This hugely popular Versus event returns for 2021. You know the deal, success is all about your ability to move and land shots. The best news (or not), is there are no pesky Lancers crossing as you run in for that crucial last second break.

Horde Event: Predator Hunt

Wakaatu from the Hivebusters DLC is a flying pose

Predator Hunt is an all new Horde event featuring the legendary Wakaatu – the deadly predator from the Hivebusters DLC.

Three players hunker down on Pahanu to fend off 10 Waves of relentless enemies and one badass monster.  And to make it even more challenging, there are no fabricators allowed. 

We’re going to make Predator Hunt worth your while with a dedicated medal group for you to unlock the Comic Book weapon set.
