Firebat SC2 DevRend3

Early firebat render

The firebat is a StarCraft and StarCraft II unit which underwent considerable development during the latter game.

The firebat was set to return in StarCraft II, but was canceled during development.[1] They have been replaced in the most recent build by the marauder.[2] It was found that their role overlapped with hellions.[3]

Firebats were produced from a factory, as they had bigger, more powerful suits that gave them a greater ability to withstand enemy fire,[4] which granted them more hit points.[5] They could still fit into bunkers[6] and could be healed by medics.[7]

Firebats once had a "Bearclaw Nozzle" upgrade,[8] later renamed Incinerator Gauntlets.

The firebat appeared in the Wings of Liberty, Heart of the Swarm, and "Legacy of the Void" campaigns however.
