This is absurd metagaming, to abuse the predators honor code.

I'm astonished its even suggested.

I'm pretty sure a predator wouldn't hunt the mentally unfit.
So, act like Christian Weston Chandler?

I dunno, I think a Predator might make an exception there.

Ez solution: preds look like big angry spess bears, what do you do when you have a run in with a spess bear? Climb a tree, this doesn't work in 2d spessmen though, so your stuck with option D, play dead and wait for it to move along. Spess bears are a serious threat people, you should know how to deal with them.

Nope. Stab yourself with a crystal on the run, create a blood trail into a clearing, drop your weapon, and stab them in the neck when they pick it up. Or, bonus points, take their gun and smack them with it. Repeatedly.

Personally my character reacts to predators with slight friendliness, She tends to instantly cast them as predators in the more literal sense, Generally hunting aliens (Because how often are the marines really winning hard enough to get pred'd on?) and is often quick to point out that 'Hey dumbfucks, it only started murdering you after you tried to murder it.' She will kill them if forced to, And has several times greatly wounded one due to it being obviously hostile towards her.
Favorite form of interaction with predators: Dunking them in the face with a basketball while they are cloaked.
Second favorite form of interaction: Barrel charger buckshot point-blank when they won't stop fucking with my goddamn claymores I can only ask RO for so many explosive crates REEEEE

1. Disarm the pred and knock him out with his own weapon

2. Keep stabbing his head to make sure he's unconscious

3. Get your buddy to stranglehold the Pred into submission

2 people using incendiary shells is enough to kill any pred. Pred armor won't protect them from being set on fire.

That's because the preds are here to take you on a magical space adventure, not rip out your spine and wear it as a hat.

Oh yeah I've encountered predators as a survivor and spent that whole round with them. Was a good experience.

I kidnap weak prey and fight strong. Sometimes I kidnap strong prey too if I manage to get them in a position where I'd be capable of moving them efficiently
I'm stressing way too hard about what to put here, so I'm just gonna leave it blank.... or....

I've only fought about 4 preds directly before, but they are a lot harder to kill when they cloak and use ranged weapons on a group of about 4-5 marines. I get that some preds prefer to do a stalking form of attack, but I'd much prefer at least one or two preds getting really in-your-face in a fight on a consistent basis.

Half the time the preds just walk right up to you and start trying to have an intense discussion on socio-economic issues rather than... i dunno HUNTING the deadly Xenos, or the tough marines? I get that some preds like to RP with the jarheads, as they are the only other group you can RP with, but half the time when the preds decide to RP over doing population control, then the marines have an unfair advantage (especially when one of them challenges me, who is an SL most of the time, and I agree on the condition that they help us win).

Usually they attack my squad when we build FOB, so I have my guys retreat to just outside of FOB, and when pred eventually decloaks to have an "honorable duel", The sentry guns light him up like a christmas tree. Usually they leave after bleeding all over my nice, clean, barricades, and then they show up later with tons of healing-wounds from xenos, so everyone with AP and slugs lay-into em before they either leave or die in the grass.

The only true way to fight a pred is using a belts worth of throwing knives and throwing them back and forth at eachother.
