How do you perform hold ups? The manual says to hold your enemy at gunpoint at close range before the enemy spots you. I've tried sneaking up on enemies while their backs are turned and aiming my gun at them, but they usually just turn around, spot me, and attack me. What am I doing wrong?

Press L1 and aim at them when you are close enough

then, if you want get in front of them and press triangle then press triangle everytime you see the triangle symbol come up and u can get items. (the last triangle knocks him out by squeezing his, cough!)

You have to sneak up to them, or stay in one spot, let them come to you and hold them up(By aiming L1).

Don't go into first person aim. Also if your running to them and they hear a noise thats not sneaking up on them. They have to be completely unaware of anything being there. Then you hold L1 and snake will say something like freeze.
