Marauder is a great addition to your TV and movie streaming repertoire. This guide will discuss how to install the Marauder Kodi addon on any device compatible with Kodi, like Amazon FireStick, Android TV box, tablet, smartphone, PC, Mac, or NVIDIA SHIELD. I’ll first tell you what the addon is all about, and then I’ll provide step-by-step installation instructions.
What Is Marauder?
Marauder is a fantastic Kodi addon that gives users access to a large library of movies and TV shows. Keeping with the add-on’s pirate theme, its interface is littered with tidbits like “Movie Chest” that make the browsing experience fun and interesting. The addon itself is easy to set up and use, and it has a few preset categories that let new users get straight to the content. I especially liked the little details like the artwork and the icons. They’re a much-needed quality-of-life improvement compared to the regular Kodi interface.
But the interface alone isn’t why anyone downloads Marauder. What you want to know is how big of a library Marauder boasts, right? Well, I’m happy to let you know that Marauder has a huge collection of content to deliver, and it does so very well. Part of the application’s charm is that it shows you obscure, unknown movies along with the Triple-A titles you’ve been dying to watch. But before you download the addon, let’s talk about safety concerns.
Attention, Kodi Users!
Kodi Addons and builds offer unlimited streaming content, but could also get you into legal trouble if caught streaming free movies, TV shows, or sports. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. Kodi users are strongly advised to always connect a VPN while streaming online. A good Kodi VPN hides your identity, bypasses government surveillance, geo-blocked content, and ISP throttling (which also helps in buffer-free streaming).
I personally use ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is very easy to install on any device including Amazon FireStick. You get 3-months free and save 49% on its annual plans. Also, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you are not satisfied, you can always ask for a refund.
Is Marauder Safe and Legal to Use?
Marauder isn’t an official Kodi addon, and that means downloading it isn’t a matter of simply searching through Kodi and clicking to install it. It also means that downloading it isn’t necessarily risk-free, as Kodi developers don’t vouch for the Marauder addon. Furthermore, you’ll have to allow add-ons from Unknown Sources in order to download and use apps like these.
However, the Virus Total antivirus cleared the addon of any safety issues. Here is the screenshot of the scan:
FireStickTricks.com lacks the resources to independently verify the legality of Marauder’s library, and we’d suggest you do your own research to ensure you aren’t breaking any laws.

Before you start streaming with Kodi Addons or Builds, I would like to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and Government. This means, streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, live TV, and Sports) might get you into legal trouble.
Thankfully, there is a foolproof way to keep all your streaming activities hidden from your ISP and the Government. All you need is a good VPN for Kodi. A VPN will mask your original IP which is and will help you bypass Online Surveillance, ISP throttling, and content geo-restrictions.
I personally use and recommend ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is compatible with all kinds of streaming apps and devices.
NOTE: We do not encourage the violation of copyright laws. But, what if you end up streaming content from an illegitimate source unintentionally? It is not always easy to tell the difference between a legit and illegal source.
So, before you start streaming on Kodi, here's how to get VPN protection in 3 simple steps.
Step 1: Get the ExpressVPN subscription HERE. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it free for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for a full refund.
Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN app on your streaming device. If you are using a FireStick, I have given the exact steps starting with Step 4 below.
Step 3: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That's all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.
The following are the steps to install Kodi VPN on your Fire TV devices. If you have other streaming devices, follow Step 1-3 above.
Step 4: Subscribe to ExpressVPN HERE (if not subscribed already).
Step 5: Go to Fire TV Stick home screen. Click Find followed by Search option (see image below).
Step 6: Type Expressvpn in the search bar and select when it shows up.
Step 7: Click Download.
