Welcome to Predator Month!  Why Predator Month?  Because I got a lot of Predator noms.  This one was nominated by Pittfox.

All gear for Predator and some machine guns for the Terminator.

Leaning towards the Terminator (I assume we're using the ones from the original films). I suspect it has the visual acuity to see the Predator even with it's cloak up (the cloak has a tendency to fail at some point anyway), and it's probably tough enough to endure the Predator's weapons long enough to either shoot it, or get up close and finish the job in close-quarters. I don't see the Pred trying too hard to avoid close-quarters combat either, because they fight not primarily to win but to test themselves in battle, and it'll get one hell of a test going toe-to-toe with a T-800. I'm picturing the Pred vs Dutch H2H sequence here, but with the roles reversed.

It's not just the strength you have to consider, it's the durability. Remember how the Pred reacted to getting punched by Dutch? That's pretty much how a T-800 would react to getting punched by a Pred. Then it'd swing back and make the Pred spit blood.

What if it was Wolf or a higher level Predator?

Granted there are different terminators as well.

Edge to Terminator based on durability and Pred's invisibility being worthless.

The shoulder cannon should wreak havok, but I think without cloaking or sneak enough bullets drop the pred

If the Terminator raped anybody, he'd rape the Predator.

All gear for the Pred? In that case, the Predator should win it. That plasma caster’s gonna cause significant damage to the Terminator.

In the original film, we see the wristblades strike some rocks and do no visible damage to them.

In Predator 2, the Pred attempts to slow it's fall by repeatedly striking the side of a building with it's wristblades, but the wristblades fail to visibly penetrate the wall.

In Predators, Hanzo is able to parry wristblades with his sword with no visible damage to the sword.
