In the AvP movie the Aliens acid blood burned through the Predators armor and also the Predators weaponry. Pesonally I thought the Predators metal was so advanced it was resistant to the acid blood, which is the case in some of the comics. What are peoples thoughts on this.

i think it should have been acid proof, considering they were teenagers

I don't get it why their armor and wristblades weren't acid proof,when Scar's spear impaled aliens no problem.

It could be down to trying to make the hunt more challlenging. But more than likely it was Anderson f**king up.

Resistant, ok. Entirely acid proof, no.

Yes. It would take longer for the metal used by Predators to corrode.

Okay, I moved the topic here as it's about AvP.

I agree. The Predators armour and weapons should have been acid-resistant.

I don't see why. Its a ritual, basically survival of the fittest, so why give more of an advantage? The plasma cannons are more than enough if things get hairy, they have nets that somewhat can incapacitate the Aliens and then there is of course the particle bomb.
I guess in the whole scheme of things out in space the Preds wouldn't have acid proof or resistant armour in case Aliens crossed their path either, they're a very proud nomadic hunter race, I doubt they'd even contemplate it.

Agreed, acid-proof weapons for the Predators would be extremely unfair in terms of "survival of the fittest". It's like using an Autosniper in Counterstrike... completely unfair.

If it's "survival of the fittest", why would it be unfair? It's not the Predators' fault that Aliens lack the intelligence to design their own weapons. Besides, the shoulder cannons are even more "unfair"...
