Does sneaking hide your dot from the minimap?  What does sneaking do?  What does stealth do?  Please tell me it does something.

It still works on npc's so missions, future heist , running from cops and so on.

Not too sure but I think in deathmatch when you run you appear as a red dot on the enemy mini map. Can't really confirm as I've only done one deathmatch but it says something about the enemy making sound and they show as a red dot.

If the host sets blips off then you appear on the radar when moving, I assume a higher skill stat allows faster movement without alerting enemies.

After playing a bit last night and doing about 10 TDM I felt like it was the same as Max Payne 3. Everytime you ran you showed up on the radar... as soon as i casually walked/jogging. I was taking people out who didnt even see me coming. I don't actually know if it works that way. It just felt like it.

You only show on map when running.
Stealth I think keeps you quiet.

Stealth hides you from the minimap in PVP events
and sometimes in free roam if a player doesn't see you.
higher stealth the longer you can "stealth-run" without breaking out into a sprint and the quieter you are physically 
also helps againt's A.I of course.

Stealth on here sucks ass, they should have a stealth stat for npcs, and if your in stealth and move slowly for pcs, your blip doesnt show, and there NEEDS TO BE A CROUCH.

You need it for sneaking past the cops to get your car from the pound without getting shot. Of course no one has been online long enough to get a high enough stealth stat to be able to do that successfully I guess.

The point of stealth in GTA Online is hiding in deathmatches and such.

100% Stealth is lovely for a nice assassination.

Stealth should work in free roam like it does in deathmatches imo.

The more stealth skill the faster you can move while in stealth mode. Stealth mode is good for deathmatches and competitive missions such as hippy hunting as when in it you are not on radar unless someone calls Lester to reveal all players. Stealth mode + silenced weapons = doing work.

you can run faster with 100% stat when stealth, if you use it properly, you will not appear on radar in DM or TDM.  In missions you can get the jump on npcs, it's valuable, to max it for the impatient, go into stealth mode, put rubber band on controller to walk in circle, come back in an hour, max stat.

got me, I really hate stealth as pressing on that thumb pad only slows you down.  Online, in free roam you gotta be totally mobile.  I'd love to be able to reassign that thumb stick button to something much more relevant to the "PVP" aspect of GTA V Online.
