Early concept art

The C-20A was a usable weapon in early builds of StarCraft: Ghost, but was removed from the game by BlizzCon 2005.[6]

The multifunction C-20A was replaced by a few specialized weapons in later builds of StarCraft: Ghost. Its appearance and the assault rifle role went to the AGR-14 rifle, the sniper rifle role went to the BOSUN FN92 rifle, and the lockdown capability went to the E-11 Lockdown Device.[6] Its structure seems to have formed the basis of current C-10 artwork. Regardless, the C-20A has made distinct appearances in Wings of Liberty,[4] Spectres[2] and Heart of the Swarm.[7][8][9]
