The Predator (Known as the Police Predator in the HD Universe) is a Police Assault Boat used by the police force.

Description Edit

In all its appearances, the Predator serves as the main way of naval transport for the Police in the 3D and HD Universes, appearing sometimes patrolling areas (HD Universe), and when having a wanted level and roaming in water areas.

The Predator is a speedboat designed to serve local Police Departments, but its performance is typically slightly inferior to even the most basic of speedboats such as the Speeder. However, the Predator is an unique in that it has built-in .50 caliber machine guns on both sides of the hull, the boat shoots the same rounds as the helicopter Police Maverick. But in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, the boats have the Little Willie rounds, thus giving the player the ability to destroy any other boat directly in front of them; however, the guns are also revealed to seize briefly after prolonged firing, implying it is reloading ammunition.

Being a Police Boat, the Predator will, with the exception of GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, appear if the player has a wanted level and is on water ; however, despite being a Police Vehicle, the Predator does not have Vigilante Missions associated with it. In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, an officer will be on the roof of the boat and will shoot the player if they have, at least, a two star wanted level. The Predator has been seen driving around San Fierro Bay if the player has no wanted level or lock stars cheat activated. In GTA San Andreas, the Predator also has the ability to use the radio, despite being a Police Vehicle. It also has emergency lights, but no sirens.

In GTA IV, the Police Predator does not have the built-in machine guns, having been replaced by two Police Officers at the back who will shoot the player with Carbine Rifles; the Predators themselves only begin to appear from a two-stars wanted level onwards. They will be more aggressive if the wanted level is higher.

In GTA V, the Coast Guard rides in the Police Predator are armed with Micro-SMGs.
