A Predator in GTA III.

The Predator is a police assault boat that the police and the player may use. It has appeared in the following games:


The Predator is apparently a speedboat designed to serve local police departments, but its performance is typically slightly inferior to even the most basic of speedboats such as the Speeder. However, the Predator is a unique in that it has built-in .50 caliber machine guns on both sides of the hull, thus giving the player the ability to destroy any other boat directly in front of them; however, the guns are also revealed to seize briefly after prolonged firing, implying it is reloading ammunition.

Being a police boat, the Predator will, with the exception of GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, appear if the player has a wanted level and is on water; however, despite being a police vehicle, the Predator does not have Vigilante Missions associated with it. In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, an officer will be on the roof of the boat and will shoot the player if they have, at least, a two star wanted level. The Predator has been seen driving around San Fierro Bay if the player has no wanted level or lock stars cheat activated. In GTA San Andreas, the Predator also has the ability to use the radio, despite being a police vehicle. It also has emergency lights, but no sirens.

In GTA IV, the Police Predator does not have the built-in machine guns, having been replaced by two officers on the back who will shoot the player with M4 Carbine assault rifles; the Predators themselves only begin to appear from a 3-star wanted level onwards. It is possible that they well be more aggressive if the wanted level is higher.



The Predator serves as the basis of another boat in GTA III, known as the Ghost (Missing). Appearing only in the mission Gone Fishing, the Ghost sports an entirely blue (PS2 version) or black (PC version) body and lacks the twin machine guns of the Predator.


GTA Vice City
GTA San Andreas
  • Sometimes you can find Predators in the waters or if you got more than a 2 star wanted level or you can kill the officers in a boat and steal the Predator.
GTA Liberty City Stories
  • The only way to obtain one is by getting a wanted level near the water. When the boat is near, kill the officers onboard and clear your wanted level.
