Predators are available as a special anti-infantry unit in ''[[StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty]]'' at the cost of 15 [[zerg]] research points and access to the [[Hercules dropship]].<ref name ="SC2-WoL_StoryLabZerg">Blizzard Entertainment. ''[[StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty]].'' (Activision Blizzard). PC. Zerg research (in English). 2010.</ref>
 
 
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.

Predators were able to cloak as long as they had energy available to use. In addition, Lightning Field was also known as 'Retribution Field' instead.<ref name = "SCIIEditor">Blizzard Entertainment.

==Trivia==
 
 
In the ''[[Heart of the Swarm]]'' mission "[[Infested (Heart of the Swarm mission)|Infested]]", there are five predators of different colors. This is a possible reference to the ''[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voltron Voltron]'' anime series.

Cybercat SC-C2 Head1

A Screaming Skulls cybercat

Predators, sometimes called "cybercats", are big, heavy robots shaped like cats.

In 2502, some were owned by the Screaming Skulls, and were used in an attempt to kill their former captives, War Pig members Vin Iggins and Cole Hickson. One knocked Iggins down, but Hickson terminated them with shots from a pistol.[1]

During the Second Great War, Egon Stetmann's research was (theoretically) able to equip predators with an electrical discharge field.[2]

Game Uible reference to the Voltron anime series.
