Predator: Hunting Grounds features an elite team of human soldiers who have to complete various objectives while being hunted by a Predator, an alien killing machine that hides in the shadows and is intent on adding their skulls to its trophy room. Both the humans and Predators have different classes which determine what kind of role your character plays in the battlefield, their strengths and weaknesses in certain situations. Check out our Classes guide to find out everything you need to know about them.
In Predator: Hunting Grounds there are four human classes and three Predator classes. These are as follows:
The Hunter class is the most versatile of the Predator classes having both agility and high-damage. It is in the median with strength, health, speed, stamina and recovery, and overall melee power. The Plasma Caster will help you take down targets from long-range, the wrist blades will allow you to easily take down enemies in close-range combat and the Infrared Vision will let you stalk enemies while you hide behind cover and remain unseen.
The Scout class is extremely fast and agile, adept with ranged weaponry and has the ability to pounce and jump farther than other Predator classes. Their downside is they have low health and damage resistance which is a disadvantage with up close melee weapons and cannot carry as much gear as other Predator classes. This class suits a player who prefers to snipe enemies from long-range, while hiding behind cover.
The Berserker is the tank of the Predators. This class is the largest of the Predators and will give you towering strength and damage resistance. It also does the strongest melee weapon damage and has significant energy reseves. This though comes at the cost of slower movement and energy recharge rate, sluggish stamina, and a less-lengthy pounce.
Assault is the default class for humans and it has overall well-balanced stats. Its main purpose is to be ahead of the rest of the squad and handle the combat objectives to progress the mission. If you are new to the game and not familiar with the mechanics and gameplay it is recommended that you select the Assault class.
This class of human is for players whose style of play revolves around agility and being able to sprint around the map. The Scout class is all about finding the perfect spot to snipe the opponents. Only engage the enemy up close when you absolutely need to.
This class is the tank of the team and has a ton of health and damage resistance. The role of the Support class is to stay upfront and take the bulk of enemy damage and protects the team who is behind you from it. The Support class becomes unlocked when you reach level 35.
On release of the game the Recon class was locked and not much info is known. It is rumoured that this class will have increased mud cover duration rendering your character's heat signature invisible to the Predator for longer.
