  4. when are we gonna see Dutch who slain the predator from the 1987
  5. when are we gonna get more game modes meaning 2 -3 -4 predators vs 2-3 man squads of the fire-team
  6. when are the bugs gonna be fix meaning, 1. the predator’s wrist blade glitch, and 2.stuck in between trees
  7. and when are we gonna see the super predators
