Cheats, Tips and Strategy
Below is a collection of hints and tips that will help you to progress in the game. These include scouting and using Predcore. As well as these hints and tips we also have a mini-guide here which goes into more details on some of the tips we have below:
Never Engage a Full Squad
If you are playing the Predator you should never try to engage all four members of the Fireteam at the same time as doing will likely result in the alien's demise as the Fireteam has strong weapons. To successfully eliminate the Fire team it is essential that you try and hunt down the four members of the Fireteam one by one.

Try to separate Fireteam Members
The best tactic for taking down a Fireteam is to be patient and take them out one by one. Patiently wait for situations where a member of the squad is away from their team and then use the aliens stealth skills to sneak up and engage them using the Predators melee weapons to deal massive damage.

Stick to the Objective
If you are part of the Firetem it is essential that you stick with your team and focus on completing the objectives of the missions so you win the game. Unless your team have prepared for a fight to take down the Predator you should try and avoid contact with it.
Jumping from Tree to Tree
If you are playing the Predator your available path when climbing trees and jumping from branch to branch will be marked with a glowing red line. If a tree branch is not glowing red it is not usable, if it does glow red you can run and jump towards it.
The best way to scout if you are playing the Preditor is use the tallest tree in a given location so you are able to look at a large radius and determine where exactly the Fireteam is located. Use the Predators thermal version if you are still struggling to pin down the squad.
If you are playing the Predator make sure you use Predcore when stalking the Fireteam as this ability will enable you to easily determine the location of each member of the Fireteam. Mastering the art of Predcore will drastically increase a Predator's hunting capabilities.
