i´ve seen the videos of the guide section about step count, and i don´t get it, what´s the purpose to do that?

I assume this refers to sections of the run in which you go out of bounds and can't physically see where you're going, especially on Extreme where the radar isn't present. In this situation, listening to the number of steps Snake is taking is the best way to gauge your position.

Depending on the area, you can also listen to a precise audio cue from the background. For example, on the Caves I listen to a precise wolf howl.
