A predator AI for PvE only.
This predator AI will hunt players across the map. It will hunt players by tracking the sounds they make. Gunshots, disturbed crows and dogs will draw it closer to the players. This would thus retain the purpose of stealth in PvE. Make to much noise and it will find you.
This sounds very cool ! In my opinion the predator doesen't need to be a boss, but a extra flavor in the map.

Wonder if the Predator could be a interesting idea for a new Boss Monster...?
Instead of us going to the Boss to hunt it, this particular Boss hunts us... >:D
The predator could be so dangerous that hunter teams engaging in a firefight are forced to cease fire immediately the moment they hear the predator approaching their vicinity. It could create a "sudden death" scenario where hunters can't use loud weapons and have to hide + escape.
This idea looks awesome. It would be really creepy to listen a sound that you know it's from that Predator, and you know he is next to you and maybe you're the unlucky one which is going to be hunted soon.
good idea. Just needs to be done in a balanced way
Only issue is that if players kill it. Does it re-spawn? And how often? Does it give more exp? (which it should) then players would hunt it and then dip out. The only thing that does not attack you in the game are the ducks and crows. Maybe those can now attack when disturbed.
A nice idea but I would add this: I doesnt come to you when you're fighting the boss because its scared of the boss. This way it wont interrupt your boss fight and only will come after you if you make too much noise after the boss is dead.
I think that's a brilliant idea.
Honestly, I'd love this in regular PvP too. It'd encourage people to be quiet regardless, and would add even more tension.
Jeepers Creepers comes to mind.
Should it still be able to show up while you are blasting away the Monster boss? Or have it wait in the woods until you are done? I like the idea of something else hunting you.
I actually think it could be very interesting. It has to be something very creepy and brutal.
