    Der Predator. Mit seiner lichtbrechenden Tarntechnik verfolgt dieser einsame Jäger seine Beute nahezu unsichtbar, bis er sie mit den Handgelenk-Klingen oder einer Plasmaladung vernichtet.

    Das Alien. Mit atemberaubender Geschwindigkeit schlägt dieser Xenomorph aus allen Richtungen zu und tötet mit seinen rasiermesserscharfen Klauen oder mit einem gezielten Biss.

    Der Marine. Schonungsloses Training, militärische Strategie und überlegene Feuerkraft ermöglichen es diesem Soldaten, seine Feine zu bezwingen.
