Here's a tip when playing as
the pred at A Lesser Fate against marines:
Go down into the water filled tunnel, destroy the smartgun & flick the power
switch to knock out the lights. Hopefully they'll hear the lights go down &
realise where you are, or just come down for the smartgun. After you've
flicked the switch jump up onto the pipes & recloak [the water will have
disabled your cloak.] Then wait for them to come to you (you won't show up
on their motion tracker if you keep still). When they get close bag 'em with
the net gun, then slice & dice 'em ;)
Don't run round cloaked with
the shoulder cannon selected. Your laser can still be seen when cloaked so
have another weapon selected until you have the marine in your sights. Then
select the shoulder cannon & fire!
Turn away from the marine
when you select the shoulder cannon so they don't see it's laser until it's
too late ;)
Practice the super jump! You
can jump up onto the the lights that stick out of the walls with a bit of
practice [you don't just have to use the ladder & ramp to get up onto the
To jump onto the light run forwards looking straight ahead [not up] & when
the light gets the top of the screen [as in the pic below] do the super jump
[crouch & jump.] You'll land on top of the light.
Once you can get onto the light wait a second & super jump
again up to the top of the level or wait for marines to pass by & pick them
To get across to middle [in the pic] jump down & get onto
the step where the pred's sights are. Then press forward, crouch & jump to
A good place to
recharge the energy sift device is down in the water filler tunnel where you
can't be seen.
Setup a key on your keyboard for the wristblades or spear that's
handy to reach, so that when you've netted someone you can press the key to
select the wristblades or spear to finish 'em off.
To kick a player in multiplayer press the talk [type] key, then type

player you want to kick.]

Don't use disc far away, it's easy to jump out of the way. Get near them and
then use disc.
[These tips by DinoMike]
As a Predator vs. Alien use a disc on the Predalien, they are a little
tougher then the Runner or Drone.
Use the plasmacaster on the Drone and Runner, they are a little faster the
Predalien or Praetorian, and always use full charge.
Strafe when fighting them, press the right mouse, the lett rip.
I don't recommend use any tracking weapons on the Praetorian, It doesn't
wall walk or pounce and runs pretty slow. I'd use the Predpistol, first
stunning it with the Alt fire, then firing normal shots to kill it [it only
takes two or three].
For a Queen, well everybody knows this method, stun her with the Predpistol,
then use remote bombs.
As a Predator vs. human... well there are too many ways to kill a human so
let me tell you my fave [unless he or she pisses me off then I just use disc
or if I'm really mad I just kick 'em].
Netgun them then use remote bombs. First press (after you get them) Z or Q
and go to the remote bombs then press Z just once and get the Netgun and
find your self a human. After you net him or her press X to go back to the
remote bombs, step back, and BOOM! They explode on contact and kill
instantly, press 1 to get out your wristblades, get your skull and let out a
