I always figured he was younger and less experienced.

Sort of on Predator Rumspringa.

To be fair he only had breathing issues after having his chest blown open by a shotgun. I also got the impression it was younger.

City Hunter be like, “I’m a kid in a cadaver store.” :D

I just can’t help loving City Hunter, he’s so bad to the bone; how he jumps into a sea of people and takes them apart. I mean what’s more epic? Jungle blasting Jessie Ventura through the chest, or City dropping down with Combistick to take on Keyes and his men? ;)

Xenopedia claims he’s Blooded which a rank above:
With all due respect I don't take fan sites as gospel.

Jungle Hunter walking out of the water after chasing Dutch down the waterfall remains the most epic predator moment for me. That thing just exuded dread.

Gospel or not its a source. I mean we are fans and have caught details. Are we to consider ourselves irrelevant? So in the same way I urge we nor dismiss fan discoveries and data unless it be proven error.

That is a great scene, Dutch seemed done for.

I'm saying he's younger. My source is myself, a fan. Am I to consider myself irrelevant?

No, you are entitled to your view. But my point was we shouldn’t dismiss Xenopedia because its a fan based site.

My point is it has no more weight than any other fan perspective.

And yet things like City Hunter being blooded or older or more experienced aren't taken from any evidence in the movies. It's fan speculation.

Does the Predator 2 book or comics lend insight on his age? Are there interviews with Winston, Kevin Peter Hall, or Stephen Hopkins?

That would be where one could ascertain the age of City Hunter, in the intent of the director, how Kevin was told to act in comparison to his Jungle Hunter performance.

Illfonic actually has answered "rank" and his age at least to a degree. His flavor text in Hunting Grounds does indicate he's a "young blood" by the time Predator 2 occurs (since it's based on that incarnation of him) and the logs indicate he's around 300 though we don't get a specific age.
