I was wondering if anyone could tell me:

  • How the Predators Plasma Caster works.
  • How the Bio Mask changes vision modes.
  • Finally how the Wrist Blades and Combi-Stick extend and retract.
  • I think you need to be clearer. Are you asking how they would work in reality, how they work in the films or how the props work?

  • I mean in the films sorry if you didnt understand ;-) Mar 25, 2014 at 20:17
  • I'm still unclear what you mean. If you're just after general info you should read the AVP wikia; avp.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page

According to the Predator Wikia the "Plasma Caster" is based on eye-tracking technology. The gun itself is shoulder-mounted and can be fired either using the wrist gauntlet or by some kind of hidden signal (such as a button inside the Biomask).

The Bio-mask is a combination breather, video recorder and targeting system for the Plasma Caster. The various vision modes include EM, Infra-red (easily fooled by mud) and UV. The modes are themselves controlled from the Predator's gauntlet.

The Wrist Blades extend from sheaths that mount to the wrist. They're controlled by a button on the side of the wrist. In addition to acting as melee weapons, they can also be explosively fired at enemies

The Combi-Stick is a lightweight weapon that telescopes to form a spear-like object that can either be used as a pike or thrown at an opponent. They have an LED-lit button on the side that seems to activate the extension mechanism

  • Ok thanks! By the way do you think you could explain how the predator changes vision modes for me if its not to much to ask? (and anyone else who is reading this and wants to know) Mar 25, 2014 at 20:24
  • Oh sorry dude i didnt realise you said it was controlled by the gauntlet Mar 25, 2014 at 20:30
