Elite marines are special forces marines employed by Nova in Co-op Missions. They replace the standard marine.

Game UnitEdit

Elite marines deploy in teams of four from Nova's barracks for a cost of 600 minerals. Compared to normal marines they have over 300% HP and deal 150% damage. Instead of a killcount rank they have an individual name and the listed rank of corporal.
