The infested terran is a unit in StarCraft II created by an infestor.

StrategyEdit

An infestor uses 25 energy to deploy an infested swarm egg a short distance away; the infested terran hatches five seconds afterwards. An infestor may deploy as many infested terrans as energy allows.[1]

Infested terrans have short lifespans and move slowly, but have slightly better health and attack power than marines. Infestors may spawn infested marines while burrowed, enhancing surprise and utility for economy raiding. Infested terrans provide on-demand firepower against ground and air targets.

Game UnitEdit

In the campaign of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, infested terrans are referred to as "infested marines", distinguished from their unarmed infested colonist counterparts.[2]

RewardEdit

The infested marine portrait can be earned with the Team Zerg 50 achievement.

Criteria

Destroy 30 units with Infested Terrans in a single League game.

DevelopmentEdit

Heart of the Swarm CampaignEdit

The infestor does not have the ability to create infested terrans in the campaign. Instead, these are produced from garrisons infested by virophages.

TriviaEdit

At the end of their limited duration, the infested terran death animation depicts them committing suicide with their gauss rifle.
