Favourite Predator Weapon?
« on: Jan 27, 2007, 05:48:43 PM »
What's your favorite Predator weapon? (from the movies Predator, Predator 2 and AVP)
Personally it's quite hard for me to choose between the Wristblades and the Combistick.
The Wristblades are awesome, but I really liked how the Predator owned the guys in the meat locker with his Combistick.

Erm...erm...oh my God! There's just too many chooses! I'd like it'd be a tie between Spear, Wrist Blades and Shoulder Cannon.

Shoulder Cannon, as always. I also liked the wrist gun in Predator 2.

I think Id have to go with wrist blades, preds gettin up close and personal with their kills is always fun to see.

I have to say a mix between the Speargun or the PlasmaCaster, and in second the CombiStick.

It's wierd we never actually saw the speargun. I haven't gotten the new P2SE yet, does it mention the speargun anywhere on that?

I have to check, I do have it but they only show the projectile not the actual gun. I suppose we can say it came from his wristbands, but I think the hunter only uses that weapon in that scene.

Though I like the gun from AVP2, the Yautja or Hish example of the sniper rifle.

I'm rather fond of the wrist blades, though the self destruct devise is pretty nice.  ;D

Personally I hate the shuriken... Its just a rip off of the disk. It basicaly does the same thing but it doesnt look as cool!

I didn't know there was so much Shuriken hate.  As for those of you calling it a "rip off" of the disc, I have to disagree.  Shurikens have been used by the Japanese as a concealed weapon since like .. forever.

I thought the Predator's shuriken was awesome especially the little flip/flick thing he did with his wrist.

The disc vs. shuriken debate is pretty much a matter of preference.  They both accomplished the same task (cutting/slicing through something).  It just seems like the shuriken was more practical because it is lighter, smaller, and collapses.
