In Hunter mode, what exactly constitutes a character card in the armory?

I have a card that can copies one, but I'm not sure what it can double as.

All the woodland and urban cards from the armory are character cards.

Page 2 of the rules:

"8 Character card pools with the
following labels (each has 14 cards):
•Woodland – Intel
•Woodland – Strength
•Woodland – Survival
•Woodland – Tech
•Urban – Intel
•Urban – Strength
•Urban – Survival
•Urban – Tech"

Page 21 of the rules:

"The Armory
Predator character cards go into the Armory.
They represent a Predator’s equipment
and skills."

What wouldn't be a character?

I haven't played through both scenarios yet, but in LE: Alien sometimes you are instructed to put a card into the barracks (i.e. a facehugger), those cards wouldn't be characters. All the cards that start in the Armory are considered character cards.

Thanks, gang. I had forgotten about the face huggers going into the deck and didn't try the tests (as the game recommended).

Still, would have been nice to have a little clarification somewhere.

Does hunter mode improve with the tests and challenges, especially in solo?

I found hunter mode to be a little disappointing.

Hunter mode is not intended for solo play, as there are no objectives. The purpose of hunter mode is to score more points than other players, without other players you are basically just beating your own high score.

Yes, which is exactly what they mentioned when they talked about solo play for hunter mode. It's not that it's not intended for solo play (as I said, it's in the rules), it's that not a lot of effort went into it.

I went in understanding that it wasn't going to be the same experience as the hunter mode, but even then it was decidedly underwhelming.

So I was wondering if adding in those other elements brought more to the table.
