Details are explored as the origin of Raphael Adolini’s weapon is changed in the film

The newest film in the Predator franchise, Prey, has rediscovered an important detail in film continuity. Since the release of the first film, predatorBy 1987, the tech-savvy hunter had developed a cult following.

Derived from the Yautja species, these apex predators appeared on our blue planet to hunt and prove themselves worthy hunters. However, after the first two films, the timeline of the Predator film franchise fell apart.

The film franchise has kept many mysteries, one of which is the secret of the famous rock stock gun that Greyback gave to Michael Harrigan. The mystery seems to be solved by Black Horse Comics Predator: 1718.

However, a new movie Prey has changed gun history yet again, creating the puzzle of where it came from and how it will land in Grayback’s hands.


In Preythe stone stock gun given by the trapper to Naru engraved “Raphael Adolini 1715”

Prey is one of the best films in the Predator franchise. The story takes place in 1719 in the Great Plains, and our protagonist is Naru, a member of the Comanches tribe in the middle west.

Naru can be seen admiring the Yautja spaceship, thinking of it as a thunderbird, a noble being that symbolizes strength, protection, and strength.

Naru, like other tribes, dreams of becoming a hunter, but the women of the tribe are forbidden to hunt. When a Yautja is seen hunting trappers and his tribe in the great plains, Naru takes it upon himself to prove his strength and kills the dreaded Yautja beast.

Naru and his brother, Taabe, after escaping the traps of the French fur dealer, return to their camp to save their dogs, only to find their men dead. One of the fur traders calls Naru to offer his flint stock gun to protect him.

After Taabe loses his life, Naru sneaks into Yautja by eating an orange blossom that cools his blood, rendering him invisible to the Predator’s thermal vision. He uses a rock stock to shoot the mask off his face and kills the Predator using a projectile that follows the laser from the same mask.

Just finished #Prey and get big #Predator fan I really liked it especially all the references to the first two films. I was so happy to see the gun given to Danny Glover’s character at the end #Predator2 in this movie @DannyTRS @Predator https://t.co/U1DizE9X5w

At the end of the film, Naru offers a gun to the tribal chief, and it is revealed that the gun is the same stock stone offered to Harrigan by Yautja Greyback. To refresh the memory, in 1990’s Predator 2, after Danny Glover’s character Harrigan kills the Predator, Greyback offers a gun with “Raphael Adolini 1715” engraved as a sign of respect.

While viewers thought that the mystery behind Adolini’s rock stock would be solved in the sequel, sadly, it wasn’t.

Fans will have to wait six years before release Predator: 1718, a comic by Dark Horse that unravels the mystery of the gun. The stockpile of flint belongs to the pirate captain Raphael Adolini, who clashed with his crew over the mutiny.

Enraged that his crew robbed the sacred gold of a church, he took them one by one. Predator Greyback appears to help Adolini, but the captain is shot in the back by a member of his crew.

With a dying breath, Adolini offered Greyback a stock of flint.

Previously, while fans had an explanation for the mystery of the weapon, they now have two. The sad part is that the two revelations are in contrast, meaning that one of them is in the Predator continuity and not both.

We assume Prey has rediscovered Adolini’s comic book origins. The gun is now expected to be picked up by Greyback, who will then be given to Harrigan.

How this will happen is the next mystery as fans await the Prey sequel. However, fans should pay attention to the animated credits scene featuring several alien ships approaching the Comanche camp. Maybe the creators have already hinted at a sequel.


Prey now available on Hulu. The film stars Amber Midthunder as Naru, Dakota Beavers as Taabe, Ray Strachan, Stefany Mathias, and Dane DiLiegro as Predator.
