The Predator is a metastable zombie form with extreme regenerative properties, intelligence, strength and lethality. It acts solely on its impulse to track down and kill any survivor it encounters, which it does with brutal efficiency because it is virtually impossible to stop.

It was created in the laboratory by directly administering a genetically engineered sample of the fungus with enhanced properties to an living, human test subject in an attempt to weaponize the zombie plague. It is less necrotic and more alien in appearance than other forms, probably due to the unique, interwoven symbiosis between the fungus and its human host.
