Predators unleash a lightning field AoE burst which deals 20 damage with every attack. While they gain no bonus against any unit type, a handful of them can easily bring down swarms of {{link|zergling|SC2}}s or other low health units with their AoE burst attack.

A primary weakness to using predators is that, for their cost, they are not very durable for a melee unit. Also, because they are mechanical units, they cannot be paired with [[medic]]s or [[medivac dropship]]s (though they can potentially be paired with the [[science vessel]]). Without armor upgrades, predators will die fairly easily against ranged attackers.

Predators are strong against zerglings, [[baneling]]s, {{link|infested terran|SC2}}s, {{link|marine|SC2}}s, [[firebat]]s, [[reaper]]s, [[hellion]]s, and occasionally {{link|zealot|SC2}}s and [[Sentry|sentries]]. Unfortunately, they have many counters: [[marauder]]s, {{link|siege tank|SC2}}s, [[thor]]s, [[diamondback]]s, [[stalker]]s, [[immortal]]s, [[Colossus|colossi]], [[roach]]es, {{link|hydralisk|SC2}}s, {{link|ultralisk|SC2}}s, and any air units. This makes the predator an extremely specialized unit.
