A hybrid reaver

The hybrid reaver is an extremely powerful zerg-based[1] type of hybrid.

HistoryEdit

A reaver's visage

A hybrid reaver was created in a secret Terran Dominion facility at Castanar.[2]

This article or section contains information from the optional Rebellion Missions in StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty.

Raynor's Raiders discovered the creature and destroyed its holding cell. When the cell was destroyed, the reaver then proceeded to destroy the facility. The Raiders barely escaped into a Hercules, after which the reaver "screamed" at them.[2]

ArmageddonEdit

In a dark apocalyptic future foreseen by the Overmind and others through it, many hybrid reavers were deployed to help destroy the protoss during their last stand.[3]

Skygeirr StationEdit

Sarah Kerrigan and her zerg minions encountered many hybrid reavers on Skygeirr Station. These reavers, along with a band of Tal'darim protoss, were under the control of the shapeshifter Emil Narud.[4]

HybridViper SC2 DevArt1

The hybrid viper

Originally the protoss-based hybrid destroyer was the only type of hybrid unit in StarCraft II. The idea of a zerg-based hybrid had been pitched by Samwise Didier in concept art,[1] (labelled as a "high breed")[5] but was effectively abandoned for a year. Eventually the idea of a zerg-based hybrid was pitched within the design team and Didier's concept was resurrected as the hybrid viper. In the final game it was known as the hybrid reaver—mostly the same, but unlike the viper, it had tentacles coming off its back,[1] that aren't visible on lower graphic settings (the player must set "effects" to medium or above).

Known ReaversEdit

NotesEdit

The reaver's portrait is available in StarCraft II. It is a portrait reward available for the Team Random 1000 achievement.
