Veteran is a Yautja Rank, that is higher than Elite (which also allows one to join the Elite Clan) but is lower than Elder. To be given the rank of Veteran, a Yautja must not only be a skilled hunter who has survived many hunts and battles, but they must also have honor and bravery, and must show this in front of high-ranking predators such as the Elders or even the Predator King. It is also noted with being a Veteran, that the predator is given many rewards:
- Their own throne and temple.
- Their own larger ship.
- Their own collection of masks and weapons.
- Their own settlement or land to rule over.
- Veteran predators can also hold a more specific and honored title: that of the Vanguard.
