HyperionArmory SC2-WoL Story1

The Armory during the final stages of the game

Bay 12 is a compartment aboard the battlecruiser Hyperion.

During the Second Great War, it was used as an armory for Raynor's Raiders managed by Rory Swann.

Game EffectEdit

CharactersEdit

UnitsEdit

In the StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty campaign, many missions unlock new units. Some units appear in the armory when unlocked. Selecting them displays an animation and a short lore blurb.

Because the campaign forces the player to choose between spectres or ghosts, only the unit which the player received from their choice will be available to view.

UpgradesEdit

Upgrades for unlocked units are bought with credits at the console. Upgrades are automatically applied to units, and their mercenary counterparts, during missions for no additional cost.

BaseEdit

BunkerEdit
Particle Accelerator SC2 Icon Projectile Accelerator

Bunker units gain +1 range.

Wolfe Industries has developed a bunker port that houses a magnetic rail. This device dramatically accelerates all projectiles coming out of the port, increasing the range of all weapons fired from the bunker.[1]

Campaign Acquisition
Acquired from Hyperion armory for $40,000
ve

Increases bunker capacity by 2.

This bunker uses a high-density neosteel frame, leaving more room inside for additional infantry without increasing the overall bunker footprint. While ordinary bunkers can hold a maximum of four infantry, neosteel bunkers can house up to six infantry in fortified comfort.

Missile TurretsEdit
TitaniumHousing SC2 Icon1 Titanium Housing

Missile turrets gain +75 hit points.

Enlightened Dynamics has developed a new titanium housing for the missile turret. Early adopters have found this housing to be noticeably tougher than the original, allowing missile turrets to absorb more punishment before falling.[1]

Campaign Acquisition

ve

Missile turrets gain Hellstorm Battery secondary attack. Hellstorm batteries fire 8 missiles that each deals 1 point of splash damage.

Hellstorm Bateries are an additional weapon set that can be fitted to your missile turrets. Each battery fires several small missiles that accompany the standard missile attack and saturate the target area on impact. Hellstorm Batteries are a great way to welcome swarms of enemy flyers to your base. Don't disappoint!

SCVEdit
AdvancedConstruction SC2 Icon1 Advanced Construction

Multiple SCVs can build a structure. Each additional SCV reduces build time. Building cost remains the same.

This revolutionary computer allows multiple SCVs to work on the same structure simultaneously. The onboard assistant is so efficient at coordinating SCV efforts that building costs are unaffected. This upgrade is vital when trying to get a base up and running quickly, or when trying to rebuild a broken defense.[1]

Repair SC2 Icon1 Dual Fusion Welders

SCVs repair twice as fast.[1]

The SCV's ability to get damaged mechanical units back to full life, and even to repair units while they are taking damage, has been a key advantage over the protoss and the zerg. The Dual-Fusion Welder allows SCVs to repair at twice the speed, improving their ability to keep damaged units alive in the heat of battle.

GeneralEdit

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.[1]

Upgrades all command centers to orbital commands.[2]

ATVX now manufactures a satellite comlink that can reveal unexplored areas on the map. The conlink can also call down a MULE. A MULE gathers much faster than an SCV and can produce a major surge in mineral production. Because it is a prototype, the MULE will come apart after a short period of time, but it is still well worth the cost.

InfantryEdit

MarineEdit

Increases the hit points of marines by 10.

M98 Combat Shields are a vital upgrade for any marine fighting on the front line, 30mm of bonded carbide may not sound like much, but field tests have shown a full 25% increase in marine suitability when equipped with Combat shields.

Enables affected infantry to attack and move 50% more quickly.

Stimpacks provide a temporary boost to the marine's attack and movement speeds by dosing him with a mix of adrenaline, endorphins, and aggression enhancers.

This frenzied burst does come at the expense of the marine's health. Medical treatment is highly advisable after multiple uses.

MedicEdit
Healing SC2 Icon1 Advanced Medic Facilities

Medics no longer need a tech lab to be trained.

Storing medpacks has traditionally required the advanced facilities of the tech lab. Remedius Medical Systems now offers a storage facility that can be housed in the barracks itself, eliminating the need for the tech lab when training and outfitting medics.[1]

Campaign Acquisition

Medics heal targets 25% faster and use 33% less energy per heal.

The stabilizer medpack is a new generation of medical nanobot that heals targets more efficiently and can be injected at faster rates. Show your marines that you truly care by outfitting your medics with stabilizer medpacks today![1]

FirebatEdit

The firebat's attack area increases by +40%.

The upgraded gauntlet channels the flamer's fuel through multiple ports rather than the single port of the previous generation, resulting in a much wider flame without any loss of intensity, allowing your firebats to hold enemies at bay with a literal wall of fire.[1]

Incinerator Gauntlets was previously known as Bearclaw Nozzles.[3]

Campaign Acquisition

Firebats gain +2 armor

Juggernaut Plating strengthens the firebat's natural weak spots and thickens the helmet and chest pieces. This upgrade allows firebats to shrug off the attacks of other infantry units and soak up incredible amounts of damage from smart-arms fire.[1]

Campaign Acquisition
Acquired from Hyperion armory for $85,000
ve
MarauderEdit

The marauder's attack slows non-massive ground units in target area.

Concussive Shells actually form a gravitational warp when they detonate. This warp not only damages the target, but it also slows the movement speed of all nearby units to a crawl for a short period of time.

Concussive Shells make marauders a great support unit against melee units, in addition to their traditional role of destroying armored targets.[1]

Campaign Acquisition

KineticFoam SC2 Icon1 Kinetic Foam

Marauders gain +25 hp.

Marauder armor can survive crushing impacts, but the same cannot always be said for the soldier inside. To help solve the problem, Wolfe Industries offers a Kinetic Foam undersuit that protects the soldier from the violent impacts the armor takes.

Surely the lives of your marauders are worth the small investment required to outfit them with kinetic foam.[1]

Campaign Acquisition

ReaperEdit
U-238Rounds SC2 Icon1 U-238 Rounds

Reapers gain +1 range and deal an extra +3 damage vs light units.

U-238 Rounds are made from depleted uranium. These rounds are extremely dense (1.67 times the density of lead), so they have increased range and hit lightly armored units much harder.[1]

Campaign Acquisition
Acquired from Hyperion armory for $60,000

Reapers can hurl G-4 cluster bombs. G-4 cluster bombs deal 155 splash damage to all units and structures in a radius of 3.

This anti-personnel charge detonates shortly after being thrown. The initial blast ejects a cluster of smaller charges that deal additional damage in a large radius.

Please note that Enlightened Dynamics assumes no liability for deaths due to friendly fire.

VehicleEdit

HellionEdit
HellionTwinFlame SC2 Game1 Twin-Linked Flamethrower

Doubles width of the hellion's flame attack.

ATVX has developed a twin-linked version of the hellion's flamethrower. This model produces a flame that is twice as wide as the original.

Hellion can now literally douse groups of enemy units in overlapping flames with this upgrade.[1]

InfernalPreigniter SC2 Game1 Thermite Filaments

Hellions do an additional +10 damage to light armor, and the flames turn blue.

This upgrade laces the hellion's flame with small bits of thermite. These thermite fragments instantly burn through light armor, doing additional damage to the target's vitals.

For a small investment, your hellions can be the envy of every military organization in the sector.[1]

VultureEdit

Enhances spider mine trigger and blast radius by 33%.

This mine was developed by the Kel-Morian Combine during its siege of New Austin. The increased trigger, pursuit, and blast radiuses were critical to terrorizing the civilian population and protecting supply depots from looters.[1]

ReplenishSpidermines SC2 Icon1 Replenishable Magazine

Vultures can replenish their spider mine. Mines cost 15 minerals each and build one at a time. The ability can be set to autocast.

Enlightened Dynamics have developed a microfabricactor that lets vultures create new mines out in the field. This microfabricator uses a small number of mineral crystals each time a mine is created, but this minor hassle is a welcome change from the old system of "three and done."

Siege TankEdit

Siege tanks do +40 damage to their primary target. Splash damage remains the same.

Maelstrom Rounds have an armor-piercing tip that inflicts devastating damage on the primary target. Splash damage is identical to the standard round.

If siege tanks struck fear into the hearts of our enemies before, they will inspire abject terror when firing the Maelstrom Round.[1]

Medivac DropshipEdit
RapidDeployment SC2 Icon1 Rapid Deployment Tube

Medivacs deploy loaded troops almost instantly.

WraithEdit

Wraiths start with +100 energy.

These improved power cells provide the wraith with a large up-front energy reserve. This allows newly built wraiths to instantly engage in missions with heavy cloaking requirements, rather than having to wait for the reactor to build up a sufficient charge.[1]

VikingEdit

Vikings deal splash damage when attacking air units.

Ripwave Missiles are anti-matter warheads that can damage multiple air targets with deadly bursts of sub-atomic shrapne.

SpectreEdit

Grants spectres the psionic lash ability. Psionic lash deals 200 damage to target unit.

With proper training, spectres can unleash a concentrated blast of psionic fury at a single target. This blast drains the spectre's energy reserves, but it will kill most targets outright. For obvious reasons, Remedius Medical Systems recommends limiting this training to spectres who have an exceptionally high opinion of their superior officers.

Easter Eggs Edit

DevelopmentEdit

HyperionArmory SC2-WoL DevStory1

Old version of the armory

The armory originally had a different design.

Numerous upgrades for units were cut from the final game, and some upgrades functioned differently than in the final product.

  • SCV Fusion Welder: $ 35,000 - Reduces repair costs by -25%.
Command Center
  • Terran Building Moduler Construction: $45,000 - Reduces building costs by -10%.
Missile Turret
  • Turret Devastator Missiles: Missile Turret gains an alternate attack with range 8 that deals 50 damage.
Perdition Turret
  • Distortion Sensors: $25,000 - Perdition turret gains detection.
Firebat
  • Viral Plasma - Damage +2, duration 4 seconds
Medic
  • Stabilizer Med-packs: Medics heal an area around their target.
Hellion
  • Napalm Fuel Tanks - +1 damage/sec for 3 seconds
  • Turbo Charged Engines - Movement speed +40%

NotesEdit

Throughout the campaign, the player can earn a total of 2,280,000 credits, if all optional objectives are completed including research objectives. All available upgrades cost a total of 3,305,000 credits, plus 210,000 credits to fully upgrade ghosts or 225,000 to fully upgrade spectres, depending on which unit the player acquired.
