Predator: Hunting Grounds Beginner’s Tips and Tricks

Take a look at how to win as a Fireteam in Predator: Hunting Grounds.

Get dirty with mud

Just like the movie, you can protect yourself from the Predator’s thermal vision by covering yourself in mud. It’s the best form of camouflage that you can consider in Predator: Hunting Grounds. Mud will protect you from the Predator, making your heat signature invisible to the Predator for some time.

Stay in a group

Being in a Fireteam, it is important that you don’t stray away from your group. Heading off on your own will not only put you in danger from AI soldiers but also makes it much easier for the Predator to kill you. On your own, you have no upper hand on the Predator so make sure to stay close to your squad at all times.

Don’t try to take on the Predator

No matter how powerful your Fireteam might seem, at the end of the day, it’s still the Predator. So, it’s best to simply fight off the AI enemies and just escape without trying to take on the Predator. Complete the objectives that the Fireteam gets and just get the hell out of there as fast as you can.

Level up with the tutorial

If you play the tutorial before starting the actual game, you will not only learn the ropes of Predator: Hunting Grounds, but also get 2 Free Field Lockers. You will also level up to Level 3 so that’s an advantage you will have before starting the online multiplayer mode.

Keep an eye on the leaves

One of the best tactics that the Predator will use in this game is moving through the trees. The Predator is stealthy and will be very tough to detect, but if you see leaves falling from trees, you will know that the Predator is close or even right above your location.

Heal yourself

In case you are overwhelmed while playing as the Predator, you can take a step back and heal. Then, you can come back to the battle when you have healed up, all set to kill off the Fireteam. Also note that you can use wildlife to heal yourself. Look for wild boars or pigs in the jungle and kill them. Once you go towards their dead bodies, you can eat them and regain your health.

Use heat signatures

Your main goal as the Predator is to locate the Fireteam and stop them from escaping. Use the Vision Mode to find the heat signatures of the Fireteam while they are distracted since they have to complete their own missions as well. You also need to use the Target Isolation ability which will help you spot your targets faster.

Be stealthy

Yes, as a Predator, you are incredibly powerful, but you aren’t invincible. If you jump into a battle where the Fireteam and the AI soldiers are fighting, the AI will turn to target you first. So what you need to do is make the most of distractions, wait for the Fireteam to be in trouble and attack when your opponents are most vulnerable. Use your invisibility to keep an eye on them whenever needed. Attacking all the members of the team at the same time will only give you heavy damage and they can even take you out entirely. Make sure to notice when the Fireteam members separate and attack at those moments. Use trees but not so much that it becomes too obvious. Decide when to attack from the ground level too.

Use your speed

High mobility is one of the best traits of a Predator so make the most of it. After you attack members of the Fireteam, run and escape before you get caught in their clutches. Your playing style, as a Predator, should involve quick attacks, escapes and high stealth. Fast decision-making will ensure your survival and provide a good hunting time in Predator: Hunting Grounds.
