The group encounters Ronald Noland, a solitary U.S. Air Cavalry soldier, who has survived on the planet for “ten seasons” by hiding and scavenging from the Predators and their victims. He takes the group to his hideout and explains that the Predators hunt in threes, sharpening their killing skills by abducting warriors and dangerous beasts from other worlds and bringing them to the planet. Noland also reveals that there is a blood feud between the larger and smaller Predators. Royce devises a plan to free the smaller Predator being held prisoner, hoping it will take them home using the larger Predators’ spaceship.
Noland traps the others and attempts to use smoke to suffocate them. Having gone mad, he plans to kill them for their equipment. Royce uses an explosive to attract the Predators to the hideout. Noland is killed by the Tracker Predator which then releases the group. In the ensuing chase, Nikolai uses two claymore mines to kill the Tracker, sacrificing himself. The remaining group are intercepted by the Berserker. Stans distracts it by attacking it with his shiv, allowing the others to escape before being killed. Hanzo stays behind to duel the Falconer Predator with a katana he found in Noland’s hideout, killing it before dying from his wounds.
