AvP2 Primal Hunt Timeline

Posted by Darkness on January 24, 2010 (Updated: 01-Jun-2014)

Below, you’ll find a timeline for Aliens vs Predator 2: Primal Hunt which will help you to understand the storyline more easily. Each entry is in chronological order and I’ve put which mission, the event is from. Most dates, times and places are correct but in a couple of events, I either left the time as Unknown because it was impossible to tell or I made up the time to what I thought it would be.

Predator Mission 1
Date: November 25, 1730
Time: Unknown
Location: Somewhere on LV-1201
500 Years before the Incident, the Predator lands on Planet LV-1201 in his spacecraft to hunt Aliens. While wandering around on the surface of the planet, the Predator follows some Aliens to the hive and after a bit of exploring, he discovers a strange object. Soon enough the Predator learns of a strange Artifact built by these so-called Pilots which can control the Aliens. The Artifact is currently disabled when he gets to the Artifact Chamber so he must find a way to activate it. When he gets to the Artifact Activation chamber, he presses a few buttons and pulls a few levers and the Artifact is activated, giving him the power to influence Aliens. When the Artifact was enabled, an invisible force-field was also activated, preventing Aliens from coming any where near it and kills those that do.

Predator Mission 2
Date: July 25, 1731 
Time: 7:10 PM
Location: Near Artifact Chamber
During the eight months, other Predators arrive at the planet to explore and establish themselves. On one particular day, other Predators went to investigate the Artifact Activation Chamber while the main Predator went on hunt for the Alien Queen. After getting so close to the Queen’s nest, the Aliens retaliate and disable the Artifact so the Predator is called back to the Artifact Chamber to defend it from Aliens. The Aliens kill all Predators in the Artifact Chamber and it’s up to the main Predator to reinstate the stasis fields so he makes his way to the Egg Chambers to try and activate the stasis fields.

Predalien Mission 1
Date: July 25, 1731 
Time: 8:15 PM 
Location: In a tunnel near Pilot Ruins
During the retaliation of the Aliens, a lone Facehugger makes its way through the Zeta Hive, somehow avoiding all nearby Predators. While ducking and diving, the Facehugger cannot facehug any of the Predators along the way because they are in groups. So it must find a suitable host, preferably a Predator who is alone. With help from some Drone Aliens to distract the Predators, the Facehugger manages to crawl through shafts and above ceilings avoiding the Predators. Eventually the Facehugger arrives at the Egg Chamber where it sees a lone Predator trying to reinstate the stasis fields. The Facehugger jumps down into the Egg Chamber and pounces towards the Predator…

Predator Mission 2
Date: July 25, 1731 
Time: 9:20 PM 
Location: Egg Chamber
While trying to reinstate the stasis fields, the Predator accidentally triggers the stasis fields but has enough time to turn around and spot the Facehugger. With the Facehugger in mid-air, the stasis fields freeze everything including the Predator and the Facehugger. Somehow, the Facehugger manages to implant the Egg but as the Facehugger dies, unknown to the Predator, he is carrying the egg. As the centuries go on, the Predator is still trapped waiting for someone or something to free him but 500 years later, there is someone on their way to free him…

Corporate Mission 1
Date: September 21, 2230
Time: 7:06 PM
Location: Forward Observation Pod 5
Around 500 years later, General Rykov and Dr. Eisenberg learnt of this Artifact and sent in a team of Combat Synthetics to retrieve the Artifact. Unfortunately, they didn’t make it to the Artifact and were killed by many Praetorians. At the present time, Rykov calls Dunya in to explain to her the situation they’re in and tells her that he has found a buyer for the Artifact and Dunya is the one who has to go to the Pilot Ruins and find the Artifact.

Corporate Mission 1
Date: September 21, 2230
Time: 11:40 PM
Location: Entrance to Zeta Site
Popov, another corporate, transports Dunya and two Iron Bears in an APC to an entrance to the Zeta Hive and it’s here where the journey starts. The two Iron Bears escort Dunya to an elevator which takes them down into the Alien Hive and while defending Dunya from the Aliens, the two Iron Bears are killed. It’s now down to Dunya alone to retrieve the Artifact. She rushes through passageways, avoiding Aliens and she eventually arrives at the Artifact Chamber. Other Aliens are unable to come into the Artifact Chamber so Dunya is safe for the time being. Rykov speaks to her via the walkie-talkie, telling her to find a receptacle to disable the Artifact. Dunya finds the receptacle and places the disruption device, given to her by a scientist, into the receptacle and that disables the Artifact. After a long time of waiting, the online Pilot systems shut down but also causes damage to the entrance of the Artifact Chamber so she’s forced to find an alternative route…

Predator Mission 2
Date: September 22, 2230
Time: 7:32 AM
Location: Egg Chamber
By Dunya disabling the Artifact, the Predator who was frozen in the stasis fields, is now freed after 500 years of been trapped. The Predator rushes to the Artifact Chamber via an Alien tunnel and arrives on a very high platform just in time to spot Dunya steal the Artifact. After Dunya leaves, the Predator must chase after her to return the Artifact but a group of Aliens surround the Predator. These Aliens prove no problem for the Predator and continues through the Pilot Ruins behind Dunya.

Corporate Mission 1
Date: September 22, 2230
Time: 7:46 AM 
Location: Artifact Chamber
Dunya climbs up to a platform above in the Artifact Chamber and continues through many doors and killing many Aliens. She eventually gets to a control room which was probably built by the Predators and takes an elevator up to a platform above. After escaping Facehuggers and crawling under rocks, Dunya gets to a room with skulls hung up on the wall which were trophies gained by Predators of many different species. She exits the room and goes through numerous doors and faces a powerful Praetorian which is no threat to her. After avoiding a few Facehuggers, she exits Zeta site and emerges into open air where she is given new objectives.

Predator Mission 2
Date: September 22, 2230
Time: 7:48 AM
Location: Artifact Chamber
As soon as Dunya leaves the Artifact Chamber, the Predator jumps down onto the platform below and follows Dunya. Traveling through passages and killing Aliens, the Predator soon gets to the control room with an elevator. Since Dunya took the elevator, the Predator must find a different way to get to her so he jumps up onto platforms below and through a window. On the ground below, Dunya has just gone through a door but the entrance has been blocked so the Predator has to go a different way. He goes into the trophy room and jumps up onto platforms and over the wall just behind Dunya. The Predator manages to fend off Aliens long enough to make it out of Zeta site through the same door as Dunya. After Dunya makes her way to Pod 5, the Predator somehow manages to get to Pod 5 but it is unknown which way he went.

Corporate Mission 2
Date: September 22, 2230
Time: 9:34 AM 
Location: Exit of Zeta Site
When exiting Zeta site, Dunya receives a call from Rykov telling her where the APC is so she now has to make her way to the extraction zone to be picked up. The APC has activated its locator so it appears on Dunya’s Motion Tracker to make it easier to find. She travels by foot along the surface of the planet meeting Runners, Drones and Facehuggers and indigenous creatures. While traveling through winding paths, Dunya finally gets to the APC and Chekov is there to pick her up. In the APC, Dunya tells Rykov that his suspicions were right about some other species using the Artifact – the Predators.

Predator Mission 3
Date: September 22, 2230
Time: 11:16 AM
Location: The walkway connecting Pod 5 to the water pumping station
Just over one and a half hours later from leaving the Zeta site, the Predator arrives at Pod 5. He gets to the top of a walkway where he finds an access panel which he need to get through. The Predator pulls the panel off and throws it off the platform to the ground and flattens an unfortunate human on the crater floor. He climbs through the hole into Pod 5 where the mission begins. First of all, the Predator needs to hack into the Pod’s systems to find the location of the Artifact. Along he goes through the narrow corridors killing humans and eventually the Predator gets to a big boiler room where he kills two Combat Synthetics. After exiting the room, he climbs up a ladder into a control room. The creature kills all humans nearby and hacks into the Pod’s system to find the location of the Artifact. As soon as he knows it’s in Storage Area C, he climbs up the elevator shaft and hacks his way through the door into another room. After a big fight between humans and Aliens, the Predator hacks into the Storage Area to retrieve the Artifact…

Corporate Mission 3
Date: September 22, 2230
Time: 11:25 AM
Location: Pod 5
After resting in Pod 5 with Dimitri, Rykov contacts Dunya and tells her that Aliens have breached the water walk. Rykov orders Dimitri to go to the water walk to meet Chekov and tells Dunya to retrieve the Artifact so they can take it to another pod. She goes to Storage Area C to check on the Artifact so she sets out towards the Artifact. Aliens are already inside the pod but Dunya makes it to Storage Area C in time to see a strange creature in the Artifact room and then this creature disappears in front of her very eyes. Unknown to her, it’s the Predator who has turned invisible. Dr. Eisenberg has blown up the walkways connecting Pod 5 to Pods 2 and 4 and she’s now ordered to get to the cargo lift in order to evacuate the pod.

Predator Mission 3
Date: September 22, 2230
Time: 11:40 AM
Location: Storage Area in Pod 5
After getting the Artifact, the Predator exits Storage Area C and goes in search for a communications room to broadcast a message to any nearby Predator ships. Other Corporates are killed but the Predator manages to get to an elevator where he’s taken up towards the communications room. Hurrying along the corridors, he gets to the communications room and sends his current coordinates to any other Predators nearby but during the process, the Predator collapses to the floor in pain. The Alien egg planted inside him 500 years ago by a lone Facehugger has hatched and a Chestburster breaks its way through the Predator’s chest, killing him in the process…

Corporate Mission 3
Date: September 23, 2230
Time: Unknown
Location: Storage Area in Pod 5
After been ordered by Rykov, Dunya sets on her way towards the cargo lift. She exits the storage area and climbs up a ladders into a shaft. She climbs through and goes through a door and encounters many Runner Aliens. These are no problem for her and carries down the stairs into large cargo room. She runs down to the level below and gets to the elevator. Just as Dunya calls up the elevator, a sweep of Aliens crawl into the room but with the help of her weaponry and the deployable Sentry Guns, she manages to fend them off. Off she goes down the elevator to the cargo bay where she catches up with Rykov. Dimitri hasn’t returned since he went to secure the breach so Rykov presumes he’s dead. Just as they’re speaking, Dimitri radios to Rykov so Rykov tells him that they’re evacuating Pod 5. Ivan, Chekov and Rykov take the cargo lift down to the crater bottom while Dunya stays at the cargo bay to defend it until Dimitri arrives. Dunya sets up her remaining Sentry Guns and uses the Turret Gun to kill any Aliens flooding in. Dimitri eventually arrives and explains to Dunya that he took a detour through excavation storage before going to the walkway and must have just missed Chekov. They both go down the cargo lift to the bottom of the pods where they catch up with Dr. Eisenberg.

Predalien Mission 2
Date: September 22, 2230
Time: 12:05 PM
Location: Communications Room in Pod 5
After the Predator is killed, the Chestburster hides in the room and a Corporate investigates to see what made the unauthorized broadcast. He radios to a team about the mystery creature that’s lying dead on the floor and tells them that it was holding the Artifact. The Corporate exits the room but is sadly killed by a Runner Alien. Now the Chestburster is born, it must avoid enemies at all cost and find a food supply in order to evolve. The Chestburster should have been enclosed in the corridors but the only explanation could be that the guards on duty in the next few rooms must have been distracted and opened the doors. The creature escaped the humans and made its way to a room with a circular table. Humans came into the room and the Chestburster managed to slip by the guard unnoticed. The creature makes its way to the cloak room where an Alien helped it to escape. Along it goes above the ceiling and drops down to the corridor. A few fully-grown Aliens distract nearby guards and the Chestburster gets to the Pod 5 Morgue. In here it has a full food supply and soon evolves into a more fiercer creature…

Predalien Mission 3
Date: September 23, 2230
Time: 03:28 AM
Location: Morgue in Pod 5
A Corporate enters the Morgue after a while and radios to others that Aliens are everywhere in the pod, but as he turns around, the evolvement of the Chestburster is staring right at him. The Predalien kills the Corporate and escapes through a vent in the ceiling. Its mission at the moment is to escape the pod but it does need to find the Artifact and return it to the Alien Hive. The creature’s intelligence is far superior than every imaged and it manages to disable the Electrified Duct Control which shuts down electrified grates. With the grates unprotected, it destroys Sentry Gun controls in the room nearby so it slips in and goes through to a boiler room. The creature kills the humans and eventually makes it onto the corridors. Even with Combat Synthetics on guard, the powerful Predalien kills anything in its path and gets to a large pipe. It exits the pipe and wanders around Pod 5 and destroys a control panel giving him access to further rooms. It crawls underground and emerges next to a room near the Artifact.

After the Predator was killed, the Artifact must have been retrieved by a Drone Alien which brought it to this room. It’s not clear how the Drone Alien died but Chekov sent a team to collect it. Ivan, Popov and a couple of other synthetics arrive in the room to get the Artifact before Pod 5 is blown up. Numerous Aliens are trying to get to the Artifact in the room next door and Ivan and Popov leave the room before the first charges goes off so they go down to the extraction point. Just as the two Corporates leave, the Aliens burst through the door and the two Combat Synthetics try to kill them but are easily killed by the Aliens. The first charges blow and kills the remaining Aliens in the room so the Predalien must abandon the Artifact before the whole of Pod 5 comes down. With the pod shaking, the Predalien crawls up a shaft into a much bigger room. It finds and destroys the Security Array Access panel and even destroys to humans in Exosuits. In order to escape, the creature must find a panel to disable the electric girders so it crawls up to a higher level power room and disables them so crawls out of a shaft to exit Pod 5.

Predalien Mission 3
Date: September 23, 2230
Time: 7:02 AM
Location: Somewhere aboard Pod 5
After retrieving the Artifact, Popov and a couple of Combat Synthetics were killed which could have been caused by the many blasts or by Aliens. Other Aliens including the Predalien escape the pod by a beam on the top but where the Artifact is, next to Popov, a Drone Alien appears next to it but it’s too late as Dr. Eisenberg makes his final order regarding Pod 5…

Corporate Mission 3
Date: September 23, 2230
Time: 7:02 AM
Location: Beneath the Forward Observation Pods.
Dunya wonders if there’s any chance to save the pod but once the lift broke away, there’s no chance of regaining the pod so the only option is to destroy Pod 5 before the Aliens find a way to spread to other pods. The question of any survivors is ruled out by Dr. Eisenberg and he then orders the removal of Pod 5 from the rest of the pods.

Any Mission
Date: November 23, 2230
Time: 10:18 PM
Incident: -1 day, 7 hours.
Location: Primary Operations Complex, LV-1201.
Dr. Eisenberg and a scientist are talking about the loss of Pod 5 and the scientist gets onto the possibility of “potential relics” going missing at the Zeta dig site. Dr. Eisenberg replies by saying that nothing has gone missing when he was on watch and the “relic” the scientist heard about was of little importance compared to the knowledge, he’s getting from xenomorph studies.

Predator Mission 3
Date: November 26, 2230
Time: 3:55 PM
Incident: +1 day, 11 hours.
Location: Somewhere near the Primary Operations Complex, LV-1201.
With the coordinates the Predator in Pod 5 sent, a couple of months later, a Predator ship lands on LV-1201. Presumably, the ship contains many Predators as a few were captured in AvP2 but one Predator comes to the Primary Operations Complex and kills two guards. Note that I think this is the Predator you play as, in Aliens vs Predator 2.

Conclusion
Date: October 12, 2230
Time: Unknown
Location: Gateway Station, Earth.
Weyland-Yutani Weapons Division, Oversight Committee, Summary of Meeting Concerning the Loss of Pod 5.

The loss of Pod 5 is a significant setback for operations on LV-1201. Though the pod contained only secondary systems, crew quarters and recreation facilities, its loss serves to justify the concerns some committee members have long felt regarding Dr. Eisenberg’s oversight of the project. Rather than wait for an official explanation from Dr. Eisenberg, the committee has authorized the immediate departure of a class 2 investigative team and auditor for LV-1201 with the intention of conducting an independent investigation into the events leading to the severing of Pod 5. Until more data is available the priority must be stabilizing the situation on LV-1201 before any more mistakes are made.

  1. Sir? Could you do this with the original game (AvP 2)? I’ve been looking around but it seems nobody ever bothered of clearing up the chronological mission order of the three vanilla campaigns. I’m replaying it now before starting Primal Hunt which I finally found after years of longing, and I’m realizing that the vanilla campaign is a mess to get into without some help.
