By 2499, Confederate scientists had developed a short-lived defensive matrix that could be created by science vessels. The technology gained a favorable reputation during the Brood War, where matrix technology was credited for saving many lives.
The Defensive Matrix absorbs 250 points of damage and reduces each hit to one damage. The shield is not perfect; some damage will "leak" and reduce the unit's HP.
Wings of LibertyEdit
The battlecruiser produces a shield which absorbs 200 damage. The ability is not smartcast.
The defensive matrix is a temporary deflection field that helped save countless assets from a premature death during the original Brood War. Now the minds at LarsCorp have adapted this technolgoical marvel to protect the massive hull of the Minotaur-class battlecruiser.
In "Mist Opportunities," harvesters can temporarily protect themselves with a defensive matrix.
The following section contains information from a previous version of StarCraft II which is no longer valid.
One model of the battlecruiser could protect itself with a defensive matrix in earlier builds.
