In Prey (2022), the main protagonist, Naru had to lure a mountain lion into an ambush. In a turn of event, Naru got pin down by the lion and had to resort to climb a tree.

From the tree top she saw what looks like a fireball in the tree line in the distance which distracted here causing the lion maul her and she fell from the tree. No further explanation of what she saw. Later, she did mention to her brother that she saw something but did not elaborate more.

What was it that she saw? Was it the Predator doing?

What was it that she saw? Was it the Predator doing?

We don't know BUT it's almost certain it is the Predator firing it's weapon or causing it somehow.

Exactly what remains unanswered. I'm trying to find a copy of the script but without much luck.

There is something similar when the Predator is killing the French hunters.

  • It is really hard to see. They reference to it firing its weapon, but to me it just looked like a campfire or something, wasn't really discernible to me. Jun 16, 2023 at 22:50
  • It's definitely an explosion of some kind or a large flare up at least. The logical explanation, given what we know, or find out later, is that it's the Predator weaponry. I'll re-watch to double check.

  • maybe its my crap monitor or tv then, just looked really dull and not 'pew pew' or boom like... Jun 16, 2023 at 23:00
  • There's definitely a sound associated with the flare which seemed familiar.

    On rewatch the Predator doesn't seem to have any advanced laser weaponry such as we saw in previous movies. I still think it was the Predator but what it was doing is open to question.
