Wings of Liberty CampaignEdit

SC2 Lab Ultra Capacitors Icon Ultra Capacitors

Attack upgrades improve attack cooldown of affected units by 5% per level.[3]

These self-replicating ultra capacitors reduce the reload time of weapons and systems. Now each of the weapon upgrades at the armory and engineering bay increases attack speed by 5% in addition to increasing damage.

Campaign Acquisition
Acquired from Hyperion laboratory for 5 protoss research points
ve
SC2 Lab VanPlating Icon Vanadium Plating

Armor upgrades increase health of affected units by 5% per level.[3]

We have created a new lightweight alloy called vanadium. Vanadium diffuses weapon impacts much more efficiently than traditional armor plating, and it better preserves the life of our units. Now each of the armor upgrades in the armory and engineering bay increases unit life by 5% in addition to increasing armor.

Campaign Acquisition
Acquired from Hyperion laboratory for 5 protoss research points

FireSuppression SC2 DevGame1 Fire Suppression System

All structures repair themselves to 50% life. All structure fires are automatically put out.

This all-in-one safety system automatically dispatches robotic drones to put out any fires and perform basic repairs on damaged structures. Although these drones are effective at doing basic repairs, they do not have a strong enough AI to perform the more delicate repairs needed to restore a structure past half life.[4]

DevelopmentEdit

Armory SC2 DevRend1

Development render

During development of StarCraft II, it was not known at first what tech buildings would be used to upgrade the terran arsenal. For the sake of having placeholder artwork, a task was given to update the armory so the building could be used in the meantime while artists waited for a design decision. The update was a simple translation of the sprite artwork of the original game to 3D. The armory was never challenged, and after the art was complete it made it all the way into the final release of the game.[5]

Heart of the SwarmEdit

The armory will have only one armor upgrade for ground and air units.[6]
