Player Notes Edit

  • Although most players ditch this gun as soon as they get an M-6 Carnifex or an M-5 Phalanx, the Predator can be a very effective gun, even on Silver. A solid fire rate, fast reload speed, and good stability can lead to a rapid succession of headshots.
  • Higher damage and lower kickback than most SMGs can also make it a better secondary weapon for snipers.
  • When paired with the Pistol Piercing Mod, the Predator becomes very effective at taking down Guardians at close range, with only 7 headshots required on Bronze. This is very useful for low level players who cannot carry a heavier weapon nor use their powers to damage them to defeat them easily.
