It was a common narrative that unlocking the Predator skin requires players to defeat him in a boss fight, just like the event where the community had to take on Wolverine in order to avail his outfit and Classic Style. However, it turns out that this was a myth, as Twitch streamer SypherPK busted it recently.

While trying to unlock Predator, SypherPK discovered that simply dealing damage and staying alive also serves the purpose. Luckily, the boss spotted the streamer himself, and handed him an opportunity to hit some early shots.

“Oh, my god. Yo chill! That’s him, that’s the big Predator bro. I thought it was a player pushing me,” exclaimed SypherPK when he first encountered Predator. He further added, “Oh, he died, but I still got it, right? Okay, so quick tip, you don’t have to actually defeat him. If you tag him, and you stay alive, once somebody else kills him, you will unlock the skin.”
