The best way to fight it is to throw rocks at it to piss it off, then run back to your squad of 12 marines.

You could always do what our squad did one time when the SL saw a pred shortly after deploying. Chase it down with more than half a dozen marines in tow, eventually surrounding it in a hail of bullets until it exploded and killed at least 3 people and crippled the rest.
James "Car" Irving: You don't need to be the best to be a hero. You don't even need to be smart. Being a hero comes from the heart. That, and a pack full of napthal and hand grenades.
Edward Roth: The promotion and transfer to Military Police was great on paper. The living hell of keeping a ship full of trained killers running smoothly wasn't on that paper.
Mary Adams: She didn't want to be here, but how else could she get to finish medschool? And who the hell else is gonna know the difference between Tricord and Kelotane?
Zack Zimmer: Half metal, all Marine, loaded for bear. Could probably kill bears. Have you seen any bears near Zimmer? Exactly.
Xenos killed with a welding tool: 1
Times blown up self or others with grenades: Lost count.

Was that Delta Squad?
You will never be as bad as the baldie who picked up a tactical shotgun while a hunter was pouncing on top of a CMO for 4 seconds, with his only response being to pace around before being decap'd by said hunter. You are not Brett Kimple, and you never will be. You are not the reason why I regular MP.

Yes... my lungs were fucked for 30 minutes and I had to request medivac, and the SL was gibbed.

I hope everyone in the squad learned a lesson from that.

I prefer to use soap and buckshot against preds. Occasionally the machete.

A marine would NEVER lay on the ground by himself when facing a predator.
Seriously...

They are visibly dangerous at the first sight.
Not because of the weapons and "hunter trophies" in their gear - that in some cases are quite inconspicuous (some predators only carry retractable weapons and no trophies at all).

And the gear itself isn't actually easy to properly identify as being of alien origin or particularly dangerous.

In some cases, if not too close, the predator may look like just "a large person in salvaged pieces of armor, with improvised clothes and a weird mask".

But the main reason why they would be always perceived as a possible threat?
Is because they are much larger than a typical human and are in a place that had sent a distress call some time ago.

And, a second reason for them to look dangerous?

The predator's skin - when closely examined - look at least "very weird"...
The texture doesn't look normal.
And the dark spots all over it stand out.

If the marine still thinks the predator is "a large human in weird armor"....
....this detail will make at least some think that they are humans carrying some sort of disease, that got contaminated by something (radiation burns maybe) or even that they got altered in some way (steroids, genetics, who knows...).

Still, the size stands out as the main element for the predators to be easily perceived as dangerous.

I highly recommend backing away before the Pred explodes or you and your medic are going to have a bad time.
Troublesome, as usual.

Whenever I see a Pred, I have flashbacks to how awesome it was for Preds to slaughter marines in the AvP games. Then I think, "it'd be cool if i wuz like those muhreens xdxdxdxdxdxddxddddddxddxxxxxxxx" and shoot at it. That might just be me, though.
