as well as possible. So don't stick your head on the ground or against a bramble bush to hide your face. Instead, bring a military make-up pad. You also don't need to follow EnjoyPhoenix tutorials to apply your makeup.

Each army having each a different camouflage, in certain operations, use this method to reproduce the same one on their head.

4: Use an ambient environment.

Indeed, it is easier to hide there, to increase your chances and those of your team. You must act quickly and efficiently. Something associated with your outfit. (Camouflage depending on location.)

Example: forest, bush, pile of leaves..

5: Learn to be silent.

In the latter case, you must reproduce at an advanced level more advanced techniques of soldiers to be incognito. It will also help you to be more observant.

Use your hand gestures to communicate on the go. The less noise you make, the better. If you can, stay put. You have surely understood, to be a leaf you literally have to make the leaf.
