Loot chest[]

Swift Sneak can be obtained only from loot chests in ancient cities. The chests can contain enchanted books with any level of Swift Sneak (up to 3).



Swift Sneak increases the player's speed while crouching by 15% per level. At Swift Sneak level 3, the player's crouch speed equals 75% of their normal walking speed.

Swift Sneak 4 and 5 can further improve crouching speed, but the crouching speed can never be faster than the player's walking speed. Level 4 and 5 enchantment is only obtainable via the use of commands.

This enchantment also increases the player's movement speed while they are crawling.
