"Infested marines? Oh hell Jimmy, I don't care for that notion one bit."

The infested terran is a unit in StarCraft II created by an infestor. It is often referred to as the infested marine.

A similarly-themed melee weaker with lower stats, the infested terran or "infested colonist" appears in campaigns and Co-op Missions.

Game UnitEdit

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.

In Patch 4.0, the infested terrain's gauss rifle was made to only target ground units, and they were given the infested rocket ability, doing heavy damage to air from a longer range. Infested marines were also made to benefit from ranged and carapace upgrades.

Wings of Liberty CampaignEdit

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]

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.

Co-op MissionsEdit

Alexei Stukov is able to construct infested marines from his infested barracks. These marines have a timed life, but deal high damage and are rallied alongside infested civilians with his psi emitter ability. Stukov also gets infested troopers, which are identical to infested marines, but are spawned for free from the infested bunker and have a shorter timed life.

Infested terrans serve as enemies on the Dead of Night and Miner Evacuation maps, and are spawned during the Outbreak mutator.
