Predators: The Lost Tribes. Yautja descendants have been stranded in Skyrim for thousands of years hunt on the edges of Tamriel, and live on the fringes of the harsh Nord wilderness.

Play as a Predator, or as a standard Skyrim race. Rediscover Yautja artifacts, weapons and armor lost in Skyrim. You can mix and match a lot of clothing and armor in Skyrim to create your own character and roleplay story.

Predators have stashed cultural gear in hidden locations. Drop pods are concealed or abandoned in the landscape. A Book found in the Helgen Keep Tutorial, outside of Helgen's keep and Dragonsbane castle will start you off and add points to your Map where camps of Yautja have settled. Beware, the Berserkers, Savages and Badblood Yautja are hostile headhunters and not friendly to outsiders. Fear not, civilized Yautja live far to the North East. However Yautja have also brought deadly Xenomorph species to the land as well and have established training temples and concealed communities hidden about the land.



- Remove/Delete any previous predator .BSA and .ESP files.
- Then drop all the new predator files into your Data folder.
- Set the Predator Mod files to load LAST at the bottom of your mod list.
- Your Skyrim must be an updated/patched to the latest "official" version.
(Do not expect to run this mod with a cracked or hacked Skyrim.exe as those are frequently out of date)


Extras - excellent add ons patches for this Mod..

  • Renza's Race Compatiabilty Patch for Predators - Download this here!   This patch fixes werewolf /vampire and race compatibility issues - requires Dawnguard and RaceCompataibilty MOD.   This Race compatability mod  ===> http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/24168/?
  • Green blood screen flecks

  • Triangle HUD Cursor

  • Higher Player Jump abilities 






Yautja and Xenos are extremely tough and dangerous. Engage them with caution, cunning, and maybe a few healing potions.  Yautja covet the weapons, armor and relics their ancestors brought here from the stars. Trading with them, finding their hidden drop pod stashes, or defeating them in combat is the greatest source for finding Yautja culture.

There are 3 'races' with both Male and Female gender.  Y you can set skin color tinting and there are many dreadlocks styles you can choose from.  (There is no CBBE or other body mod compatibility as there are so many assets right now converting it over would take a lot of time.)

This mod adds a large selection of unique Predator Culture.  Weapons, Armor, different boots and sandals, gauntlets, necklaces, trophies and over 30 Predator Bio-Mask designs. Coal forges and stone grind wheels are not enough to improve Yautja gear.  You will find Yautja armor upgrades kits that will allow you to improve the strange metals the predator items are made from.  There are also Upgrades to predator cloaking devices that will improve your Sneak capability.

36 Yautja Weapons!

Wrist blade weapons - If you put a left wrist blade into a right hand slot (or right in a left slot)- they will attach facing backwards! So put right handed wrist weapons on the right hand, left in the left. Simple enough. Swords, combi sticks, Glaive, disk weapons and even plasma guns don't care what hand you hold them in.

Wrist mounted weapons will work correctly with vanilla skyrim animations. If you find them occasionally flipping backwards when you move - its a bug with another Animation Mod you're running. This is a confirmed thing from Beta testers. Nothing i can do with my mod to fix their bug.

Predators are 100% resistant to Skyrim diseases. However - In Dawnguard you Can still transform in vampire lord after being bitten by Serana! However you can not currently play/use the Brotherhood Werewolf ability with this new race. (issues with Skyrim's werewolf Scripts) So consider Vampire and Werewolf as unsupported by this race.

New special armor art in Dawnguard or Dragonborn will appear invisible. Those games have their own item lists. However - there are some 3rd party compatibility patches here on the Nexus others have made, so go search and see what you can find for 'Predators'.

Currently only Predators can wear Predator BioHelms in this mod. (the exception is the Falmer helm and destroyer biomask). Yautja do not wear most vanilla Skyrim helmets because of their odd head shape. Eventually I'll make more variations of biomask 3d models so more vanilla Skyrim races can wear the masks.

REMINDER - This is a work in progress!

SAVE your games! -- not just quick save. Be able to back it up if really bad bugs happen, or if updates make conflicts, or new quests or new things later you just want to revisit without starting over. I don't have a crew of a half dozen game dev pros working on this - its just little olde me and a few Modders from the Nexus community pitching in. So some things will come soon and other changes may take a long time. To this date, I've steadily worked on this and will continue to do so as time permits.

I will try to make updates to this Predator Mod every few Months. I listen to User feedback, and take action as I am able, with the time I have. There is much more planned for this mod - and MANY improvements still to come.

- - - KNOWN BUGS - - -

  There is a Predators Race Compatibility Patch available on the downloads page that should take care of 3rd party mod armor, transformations, race quest compatibility issues and many other bugs Skyrim typically develops with New races.  You do not need to run the patch - but be aware of issues that can occur.

There are a few quests with dialogues that check for what vanilla Skyrim race you are. If you're not a vanilla race the quest hangs or just ends. To fix this when encountered - simply redo that dialogue again but switch to a vanilla race - do the quest dialogue and then swap back to your Yautja race when the dialogue is done and rewards are all given etc. 

Dark Brotherhood quest - will currently hang at one point where the quest looks to see what race you are for its response. ( if it does hang - just switch your race to a vanilla race - do the dialogue for the quest - then switch back to continue playing Yautja)

Werewolf quest - dialogue for Companions werewolf quest will also hang because of a quest race check for dialogue responses. switch to a vanilla race temporarily to do the dialogue thin the cave. However i don't think Werewolf powers work anyway with Yautja - so best to skip this quest all together if you can.

The Wedding bug (Fixed in V110B !!!) In old versions disgruntled Yautja would crash the wedding and attack the priest and guests. WTF you say - yeah apparently the temple priest was a friend of "thief faction" the Yautja hate. So it was kill on sight time.

Followers NPCs - Yautja followers are a little buggy. Be warned. Its easy for Mod conflicts to occur with these guys. They can't walk into the Derelict ship or Destroyed Xeno Temple. (still working on that bug) When you exit these spaces - they'll be gone until you fast travel - they they'll be back and by your side. Be warned. They can get really buggy it you're running a 3rd party mod that heavily modifies vanilla Skyrim follower/NPC behavior. They might not want to dismiss. So you'll have to experiment with them if you're not sure to see how it handles for you. I wasn't doing to do this follower stuff - but fans requested it so I relented and put it out for better or for worse.

Demolished Xeno Temple - Sometimes if your AntiAlias and other game settings are automatically set to ULTRA HIGH 16x - you may experience problems in the very busy temple. You might need to set your graphics to8X which is still insanely high instead of godly high should you experience a crash in there. (learned here that my future levels won't be so elaborate/busy and broken up into smaller bits)

Getting started Faster - read on for hints!

- There are Yautja books in wizard's desk at DragonsReach Castle, Helgen's keep dungeon, and in a drop pod outside of Helgen keep. These books give Map locations of many dangerous Yautja camps and abandoned drop pod sites.

You can find the starter gear and a small Book in the Helgen keep dungeon. (the tutorial dungeon we all have to run at the start of the game) An imperial officer and a soldier are near a recently dug up dwemer chest in the store room that contains this and more Yautja treasure.

Don't want to play the tutorial? - that's understandable - so that's why - not far off the road that is the exit of the tutorial - there is a drop pod with starter gear and books that grants map way-points in it.

Additional Gear is hidden out in the icebergs and water East/ North East of the Solitude Lighthouse and randomly out in the water or stuck partially in the ice - probably barely visible. There is usually a drop pod in every Yautja Camp. Sometimes random loot gear in DropPods is a repeat. When you are low level - you may have to sneak to get loot - Yautja are very powerful creatures that will kill low level players.

Many of the Predator camps and Xeno locations are given by wizard's Books about the Yautja. Find and read any of these books and 4-5 predator locations will be put on your map.

The Civilized (less hostile tribes) of Yautja live in the ruins of a Derelict ship - located to the far North East Shores of Skyrim.

Locations of (just some of the) hostile NPC predator camps. Beware they are very capable of killing a single low level Yautja or stranger trespassing on sight.

- Ysgramor's tomb (North, North East shore) Savage cave dweller Yautja live here. Warning!  They are particularly EVIL, deadly and fearless.
- Iceberg far, far north of Wreck of the Brinehammer (better swim or water walk)
- Twilight Sepulcher's exterior valley (a small camp)
- Bad Blood Settlement - Extreme North West of all of Skyrim. Easy to find - many Yautja here - and just on the edge of the destroyed Xeno temple.
- random encounter - forest NW of Twilight Sepulchers ( a bit hidden)
- Xenos in the Great NW swamps, south east and across the river from Solitude
- Many old and forgotten drop pods way out in glaciers
