The ghost academy is a terran structure in StarCraft II. It is required for the production of ghosts and with a factory can produce nukes.

Game StructureEdit

Arm NukeEdit

Main article: Arm Nuke

In StarCraft II, ghosts maintain the ability to launch nukes. The laser pointer has been replaced with a blast footprint visible to the launching player; however, the opponent sees only a red dot.

ArmNuke SC2 Icon1 Arm Silo with Nuke

Arms the silo with a tactical nuke.

Nukes take 20 seconds to land, but they deal up to 300 (+200 vs. structures) damage in a large radius.

Wings of Liberty CampaignEdit

All structures repair themselves to 50% life. All structure fires are automatically put out.

This all-in-one safety system automatically dispatches robotic drones to put out any fires and perform basic repairs on damaged structures. Although these drones are effective at doing basic repairs, they do not have a strong enough AI to perform the more delicate repairs needed to restore a structure past half life.[2]

Nova Covert OpsEdit

In Nova Covert Ops, the ghost academy automatically produces nuclear missiles for no cost over a period of five minutes.[3]

Co-op MissionsEdit

The ghost academy can be build by Nova in Co-op Missions. They research upgrades for Nova (ghost upgrades are researched at the tech lab) and allow her to train spec ops ghosts. Nova automatically begins every mission with a ghost academy, but if it is destroyed can build another as a normal structure. She is otherwise limited to a single academy at a time.

DevelopmentEdit

GhostAcademy SC2 Cncpt1

Concept art

The ghost academy uses the former shadow ops render. It was capable of flying in early versions of the game, but this was later removed, as it was decided that only unit-producing structures should be capable of doing so.[4] Such a technique unbalanced the ghost academy in multiplayer, as players could move it to an obscure corner of the map and nuke the enemy at will.[5]
