Backstory:

During a hunt, the Predators wear a technologically advanced mask that offers protection and adds to their sensory abilities. The mask is equipped with multiple vision modes, including night vision and thermal vision. Fellow warriors appear white while targets appear red or green. Predators can use the mask as a targeting device, zooming in on their prey for precise kills at long range. Protecting the Predators, the mask acts as a pollution filter while shielding their flesh from the acidic blood of the Xenomorph aliens and the weapons of interfering humans. They also use Ceremonial masks during their rituals. These masks are ornately decorative, rather than technologically enhanced. 

Those who have illustrated superior battle or leadership skills are distinguished as Elder Predators. Elders’ armor, clothing and masks differ from those of other Predators to show their authority, and their hunting abilities are believed to far exceed those of the common members of the Predator species.
