Many zerg ground units may burrow, become invisible and may be revealed primarily by detectors, and may not move or attack. Exceptions are the roach, which may move while burrowed, the infestor, which may move and cast Infested Terran,[1] and the baneling, which can detonate while burrowed.

Some units can unburrow via autocast, causing them to emerge and attack when an enemy moves into range.

The ability is not smartcast.

DevelopmentEdit

In StarCraft II, an untextured model of the defiler was included in the Galaxy Map Editor for StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm.[2] The model is identical to the model later used in Covert Ops.
